Give me any excuse to have cake for breakfast! 

blueberry peach coffee cake

Coffee cake is a dream, because it’s really just dessert for breakfast. I mean, who doesn’t want a fluffy cake topped with streusel and icing first thing in the morning with a mug of piping hot coffee?

Set it all out on a patio while looking at the water in the cool morning air and summer is MADE.

Gotta make that happen. ASAP.

This super summery coffee cake is lovely because it’s loaded with summer fruit. You can make it the night before and serve it the next morning for guests, or yourself, or your family – or even take it somewhere. It can also be real dessert, of course. Or an afternoon snack with coffee or tea!

cake batter with blueberries and peaches

I LOVE the blueberry peach combo. There is something about it that is just so summery, so delicious and also, so pretty!

In The Pretty Dish, I have a blueberry peach cobbler bar recipe that is just wonderful. One of my favorite things. The blueberries burst and get so juicy and the peaches taste like cobbler. So darn good.

This coffee cake is like that! Like a giant blueberry muffin studded with precious little peach chunks.

Summer in a cake!

The cake is topped with my favorite crumb topping that I’ve used on coffee cakes in the past and that I use on all my muffins. Then, a classic icing over top for that extra sweetness that no one needs, but it completes the coffee cake!

I adore how fluffy and warming this cake is.

In a season where we are used to enjoying mostly ice cream or shakes or frosty treats, a cake like this is a welcome little change – comforting and perfect. (more…)

Dole Blueberries Have Been Recalled in Four States

Before you start mixing a new batch of muffin batter or tossing together the filling for a blueberry pie, take a peek in your refrigerator. Dole issued a recall of fresh blueberries due to cyclospora contamination on June 24th. In a statement, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) said that "Dole Diversified North America, Inc. is coordinating closely with regulatory officials."

According to the FDA, cyclosporiasis is an intestinal infection caused by the cyclospora parasite. "A person may become infected after ingesting contaminated food or water," said the announcement. "Common symptoms include severe abdominal pain, diarrhea, nausea and vomiting, body aches, and fatigue. The infection is treated with antibiotics and most people respond quickly to treatment." Fortunately, the Centers for Disease Prevention and Control (CDC) says that individuals with a healthy immune system will recover from an infection caused by the parasite.

I have the prettiest blueberry lavender scones to brighten up your breakfast table!

lavender glazed blueberry scones

These bursting blueberry bites of love and blanketed with a sweet and slightly floral glaze that tastes amazing. Scones with summer fruit are one of my favorite things and I can hardly handle how delicious these are! It’s like a big bite of blueberry muffin, but not quite as sweet and with a lovely little icing on top. 

So fun!

lavender glazed blueberry scones

I love the blueberry lavender combo. A few years ago, I made this blueberry ricotta cake with lavender glaze and it’s just fantastic.

Like my other favorite lavender treats, I have two ways of bringing in the lavender flavor. I’ve been making things with lavender for years now and initially, I only ever flavored things with the dried culinary lavender flowers. This is a great method and I do love the flowers. I have them on hand at all times.

It’s how I make my favorite lavender coffee syrup. It infuses a classic lavender flavor and is super good! 

P.S. I never want to forget about this lavender latte ice cream either. OMG.

However, I have found lavender extract and I LOVE that too for baked goods. For things like cakes or cookies or even these scones, I find that it brings a lavender flavor throughout the treat that can be hard to achieve with the dried flowers. Both the flowers and the extract are pricey, but both last a really long time, so you can store them on hand and have lavender dessert any time you wish!

Speaking of, I never really consider scones to be dessert. Unless it’s, like, breakfast dessert. I mostly prefer savory breakfast dishes, but then after breakfast I still want a bite of something sweet.

Enter: breakfast dessert.

It’s just like that!

These are perfect for breakfast dessert, or regular old breakfast if you’re not a crazy person like I am. They are great for brunch, afternoon tea or snacks or even real dessert at night.  (more…)

Zoë François is the author of Zoë Bakes Cakes and even though her name is French, she’s an American cake baker. Known for a series of books on making Artisan Bread in 5 Minutes a Day, as well as books that continue that theme for making pizza, flatbread, holidays breads, and gluten-free breads, Zoë has finally turned her talents as a pastry chef to cakes. After growing up in a commune where the closest she got to sugar was a raisin, Zoë discovered Twinkies, which awakened her to the wonderful world of sweets and started selling homemade cookies from a cart in college, which eventually led to a job decorating cakes at Ben & Jerry’s, since she admitted to me on an Instagram Live video I did with her, that she didn’t excel at scooping ice cream.

I had a similar job scooping ice cream at a very busy shop while in college. Challenges included a persistent stressed muscle near my upper arm, which didn’t get better the more ice cream I scooped. There were customers who’d order one scoop, but ask me to make it “one really big scoop” because they didn’t want to pay the extra 50¢ for two scoops. And people paying for a $1.30 cone of ice cream with a hundred and thirty pennies, maybe with a few very thin dimes tossed in, which they’d line up on the stainless steel counter between us, which were nearly impossible to pick up with wet, sticky hands.

(You tell me if I was a brat by holding their ice cream cone in the other hand, while they cooled their heels waiting for me to pick up each individual coin, one-by-one, with the other – finally handing their cone over only after the last coin was pried off the counter and put in the register, which the owner monitored like a hawk. Another employee, if people were rude to her, would carefully balance – but not pack – the ice cream scoop delicately on top of the cone, so when they went outside to lick it, it would topple off. The moral of the story, as I often advise, is to be nice to people serving you food.)
