Issues with the laundry and Coffee Cake


A letter…

Dear people that live in my house,

I think there are 3 (not including me). So can one of you explain why the laundry room makes me think there maybe 12 people living here?
Every weekend I look at all the mountains of clothes thrown across the laundry room floor and wonder who the heck is wearing all this stuff. !!
It makes me go to the maid to ask if she has a solution only to realize that I’m looking in the mirror talking to myself.  See ya’ll made me delusional.
So dear Family of mine.. Please help me out…. Think of all the wonderful things we could do if I wasn’t trying to keep up with all the laundry.. Let’s work together..Or else I might have to go on strike!

Love ya,
Ma-Dukes

Well now that I've gotten that out of the way....


Y'all want some coffee cake? 



Blueberry and Cheese Coffee Cake 




You might need these.  

1/2 cup butter, softened 
1 1/4 cups sugar
2 large eggs 
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
3/4 cup milk 
1/4 cup water
2 cups fresh blueberries
1 (8oz. package) cream cheese, cut into 1/4 in cubes.. 


Crumb Topping: 
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup sugar
2 tbsp. lemon juice
2 tbsp butter, softened 


Ok, now what: 

Pre-heat oven to 375 
With an electric mixer beat 1/2 cup butter at medium speed  until creamy; gradually add 1 1/4 cups sugar, beating well. 
Add eggs, l at a time mixing after each addition
In a separate bowl combine together 2 cups flour, baking powder, and salt.
In another bowl... sorry you'll have some dishes to wash.. combine milk and water. 
While mixing at low speed. combine flour mixture to butter mixture alternating with milk mixture..
Mix until well blended then gently stir in blueberries and cream cheese.  Just stir these don't use mixer.
Pour batter into a 9 in square pan. 

Combine 1/2 cup flour and remaining 3 ingredients for the topping; stir well with a fork.

Sprinkle mixture over batter and bake at 375 for 45-50 minutes.. 
Remove from the oven and let cool on wire rack.. or if your like me eat them immediately.. 
I can never seem to wait...






Did I mention how much I love blueberries.. and anything that has blueberries in it..

  1. I couldn't agree more on the laundry... and there are just two of us! We share 1 machine with 2 other apts, which means we don't get to do laundry very often (and I have 2 full closets), but still... I did 5 loads yesterday and I am sure just as many today!
