Homemade Blueberry Coffee Cake

After slumming it on Friday with nothing but Thin Mint and Mini-Robin's Egg, which incidentally was what we hoped to get from the Easter Bunny two weeks ago, we are all very glad to see on the sign-up sheet Jeff's name written in a proud and bold font, taunting the depressing and disappointing void on Tuesday's slot.

Sitting leisurely in the afternoon with a thin slice of coffee cake and a steaming cup of coffee is one of life's little pleasures. And Jeff's homemade blueberry coffee cake has made this possible for us on this fine Monday afternoon. The tender and crumbly texture of the cake paired with the rich and fruity flavors of the blueberry make Jeff's creation one of the best coffee cakes in recent memory.

The cake was quickly devoured, yet Cake Hour attendance was significantly reduced in Rolf's absence. It seems most people did not stay longer than the time necessary to finish a slice of cake and a cup of coffee. The few who lingered prattle on about the harmful effects of sugary food and gluten-containing products.

All in all, we thoroughly enjoy Jeff's coffee cake and it marks a very good start for this week. Hopefully someone is going to surprise us with an unannounced cake hour appearance tomorrow.
