Blueberry Breakfast Cake

Recommended Posts



I recently stumbled across a fantastic recipe from King Arthur Flour (http://www.kingarthurflour.com) that I wanted to try out.  Of course, I had to kick it up a notch by cooking it on the Kamado Joe grill!  From the recipe description:


"This soft, almost soufflé-like breakfast dish is kind of a casserole, kind of a cake — and definitely tasty! This one-bowl treat is simplicity itself to throw together first thing in the morning."




3 large eggs
heaping 1/2 cup sugar
6 tablespoons melted butter
1 cup small-curd cottage cheese or part-skim ricotta
1 cup sour cream (low-fat is fine)
1/2 teaspoon Buttery Sweet Dough Flavor or 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3/4 cup King Arthur Unbleached All-Purpose Flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/4 teaspoons baking powder
1 1/2 cups blueberries, fresh or frozen
cinnamon-sugar, for topping




Preheat the oven to 350°F ( I used 375°F). Lightly grease an 8" round cake pan that's at least 2" deep. If your 8" round pan is shallower than 2", use an 8" square pan, or 9" round pan.


Beat together the eggs and sugar until smooth.


Add the butter, cottage cheese or ricotta, sour cream, and flavor/extract, beating until well combined.


Add the flour, salt, and baking powder, stirring or beating gently to combine.


Pour the batter into the pan, and scatter the berries evenly over the top.


Bake the cake for about 50 minutes (may take up to 1 hour), until a tester inserted into the center comes out clean.


Remove the casserole/cake from the oven, and sprinkle the top heavily with cinnamon-sugar, if desired. Let it rest at room temperature for 30 minutes, to firm.


Serve warm, in wedges, squares, or rounds cut with a biscuit cutter.
