Blueberry Fritter Bread

This deliciously moist cake batter is packed with mouthwatering layers of wild blueberries and cinnamon sugar.



Blueberry Fritter Bread- Hun... What's for Dinner?



Summer is in full swing and boy have we been busy. The garden is looking great and weekends are being spent at the cottage.


Since we've been heading to the cottage so often, I've been baking some goodies for us to bring along, to snack on during the day. I'm not sure if it's all the fresh air we've been getting, but my kiddos have turned into insatiable ravenous beasts this summer. They are grazing all day.


I still have a few bags of frozen wild blueberries from last summer, so I decided to make something with it. My first thought was blueberry muffins, but then I remembered seeing a mouthwatering recipe for Country Blueberry Fritter Loaf over at The Baking ChocolaTess and decided to give this one a try. I changed it up a bit and my version kind of turned into a coconut blueberry fritter bread, by using coconut oil instead of butter and adding a few drops of coconut extract in the glaze. Let me tell you, it is beyond delicious! Super moist, bursting with blueberries and cinnamon sugar, with a great slight coconut taste. The kids LOVE it and my girlfriends and their kids were more than happy to sample a few pieces, while we were having some fun in the sun.

Blueberry Fritter Bread

adapted from The Baking ChocolaTess


1/3 C brown sugar

1 tsp cinnamon

1 1/4 C blueberries (I used wild blueberries that I had frozen)

2 Tbs sugar

1/2 tsp cinnamon

1/2 C coconut oil, at room temperature

2/3 C sugar

2 eggs, at room temperature

1 tsp vanilla

1 1/2 C flour

1 3/4 tsp baking powder

1/4 tsp salt

1/2 C buttermilk (or sour milk)


glaze

1/2 C powdered sugar

1/4 tsp vanilla

1/2 tsp coconut extract

1-3 tsp milk


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Generously grease a loaf pan with coconut oil.


In a bowl combine the brown sugar with 1 tsp cinnamon. Set aside.


In a separate bowl combine the frozen blueberries with 2 Tbs sugar and 1/2 tsp cinnamon. Set aside.


In a large mixing bowl, cream together the coconut oil and 2/3 C sugar, until fluffy. Beat in eggs, one at a time, followed by the vanilla.


Sift together the flour, baking powder and salt and add to the wet ingredients; combine well. Beat in the buttermilk until smooth.


Pour half the batter into a prepared loaf pan. Top with half of the blueberries, followed by half of the cinnamon sugar mixture. Pour the remaining batter over the blueberry layer, topping it with the remaining blueberries and cinnamon sugar. Gently pat blueberries into the batter.


Bake in preheated oven for 50-60 minutes; until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Let cool 10 minutes in the pan, before removing to a wire rack.


To make the glaze, combine the powdered sugar with 1/4 tsp vanilla extract, coconut extract and milk; using as much milk needed for desired consistency. Let cake cool 15 minutes, before drizzling with glaze.

I originally saw this recipe on Pinterest (via Six Sister's Stuff) and it had my tummy rumbling so hard, that I knew I had to make it. I had chicken in the freezer, so decided to make this chicken on a day where I would be at school all day. Nothing like walking into the most amazing smell, when you get home from a busy day of work! 
I love that this recipe is so simple, yet it is out of this world delicious. Sweet and savory combine, to coat this tender chicken. It literally fell apart as I tried to remove it from the crock pot. Once tossed with the thickened glaze, I served it with cooked rice/fried rice and some fresh snap peas. It was an amazingly fantastic crock pot meal, that I will be making again and again.

Bacon-Mozzarella Accordion Garlic Bread

A fresh baguette is stuffed with bacon, cheese and garlic butter, for an addictive appetizer.



When we used to go out to eat, if it is on the menu, we would order a bruschetta type accordion bread. I thought I could make an awesome garlic bread, using the same concept, but adding ingredients that we totally love. We often like to top leftover garlic bread with mozzarella cheese, to make it seem new again, so I wanted to incorporate that between the garlicky slices or baguette. And we all know how AWESOME bacon is right??





This is a super simple, yet deliciously impressive appetizer. I'm sure your guests would all Oooh and Ahhh over the ooey gooey bread with bacon. They would be totally CRAZY if they didn't!! The kids really loved this too. The inside was soft and garlicky, full of cheese, bacon and nice fresh green onion. The outside was crispy and buttery.

2020 has been turned upside down. My kids have not seen friends, or the inside of a school since March. While we do have our social bubble, this bubble consists of family and a few select friends.

With Halloween fast approaching, I have been thinking of how to make sure my children have a super fun day, but not put our bubble at risk. It would be much easier if my health was 100%, but we will make the best of our Halloween at home.
