I think you’ll also love this Blueberry and Lemon Loaf Cake, the flavour is incredible. Yet another favourite cake recipe of ours is Cinnamon Bun Cake. YUM!

Nothing beats what comes from farms, don’t you agree?

We have dear friends that are local farmers, and it’s been an eye-opener for this city girl, for many reasons. Since meeting them, I have been introduced to the most amazing meals and dishes. Even some foods that I never liked at all, I tried out of politeness while there, and loved it.

I cannot give enough kudos to the Mrs. of the farm, she’s always in the kitchen and making meals for dozens. Even when just the immediate family is home, you just never know who’ll stop by to help in the fields or in the barn – and being invited to dinner is a must.

So, if making that Thanksgiving dinner wore you out – imagine doing that every day.

Recently I came across the Farmer Favourites section in the collection of recipes at Since I know all too well that great things come from farms, recipes included, a smile spread across my face when I discovered this section.

When browsing through the featured Farmer Favourites recipes, I spotted a recipe for Blueberry Cake, and knew I had to make it that day.

After all, this summer I hoarded fresh blueberries from the market, and froze a bunch of bags for baking this Fall and Winter. Perfection.
