Blueberry Coffee Cake
I was looking for a fruit coffee cake recipe with no sour cream, as I didn't have any handy. This one came up, and I thought I'd try it, but after reading the reviews it was clear they needed more spices. I added vanilla and cinnamon, as well as the allspice. I was using a bundt pan and my homemade canned apple slices, which I lightly mashed so they would layer nicely. After mixing, the batter looked more like biscuit dough, so I added more milk. Not sure if our elevation had something to do with it? We're up very high in Calgary (1084m/3557ft). The result was delicious and disappeared right away. This time I'm making a double batch, as it didn't fill the bundt pan very well, and I'd like to have seconds!

Corn Fritters
I really loved this recipe. I made two batches for my birthday barbecue yesterday. One batch I just doubled the sugar as others suggested, and used chopped apples that I canned two years ago. The apple fritters went over a hit! My second batch I wanted to best of both worlds - hush puppies and corn fritters - so I used a 50/50 blend of cornmeal and flour. I used slightly less than half a cup of cornmeal to half cup of flour, because my research says that 3/4cup of cornmeal substitutes for one cup of flour in recipes, so I eyeballed it. I just used frozen corn, thawed and drained, and the results were a huge success. Can't wait to try a variation with cornmeal, parm, and crab meat!

Big Soft Ginger Cookies
Very good! I'm not sure if I added a little more flour, or it was just the impact of using whole wheat flour instead of processed white flour, but I didn't find the dough sticky at all. The cookies came out of the oven rather puffy, but flattened beautifully on their own as they cooled. This is a very easy recipe, and the results are delicious!
