good morning, blueberries

I wish there was a place nearby to pick fresh blueberries. I've seen wild strawberries and raspberries, but no blueberries. This morning I decided to make a blueberry coffee cake (with frozen blueberries). It was delicious.

Blueberry Sour Cream Coffee Cake

1 1/2 c. flour
1/2 c. wheat flour
3/4 c. sugar
1 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. baking soda
1 c. reduced-fat sour cream
1 egg
1/4 c. applesauce
3 Tbsp. canola oil
1 tsp. vanilla
1 1/2 c. fresh or frozen blueberries
1/4 c. quick-cooking oats
1/4 c. brown sugar
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
2 Tbsp. cold butter
Combine all the dry ingredients. In another bowl, combine all the remaining ingredients, except the blueberries. Stir wet mixture into dry ingredients until moistened. Fold in blueberries. Pour into a 9 in. square pan coated with cooking spray. Combine the oats, brown sugar, and cinnamon. Cut in butter until crumbly. Sprinkle over the top. Bake at 350 for 45 minutes.
Ever have one of those mornings where nothing really falls into place? It seemed like every ingredient I reached for was empty. The flour canister, the wheat flour canister, and the sugar canister all needed to be filled. Then when I went to make the topping, the brown sugar canister only had a little bit in the bottom. Well, at least now all my canisters are full and ready for the next baking adventure. Too bad the dishes aren't done...
