Lemon and Blueberry Gooey Cake


The lemon brings out the flavors of the blueberries and makes this gooey cake shine! This is similar to a gooey butter cake but a more rustic version.

Blueberry Clafouti

This Blueberry Clafouti is a rustic French dessert made with fresh blueberries, eggs, and milk. A mix between a custard and a fruit pie, it is one of the simplest and tastiest dishes I have ever made. I liked it so much I ate it for breakfast!

Rye & Spelt Walnut Bread

Rye & Spelt Walnut Bread

What a pleasure it was to receive this delicious submission from the stylish German baking blog minimalista. I'm smitten with her toothsome healthy rustic rye and spelt bread:

"Oh, we Germans are so into all kinds of bread... We (I) love dark breads with rustic crust that taste strong and make you use your teeth... This particular one here is more the cheese and butter kind of bread. It contains two types of flour and olive oil and walnuts. A rustic type of bread, great with a cheese platter."

Caramel Apple Crostata

Caramel Apple Crostata

Evan gets inspired and comes up with this caramel-infused apple crostata: "Give Fall a warm welcome with a rustic Caramel Apple Crostata. The smell of cinnamon and fresh baking apples will bring a little warmth to a cool Fall evening any night of the week." That sounds like great advice. :)

Starring Texan apples, cinnamon and pecans, this rustic fall cake hits all the right notes. Sweet Life lets her daughters choose the recipe and bakes this moist, delicious, "fuss-free" apple cake for her grandma - and everyone loved it, Abuelita too. :)
