Oh well! all is not lost;I have enough cut the right way to make the smaller version of my table runner but that was not my intentions. So I leave the sanctuary of my sewing room to go into my kitchen... I hate to admit it but food is a great comfort when I'm down....I decided to bake... what better scent than the fresh smell of baked apple pie right out of the oven! These will disappear fast when the family comes over for our labor day dinner. This holiday week-end calls for my favourite blueberry dessert, especially at this time of the year when fresh blueberries are in abundance.
This is a delicious dessert where every bite has the taste of blueberries.
Nova Scotia Blueberry Cream Cake:
1½ cups all-pupose flour
½ cup white sugar
1½ tsp baking powder
½ cup butter
4 cups blueberries ( fresh or frozen )
2 cups sour cream
½cup white sugar
½cup white sugar
2 eggs yolks
1 tsp. vanilla
Preheat oven to 375º F (190º C). Grease a 9 inch springform pan.
In a medium bowl , stir in the flour,½ cup of sugar,and baking powder. Mix in the butter by pinching with fingers until it resembles course crumbs. Stir in the egg and 1 tsp vanilla. Pat lightly into the bottom of the prepared pan.
Pour blueberries over the top of mixture.
In another medium bowl, whisk together sour cream,½ cup of sugar, egg yolks and 1 tsp vanilla until smooth. Pour over the blueberries.
Bake for 60 to 70 minutes in the preheated oven until top is lightly browned. Cool completely, then run a knife around the edge of the pan. Remove the outer ring of the pan, and cut into wedges to serve.
Enjoy....from Joan's kitchen
The afternoon spent in my kitchen made me stop and reflect on a vision of a table runner in the longer version; so off I go to cut the new one with special attention to that piece which I cut wrong. They say you will not forget the mistake you made, the next time around, but I am not taking chances, I wrote it on my pattern, in BOLD letters.
This one I am making it (same pattern Twist and Turn) in the Kansas Troubles .. Cranberry Wishes.....
