Blueberry Tea

Welcome friends for tea this week. I picked blueberries, baked a scrumptious coffee cake with them and we ate it all before I realized I didn't save a piece to set up my tea table for this week. Not to worry, into the archives as I've baked this cake many times and shared it previously too. I found a few other blueberry treats so we'll imagine all these yummy things set out for you with the bonus of no calories. :-)
The cake smells heavenly as it bakes with brown sugar and pecans on top. (the recipe is in the recipe section at the top of my page if you want it)
I know many people like whipped cream or ice cream on the side but we like our dessert plain.
A slice of blueberry cornbread spread with lemon curd is delicious with a cup of tea.
Blueberry muffins are perfect for breakfast, or any time.
Fresh picked blueberries make a great snack.
Since we have to imagine the goodies, why not imagine this blue willow teapot and teacup are mine. Sadly they're not, they are from a high tea enjoyed at the Blue Willow Tea Room a couple of years ago.
I'm linking with these ladies for tea:
Thank you for hosting and I hope you'll visit them and their guests for tea.

I absolutely love blueberries. You made me want some so bad!

Susan Clayton said...

I still have blueberries coming on - and strawberries as well believe it or not! Not many strawberries and they are small, just the size for a fairy perhaps?
I have done a little more baking this week than usual for summer the coffee cake looks yummy and maybe just the thing for Elevenes!

Linda H said...

Oooh, you're making me hungry with all this blueberry talk!! :)
I have made note of your blueberry coffeecake recipe... looks divine and I really like the sound of "no calories" too!

Angela McRae said...

Oh, yum! I'm such a blueberry fan that I think all of these would be absolutely divine!

I eat blueberries nearly year round, Judith because I cheat and freeze them. I too made some Blueberry Teacakes over the past few weeks...also in the freezer!...:)JP

kitty said...

Mmmm I'd love to try any of those blueberry desserts, Judith! The blue willow is such a pretty pattern and I wish it was yours, too.

Sandi@ Rose Chintz Cottage said...

Yummy blueberries, Judith! I would really enjoy a slice of your blueberry cornbread with lemon curd; sounds divine! The blue transferware is lovely, imagined or not. Thank you for joining me for tea. Now I will have to look into baking some cornbread as I'm craving it now!

Blessings,
Sandi

Oh my goodness so many delectable treats! I am not sure which one to make first. The coffee cake looks so good and if I get up early tomorrow I could get it baked and share with my friends for a late breakfast. Beautiful blog!

I love blueberries! Sadly the gardener had a little accident around my blueberry bush and cut it to the ground! Apparently he had never seen one before and mistook it for weed... Unbelievable. I'm nursing it back to life, so hopefully I'll have some blueberries next year!

Montanagirl said...

Your desserts look devine! I have such a sweet tooth. lol

ann said...

Your cake looks so delicious. I can see why it didn't last long. Do,you grow your own blue berries?

Donna said...

I adore blueberries so it was a treat to view your treats!

Janneke said...

Mouthwatering this cake and the muffins. I also have a dish with blueberries on the porch table for a snack.

Ruth Weston said...

I absolutely love blueberries! I can't imagine how I have missed your coffee cake recipe until now! Thanks on the list for today. I love blueberries and pecans. The bread is super too! Blue Willow goes with anything well, but especially blueberries! Thanks for linking to Tuesday Cuppa Tea!

Donna said...

YUM! Blueberries have been priced well at the grocery store lately, so we've been indulging too.

Beth said...

I like the blue willow teapot and teacup and I'm imagining them sitting in the teahouse along with a nosh or two - blueberry cake or blueberry cornbread - sounds great, looks great! I've saved enough blueberries from my garden in the freezer to make one more pie.
Blessings and hugs, Beth

Deborah Montgomery said...

Everything looks delicious Judith. We eat the fresh blueberries so quickly I rarely have any left over for baking. They're such a treat when they're in season. I'll have a piece of that coffee cake please. :)

podso said...

Oh my that all looks so good, including the blue willow. I think I would choose the blueberry bread with the lemon curd.

Carrie said...

Hi Judith! I'd love to sample any of those yummy looking treats, but I'm especially intrigued by the blueberry cornbread. That sounds delicious! So pretty with the blue willow. I also spotted a Butterfly Meadow party plate :). Thanks for visiting my blog, I hope you have a great week!

Johanna Gehrlein said...

Hi Judith,
thts a fabulous idea to imagine all this wonderful things with the bonus of no calories. LOL That looks all so scroumtious. Love the sweets and the china. Thank you for sharing this wonderful blueberry tea time.
Best greetings, Johanna
I will have a look for you at Pinterest. :-)

Mom Wald said...

Thank you for the calorie free Blueberry treats!

Diane at My Cottage Garden said...

Judith, they all look delicious! I actually made a blueberry coffee cake just last week, and found it too sweet (it was from the Betty Crocker cookbook. I will try this first one of yours next time we have company. Looks lovely. Hope you are getting some rain. We are here.

Karen said...

Hi Judith,
Your baking looks divine today! Mmmm. Love blueberries. Yes, I would love to have that blue willow pattern. So pretty! Have a wonderful week! Karen

September Violets said...

Your cake looks delicious with that layer of blueberries on the bottom. My brother and I recently had a discussion of our favourite berry pie. It turned out raspberry was the winner with both of us, and I think it was purely because we used to pick wild raspberries for our mom to bake into those delicious pies. Enjoy your week Judith :) Wendy x

Pondside said...

Oh yes, I want that cake recipe - I'll be checking out the link up there. I have a container of blueberries in the fridge just asking to be put into cake batter!

KathyB. said...

How fortuitous to read this now as I will be going outside to pick our blueberries in a few minutes ! Since it is raining today , it is perfect for baking too. Blueberry cobbler ? Blueberry muffins ? Blueberries in a bowl. Yum.

My Little Home and Garden said...

I take it your fine baking skills are one of the things your family must love about you, Judith! Everything looks wonderful! I am a fan of the blueberry, for sure.

Hi Judith, it's blueberry time here too, will have to try your recipe! My butterfly bench came from the company Plow and Hearth. They have a web site if you don't have their catalog.

Bernideen said...

Both your baked items look wonderful! Blueberries are perfect for baking and I know everyone looked the items you made! Thanks for sharing at Tea In The Garden!

Mary Cromer said...

Oh how delightful all of the above looks. Love those Blueberries and so good for you too. I had a green salad the other evening with white peaches and fresh blueberries and topped with poppy-seed dressing, oh yum~

Winnie said...

Your blueberry treats look amazing! I tried growing blueberries, but not with any luck. The plant grows, but hardly any fruit, and by the time it ripens the birds get to it. Must have been a fun tea you attended with the blue willow china. So pretty!

The Charm of Home said...

Oh, yum! This is how I like to bake with lots of fresh fruit! Beautiful Blue Willow!

Sra. Dª Judit: he conocido hace poco de tiempo su blog y es para mí un placer visitarlo. Lo siento pero no se inglés y tengo que leerlo traducido; con las fotografías y haciendo uso de mi imaginación, disfruto de sus comentarios. Un saludo afectuoso.
