We have still been having cold, rainy weather here in Phoenix and I've got to tell you that I have actually been enjoying it as I anticipate the approaching summer months. It occurred to me that I had better get some baking out of my system now before we hit those scorching hot days when I won't be turning on my oven.
I like to read April J. Harris' blog. She has some wonderful recipes and this one, a Blackberry Apple Cake, was very tempting to me. Unfortunately, I didn't have blackberries or some of the other ingredients called for in the recipe. But I did have some frozen blueberries and Honeycrisp apples, so I decided to make something similar, but different with the ingredients that I had on hand. The result of that decision came out quite delicious!
For ease of removing from the pan after it is baked, be sure to use a greased 9" spring form pan. I made do for years without a spring form pan, but after I got one, I realized how nice they are. I found this great set on Amazon that has 3 sizes of pans plus spatula and smoother at a great price!
You will smooth the thick batter into the pan and then top it with a brown sugar cinnamon mixture and the apples. It looks great in the pan, even before you bake it!
Now, you bake it for 45 min. The aroma is so amazing, warm and inviting! It makes your mouth water just looking at it. Here it is straight out of the oven.
I let the kuchen rest for about 10 min. after coming out of the oven. Then, removed the outer ring and used a long spatula to set it on a serving platter. This is the beauty of the spring form pan. You don't want to flip those beautiful apples upside down and hide them! The long, offset spatula is another tool I didn't know was so helpful until I got one. It is a simple thing, but is such a big help for jobs like this one.
This fruity kuchen will make a beautiful dessert or even nice breakfast coffee cake. My husband and I ate dessert first last night! That is one of the beauties of being empty nesters! You can do what you want!

Last week I went to the store and blueberries were on sale! I bought four cartons. I made a coffee cake, but it was eaten so quickly that I did not get any pictures of it. Sorry! I started thinking however, we've made many blueberry recipes here at 3 Winks, it would be handy to have one place to round them all up!
Now, I love blueberries. When I was in law school I spent my first summer in Washington doing an internship. I stayed with my friend Jackie and we had a blast, and one thing we did was go blueberry picking. That was when I learned that there are four types of blueberries! It was August when we went picking, that is actually blueberry season. So, now is a perfect time to finish off your summer with some great blueberry foods before I am unleashed to share every pumpkin recipe under the sun with you!
You can always eat blueberries straight from the bucket (wash them first!) I won't lie, I did this with two of the cartons I bought. They're so sweet and delicious and filled with antioxidants for myself and my little nugget. However, there are a lot of other options and I feel like breakfast time is a great time for blueberries. So here are six different recipes, three from our own dear blog, and three that I have found through the magic of Pinterest, to help you use up those blueberries!
1.Lemon pancakes with Blueberry Syrup
Lemon and blueberries go so well together. Blueberries are sweet and and the lemon just brightens up any dish they're in. In this post my mom shared with you how to make the perfect blueberry syrup to top these delicious pancakes. They make for a great start to your morning!
2. Blueberry Muffins
These are classic. When I think muffins, blueberries are the first to come to mind! In this post my mom shared with you how to make her delicious blueberry muffins. They're another perfect breakfast meal, but they're good at any time of day!
3. Blueberry Coffee Cake
I found this recipe at Barbara Bakes and tweaked it a little for the coffee cake I made this weekend. I didn't have any lemon to zest, but I added a teaspoon of lemon juice to the crumble on top. That combined with the lemon glaze was the perfect combination!
4. Blueberry Pancakes
Blueberry pancakes are another classic breakfast combo. I believe the first time anyone added anything to a pancake it was a blueberry. Since we already gave you one recipe involving pancakes I decided to find a vegan one for all of our vegan friends. I found this one courtesy of Connoisseurus. So my dear vegans, you can get in on the blueberry action too!
5. Overnight Blueberry Oats
One of my favorite ways to enjoy blueberries is to top them on my oatmeal. With a little honey? It's absolutely perfect! So I love this recipe from Fit Foodie for these tasty overnight oats! Overnight oats are all the rage. They make breakfast on the go so easy, and HEALTHY! Who doesn't love that? So try this tasty treat out!
6. Blueberry Dump Cake in the Crock Pot
This last recipe doesn't fit into the breakfast category really. Although, if you ate it for breakfast I would never judge you. My mom gave this recipe and tutorial back in January, and it is another fun and easy treat! I personally am a huge fan of anything I can make in a crock pot. I mean honestly, does it ever turn out bad? No way! Plus you can enjoy it with whipped cream (or ice cream!) on top!
So that is it, six tasty ways to use those blueberries you have on hand. I've provided a handy cheat sheet for you with links to every recipe. Enjoy!

Lemon Pancakes with Blueberry Syrup first published on 3 Winks Design.
Sometimes we like to have breakfast for dinner. So, when Alicia mentioned to me that she made homemade blueberry syrup and she thought it would be great to blog about, I thought it was a great idea! Unfortunately, she hadn't taken any pictures, and she was out of blueberries. "You'll have to do it mom," she said. Since I had just gone grocery shopping and had found blueberries at a great price, I decided that last night would be a breakfast for dinner night!
Of course, I had to take it a step further, because that is my way. What goes great with blueberries (and just about all berries) but lemon? So, I thought, how about Lemon Pancakes? Well, let me tell you, that was a good thought! These things are so good! I used healthy ingredients like lemon, coconut oil and coconut milk. Not only is it breakfast for dinner, it is like dessert for dinner!
Be sure to start making the syrup first, to give it time to reduce. It is still kind of thin when you serve it warm, but the leftover syrup in the fridge is thicker.
Do you enjoy breakfast for dinner once in a while? If so, you might want to give these recipes a try!
We have some past breakfast posts that would be great as well. Just click on the links below to see some favorites.
Still need a griddle or a carafe to hold your syrup? Check out these deals.
