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.

  2. 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!

  19. 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!

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

  26. 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

  27. 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. :)

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

  29. 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!

  32. 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.

  33. 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

  34. 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

  35. 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!

  36. 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.

  37. 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.

  38. 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.

  39. 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!

  40. 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~

  41. 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!

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

  43. 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.
