I made a mini loaf cake this afternoon, mini that i actually have the entire loaf by myself..almost.. cos i have already eaten 3/4 of it. You probably wouldnt like to see how i actually ate the cake, after slicing the one for photo taking, i just grabbed the whole loaf by hand and eat it just like that, like eating a burger or a bar of chocolate! what manners, or eating etiquette..when nobody's watching? hehe..
I made half the recipe and the amount of each ingredient is actually quite little and all i did was to do that with a wooden spoon from the beginning up till the end. Cream the butter and sugar until light, add the egg and then the dry ingredients, throw in the blueberries and lastly sprinkle some streusel on the top. I baked this in my small mini oven too..felt like a kid baking this :D . This is a very nice and tender cake and although i did not use cranberry as per original recipe, the sweet and juicy blueberries were just as good! This is our 20th bake at The Home Bakers ( THB ) where we are all baking from the same book, Coffee Cakes by Lou Seibert Pappas. You can also take a look at all who have already made this cake by clicking here.
Some changes that i made was replacing the cranberries with frozen blueberries, used freshly squeezed orange juice instead of orange concentrate and the streusel topping are actually some leftover from a cake which i baked earlier..to be posted later.
