How special it is to spend time with friends while enjoying a cup of coffee and homemade cake or pastry. Our library ladies, Marguerite, Jane and Nanette, always seem ready with some special treat to share with their friends and guests. This Apple Blueberry Coffee Cake is a great way to blend the blueberries of summer with the first apples of fall. It is a recipe of a dear friend, Jane Bowers, who knew how to show hospitality to others by sharing her love of cooking. 1 ½ cups sugar 2 ½ cups of flour 1 ½-2 cups of diced apples 2 eggs 2 tsps. Baking powder 1 ½ -2 cups of blueberries ¾ cup cooking oil 1 tsp. Baking soda 1 ½ tsps. Cinnamon 1 tsp. vanilla ½ tsp. salt
Mix together sugar, eggs, oil and vanilla in a large mixing bowl. Set aside. Mix together flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon. Add flour mixture to the sugar mixture and mix well. Fold in apples and blueberries (mixture will be quite stiff). Pour into a greased and floured 9 x 13 inch baking pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 35 to 40 minutes or until done.
