Happiness quite unshared can scarcely be called happiness~ C Bronte~
I thought this quote so appropriate for my Soul Food of today~As it encomapasses edible delicious food also~
A few posts ago..I shared my morning w/ Noah and his mommy blueberry picking..
Sarah from Hyacinths for the Soul~wrote to me and shared a recipe:) I find that so nice..someone reads about "Une Aventure" you had and writes to share:)
Could I resist ? No..absolutely not..
Her kind email led to a nice day baking..It wasn't even a pretty day! But Sarah made it pretty..
Blueberry Pound Cake~
2 cups AP flour(plus 1 later on)
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
2 cups sugar
2 sticks softened butter
4 eggs room temp
1 tsp vanilla
1 pint blueberries
and the aforementioned 1 cup blueberries:)
Preheat oven to 325F.
Sift the first 2 cups of flour w/ bp and salt..
Beat butter and sugar until light and fluffy
Add eggs one at a time until fluffy.
Add flour mixture..
And beat until smooth..
Mix the blueberries w/ the reserved cup of flour~
Add to batter..
Spoon the batter into a buttered and floured tube pan and bake ap 1 1/4 hrs..until golden..
Cool in pan 10mins..then on wire rack~
I added 1 tbsp of sour cream:) Because I always do to cakes..pound cakes..etc..
I added the rind of 1 lemon when I beat the butter and sugar~
I added 1 tbsp of edible dried lavender blooms..
I put the cake batter in 2 smaller buttered and floured molds..
And baked in a 300 degree convection oven for ap 1 hr.
When cooled I added a lemon juice/icing sugar/lavender blossoms glaze..and a pesticide free blue pansy as the pearl necklace..
I saved the Mini Heritage Bundt pan one for later..
Sarah..that was so nice of you..
To me this was a gracious Random Act Of Kindness..from one blogger to another:)
And from one daughter to a mom:)
One of my daughters went to NYC..she knew I would appreciate this:)It's true what they say..It does cut very well:)
Actually both daughters went to NYC..recently and both brought back heartfelt treasures:)
The silicone Heritage style ..but smaller version came in a kit..
It's just great..
