Blueberry Coffee Cake II
I love this recipe! It is incredibly versatile; you can't go wrong. (I don't bother with the streusel, the cake itself is yummy.) I was looking for a coffee cake recipe using oil since I am too lazy or forgetful to make sure the butter is right. I had a ton of fresh blueberries that needed to be used quickly, so I chose this recipe. I doubled the amount of fruit, dumped in tons of blueberries. It was awesome. Then I used firm peaches and Splenda/sugar mix. Perfect. Frozen berries. Perfect. Experimented with chopped apples and applesauce. Perfect. You cannot go wrong with this recipe and there is no fresh or frozen fruit you can't use. And as I said earlier, I always use a lot more fruit than the recipe calls for. Huzzah!

Apple Pie Filling
Great! Will definitely make this again the next time my apple trees over-produce, as they did this year. As others did, I made some modifications. I originally started out to do 18 cups, but I had a few apples left over so I ended up with about 22 cups. I used 7 cups of water. I ran out of cornstarch, so I substituted ClearGel, which seemed to work fine. Next time I will cut down on the spices and use less water, maybe 5 cups for 22-24 cups of apple slices, since my homegrown apples are quite juicy. (Spice tip--put in a little cardamom for a fresh taste.)
