New England Blueberry Coffee
How many U.S. states have you been too? I have not been to very many, but that doesn’t mean I don’t want to go. You know those culprits – time and money – that keep us from getting to do what we’d like to do.
So I had an idea that this summer I would travel the country from my own kitchen and invite you to come along.
This week, we’re in the New England states of Maine, Connecticut, Rhode Island, New Hampshire, Vermont and Massachusetts. I would love to visit this area of the world, because I hear it is beautiful! If you’re from New England, please leave a comment and let me know. And tell us what your favorite regional foods are – links welcome!
I chose to make this recipe for New England Blueberry Coffee Cake. I found the recipe on . The only change I made was the baking time. The time the recipe states was no where near long enough. I also forgot to add the flour to the butter and brown sugar in the topping. It still turned out, but the flour would have made it more like a crumb topping.
