A new Baby Boy was born!!
Stephanie from Back for Seconds had a baby boy just two weeks ago.
This is very exciting news for her. If you check out her About page, you’ll see why this little guy is so precious to their family.
As I was thinking about recipes and what I was going to share, I came across a recipe for “Blueberry Boy Bait” in the copy of America’s Test Kitchen Best Summer Desserts. I was intrigued.
It’s kinda a mix between a cake and a coffee cake. I found the story behind this dessert to be interesting. It seems that this recipe was named because of the effect it had on young suitors in the 1950’s. I guess all the young men came looking for a good girl who made a killer dessert.
I’d like to think that if I were around in the 1950’s that maybe I would be courted by many eligible young men just so they could get into my baking dishes! Lol!
But seriously, this dessert was yummy. There is a sugar crackle crust to it and it’s filled with sweet blueberries.
One important step that I missed was tossing the blueberries in the flour mixture before adding them to the batter. This would have prevented the blueberries from sinking all the way to the bottom of the pan.
I hope that Stephanie and her family enjoy the Blueberry Boy Bait! We did!
And, like I said, this is a Baby Shower! Head on over to what all the ladies have decided to bring to the Shower!
