Can you really eat cake for breakfast? You betcha! Check out this recipe for my coffee-cake inspired, gluten-free (if you’d like), blueberry-rhubarb packed perfection of a breakfast.
1 cup blueberries
1 cup rhubarb
¼ cup water
½ cup sugar
1 ½ cups flour (gluten free or all purpose)
¾ cup sugar
½ tsp baking powder
¼ tsp baking soda
¼ cup butter
1 beaten egg
½ cup almond milk (¾ cup almond milk if using gluten free flour)
½ tsp vanilla
¼ cup flour (gluten free or all-purpose)
½ cup sugar
2 tbsp butter
½ tsp cinnamon
⅛ tsp nutmeg
⅛ tsp all-spice
⅛ tsp ground ginger
350 degrees for 40 to 45 minutes
1. For compote, in a medium saucepan combine fruit and water. Bring to boil. Reduce heat and simmer until fruit is tender (about 5 minutes). Add sugar and cook ad stir over medium heat until mixture is thickened and bubbly. Set aside to cool.
2. In a medium bowl, combine all dry ingredients. Cut in butter until mixture resembled coarse crumbs. Make a well in the centre of the flour mixture. Set aside.
3. In another bowl combine wet ingredients. Mix together until egg is slightly beaten. Add wet ingredients into well of dry ingredients. Using a wooden spoon, store just until moistened (batter should be lumpy). Spread half of the batter into a cake pan approximately 8x8x2. Spread compote over batter. Drop remaining batter in small mounds onto filling.
4. In a small bowl, stir together the topping ingredients. Cut in the 2 tbsp of butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Sprinkle over coffee cake. Bake in a 350 degree over for 40 to 45 minutes or until golden.
5. Serve warm and enjoy.
