Blueberry Coffee Cake and the Secret Recipe Club

What a better way to jump back on the horse then to start out with this month's Secret Recipe Club recipe?? This month I was assigned Evelyne's blog Cheap Ethnic Eatz and can I just tell you that I had a blast checking out the recipes that she makes?? Some of them were a bit beyond the cooking that I do but I definitely found a bunch that I wanted to try out right away! She also has a link to pinterest and you all know how much I love my pinterest! Make it so easy to find those recipes that you want to try later on...

So many ideas went through while I was checking through her blog... I usually try to stay away from anything that has been on SRC in the past, but seriously - I wanted to blog about her brown sugar bacon waffles!! My husband is going to flip when I make those! But, I steered clear and headed for the blueberry coffee cake instead! And next will definitely be her blueberry upside down cake... GOod thing I have all those blueberries waiting for me in the freezer!!

I made this for a breakfast for my daycare kids and they LOVED it... They all came running back for seconds, which made me extremely thankful that I had made a double batch! :) I used milk instead of light cream as she called for and I have a feeling this might have cause some issues with it looking a little "curdled" when I mixed in the milk and lemon juice. I was a little concerned but went through with the rest of the recipe and no worries, it tasted fabulous when it came out and looked delicious!!
