It seems this is how the other half lives. With closets and pantry's and actual dinning room tables. Something I can only wish for.
I made sure to arrive at the house with a cake because I know the quickest way to get invited back is to show up with gifts of sweets. This particular cake is the ideal thing to bring to any kind of housewarming because people just eat it up. It dense and buttery and studded with just enough blueberries that you can convince yourself you are eating something somewhat virtuous (you aren't but but I see no issues with lying to yourself). The strussel topping provides the necessary crunch and takes this into coffee cake territory (which is a wonderful place to go). I've eaten wedges for breakfast and I also have found myself enjoying a wedge as an afternoon snack. It's a cake that works any time of day and a cake that everyone loves and it's a cake you will find yourself making constantly.
Blueberry Cornmeal Butter Cake
Recipe from the Smitten Kitchen Cookbook
Make 12 -16 servings
I have made this cake so many times it scares me. The cornmeal is probably the single greatest addition to blueberry coffee cake as itt provides just the right amount of textural contrast (and superb flavor). I promise you will love it too. I will cough up to the fact that my blueberries sink to the bottom of the cake almost every time I make this. I blame myself. If your's does the same don't be sad. It still tastes absurdly amazing.
