Staging mugs with coffee cake!

 My white clay mugs with satin turquoise lining, nutmeg on lower outside. Set of 4. I'm thinking of selling them for $20 each.

Blueberry Coffee Cake
Source: Fanny Farmer Boston Cooking School Cookbook, recipe revised by me.

 I used all the same ingredients, and added a cup of frozen blueberries at the last, gently mixing them into batter which is quite stiff and spreading it into a round pan (don't have a square one.)

I lowered the temp on cooking to 350 since I was using a pottery dish, and extended the time from 20 to 35 minutes cooking.  It came out jsut fine!


  1. Beautiful mugs and a yummy cake!
    My mother used her Fannie Farmer Cookbook to the falling apart stage. It's one of my treasures.

    1. Ha ha, Suzi! I had a paperback Fannie Farmer, which fell apart years ago. My sons sweetly gave me a hardback for Christmas one year! Yay!


Looking forward to hearing from you! Since I didn't know the 1000+ people who supposedly looked at my blog the other day, I'm back to moderating comments. If that doesn't help, I don't know why blogger doesn't have a filter that stops this hacking...
