Blueberry season is in full swing so we are eating them all the time! The boys and I picked several pounds. We pick at a local place call Eagletree Farm it is pretty close to us, it only takes about 20 minutes to get there and it is well worth the drive!!! I have been making and baking all kinds of yummy treats like Blueberry Muffin Tops, Frozen Blueberry Cheesecake Bites, Blueberry Lemonade, and Frozen Yogurt Covered Berries. Blueberries freeze great so you can have them year round. I have lots more yummy stuff on my list to make so I will probably have to pick some more before the season comes to an end.
- 1 Loaf of Pound Cake (sliced into about 3/4 inch slices)
- About 1 1/2 Cups of Fresh Blueberries
- 1 Cup of Heavy Whipping Cream
- 2 1/2 Tablespoons of Powdered Sugar
- Sugar Crystals (optional)
- Lemon Extract (optional)
Depending on size of pound cake loaf, serves about 6
Next, heat cast iron grill pan, place pound cake in skillet and "grill" until slightly browned. My pound cake was pretty buttery so I didn't place any additional butter on the bread or in the skillet and it browned nicely. But you may want to lightly butter both sides before grilling to get the nice carmelized texture.
