French Toast with Blueberry Sauce

I’m taking advantage of the blueberry season and made my husband and myself a French toast with warm blueberry sauce. 

It’s so GOOD! I can’t explain in words how good this blueberry sauce really is — you just got to try making it yourself!  It’s super simple to make.  Just a handful or two of fresh blueberries, a tablespoon of water and a couple of teaspoons of sugar. Cook until the blueberries are soft and they render a blue syrup.

Pour this sauce over waffles, pancakes, ice creams or on peanut butter toast.  I love blueberries!

Blueberry Lemon Cake

Blueberries are in season and they’re one of the healthiest foods around. They are rich in anti-oxidants and they are delicious. What better way to enjoy the goodness of blueberries than to make a cake with blueberries?

The cake is a simple butter cake flavored with freshly grated lemon zest and lemon juice. The filling (compote) which has the intense blueberry flavor is made from cooking blueberries and sugar together. And the icing is a Swiss meringue butter cream with blueberry compote mixed into it.

Blueberries goes very well with lemons. I’m not exactly sure what it is about pairing these two together, but they simply taste wonderful and refreshing. This cake is definetely a summer treat!

Simple Sweet Potato Doughnuts with Cinnamon Glaze

This toothsome little treat is not your typical doughnut. It’s very soft, dense and a little chewy on the inside yet it’s crispy and sugary on the outside. Sweet potato goodness!
