Blueberry Molasses Cake

September 10, 2009

A few weeks ago, I spotted Heidi’s old-fashioned blueberry cake and decided right away that I had to make it. I’m pretty much a sucker for any recipe with the title “old fashioned” and I loved that it used blueberries and a small amount of natural molasses to sweeten the cake, rather than several cups of refined sugar. I used the molasses we picked up on our trip to Saluda, N.C. The result was similar to a blueberry coffee cake with a very mild sweetness and a bold molasses flavor. I really enjoyed it!
I recommend serving this cake for breakfast or dessert. Serve with a sprinkling of powdered sugar and garnish with mint leaves for color.

haha! you are right to be fearful of the cleanup because molasses are soooo sticky. but, if you pour carefully into a measuring cup and then into the mix, clean up is easy! just wash the measuring cup with a little soap and warm water…disolves in seconds.
