It’s nice when your loved one’s birthday is on the weekend, because then you can go all out preparing yummy goodies for them. I started the birthday weekend out by making a blueberry coffee cake with peach coulis, a tofu scramble and espresso.
I used more blueberries than suggested for the coffee cake. For the coulis I used 3 peaches and 3 nectarines. The small nut-like item in the picture is nutmeg, which I grated a small amount using a microplane.
I chose to make the Italian variation of katie’s mad scramble.
East Coast Coffee Cake – Blueberry Variation – Vegan Brunch by Isa Chandra Moskowitz. Rating: Awesome. When I make this recipe again the one thing I will change is using earth balance instead of canola oil so that the topping can melt into the cake. :)
