The backstory to why I like baking and how I got started is not exciting enough to share with the internet. What's important here is, that it's summer. That means two things: 1) berries galore! and 2) it is way too hot in our little kitchen to be baking in this 106-degree weather. But I do what I want. And I wanted to bake. And I had a boatload of blueberries in our fridge that needed to be consumed before they turned icky.
I found this recipe from Foodnetwork but made some timing/temperature modifications while baking (as is normal since not all ovens are created equal). Also, I think my pan was 8" instead of 9" so I had to experiment with the temperature and oven rack position in order to fully cook the center of the cake without burning the top crumblies. Because let's face it, we're all in this for the crumblies.
Now for your viewing pleasure (and because another one of my many hobbies is watercolors), here is the illustrated recipe (click to embiggen):
I'm still working on writing in straight lines so stay tuned for that milestone.
Full disclosure: the cake was good, but I messed up my measurements so here's the lesson: read the entire recipe before even starting and make sure you have all the necessary ingredients and equipment. Also, I named the cake differently than the original recipe it but that doesn't really matter, does it? If you end up making the cake, let me know your secrets to success. Thanks :)
