TWD: Quick Classic Berry Tart

This week’s selection was chosen by Cristine of Cooking with Cristine and as always you can find the recipe on her blog!

I made my tart with raspberries and blueberries which were purchased from Your Dekalb Farmer’s Market (helps keep the cost down and they were soooo yummy). I was really excited to have mostly conquered pastry cream… finally!!! Although when I was assembling the tart the cream did remind me a bit of mashed potatoes but it was well hidden by the berries. This recipe was sooo delicious and the tart definitely looked harder to make then it really was (so I will make this over and over again for company to feed my ego) 😉


TWD: Blueberry Crumb Cake

Very Crumby!

I love crumb cakes- in fact I usually crave a piece daily around 3pm. That probably stems from sitting around in the kitchen eating Entenmann’s crumb cake with my Mom with some afternoon coffee 🙂 And my husband loves blueberries so I just had to make this crumb cake!

I also love(?) to keep busy. Which is why instead of just sitting around reading a comic book, I decided to bake this cake Monday night after a long day of teaching followed up by my own grad class. Which is to say, this cake was not too involved! I am so glad I decided to make it- we ate some for dessert while it was still a little warm- wow!! Delicious! The only thing that is a bummer is the short shelf life 🙂

I’ve really enjoyed the last two recipes with getting to rub zest with sugar- what a wonderful aroma! I used an orange for this cake.

For the recipe- check out Sihan’s blog! It’s a winner!
