Eating blueberry cake hot out of the oven

Sitting on a sun-warmed bench at a playground with my face turned up to the light and the heat

Watching Martin patiently play with a little 4-year-old girl who had attached herself like a limpet, and marveling over how GROWN-UP he suddenly looked

Rocking out to great old 90s tunes in the car

Listening to blackbirds sing

Getting a backrub by shoulderblade from my daughter (very weird, though)

Seeing a stork stalk gawkily along the edge of a field

Walking outside in the clear cold night air, where the paving stones sparkle with frost and looking up at the half-moon and stars

Thinking that it's only a week until I go to the States
mood: calm
music: Throwing Muses—Dizzy


all good things, but i am especially interested in the blueberry cake :)
think u could share a recipe?

It wasn't me that made it, but I got the recipe too, because it was SO GOOD (and it ought to be considering how much sugar went in!!)

Here you go!

Blueberry Cake

250g. butter
5 dl sugar
3 eggs
5 dl flour
1 Tb vanilla sugar
200g. frozen blueberries

Melt butter in a saucepan. Take off heat and stir in sugar, then eggs, 1 at a time. Add flour and vanilla sugar and blend well. Pour in a an 8x12" pan. Sprinkle the blueberries over the dough. Bake in a 175C oven for 35 minutes.

The recipe also called for sprinkling powdered sugar over the top, but we didn't do that, and it didn't need it. SO easy and SO good!!

that sounds heavenly.
thanks so much!

That sounds yummy! Hey wait, sugar is a plant right? That must make it healthy. ;-)

I know what you mean about kids being near younger kids really showing how much they've grown up.

How long will you be stateside and 'round what parts? Not California I suppose.

Unfortunately, no. Other side of the country: Boston-area.

Mmm, so nice! We had fresh lemon-strawberry cake today, but I'm still drooling over your blueberry version. I hope the rest of your weekend is just as lovely!

Lemon-strawberry sounds drool-worthy, too. Mmmms!


Sounds like a scrumptious day. I love when the blackbirds come back and start carrying on conversations, they are such friendly birds. And I love when the sun is out and there is berry anything about!

Blackbirds are one of the best things about Europe :) And sun and berries can't be beat! :)

What a lovely list and a lovely day.
Only one week! and blueberry cake in the same day. Nice
And you reminded me of my wish to go out to a meadow were the redwing blackbirds gather and sing.

Good things on a Sunday afternoon in the spring...

Hot apple and Pear cake fresh from the oven instead of Blueberry.

Finishing a snowshoe hike up a local ski area in that same Sunshine that you were enjoying from that bench.

Thinking about how both your kids and You have grown up. (and wondering what limpets look like.)

Silently congratulating you on moving out of the 80s tunes that really suck so bad - and that you listen too often too. (get over it)

Listening to some kinds of birds chirping from the Balcony where my wife has crashed after the Skitour she did this morning.

No backrub. Dammit. must get wife off her butt.

Watching 2 hawks do a freefall pirouette just playing with each other. above the moutain top we hiked to.

Thinking about what you can buy me when you go to the states.

Sounds good don´t it?
Love Lizardbro


Thanks - I was wondering also! Love, Lizardmom


Oh, you'll be in the US soon? Wonderful! :) It's mucky here, but still, spring is good...

- Molly

Yes, on Sunday, for 2 weeks, working :) Can't wait, though I do hear it's mucky!!
