PV and I made this coffee cake after we traveled one Saturday to pick blueberries at The Berry Patch. I highly recommend them if you have a desire to purchase blueberries. It was a jaunt for us but we didn't mind. We were in the mood for a road trip and a free Saturday in June due to rain!
This will be one of those cakes we make again and again. Especially since we have 21.5 pounds of blueberries in the freezer! :) Also because it includes almond flavor and I love that!
We hope you enjoy the recipe. It was supplied by another orchard that we stopped at on our way home. Pome on the Range. We picked up some absolutely awesome tasting peaches! They also gave us some advice on how to care for our peach trees we have here at home. So glad we stopped there too!
