Blueberry Vanilla Coffee Cake Recipe (Serves 4–6):

Ingredients:

  • a single huge egg
  • 1/3 gallon of whole milk
  • a third cup of vegetable oil
  • a teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup sugar, granulated
  • 1 1/2 cups flour (all-purpose)
  • a half teaspoon of salt
  • 2 teaspoons of baking powder
  • 1 cup blueberries, fresh
  • 2 tsp. all-purpose flour extra for dredging

Method:

Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Set aside a normal loaf pan that has been greased and floured. All of the wet ingredients should be mixed in a large mixing bowl.

Stir in the dry ingredients slowly, so as not to over-mix the batter. Wash the blueberries and lightly sprinkle them with flour before gently folding them into the batter. Bake for 35 minutes after pouring into the prepared pan.

Allow at least 15 minutes for the cake to cool before loosening the sides with a butter knife and sliding it out onto a serving dish.

Variations:

In this recipe, you can use skim milk, plant-based milk, or even evaporated milk. However, don’t skip the vegetable oil; it’s what keeps the cake moist.

A teaspoon of lemon zest would give this dish a bright, happy finish. Before adding the dry flour mixture, stir it into the wet components.

To make a light glaze, mix powdered sugar with warm water (or lemon juice) until it’s just liquid enough. Before slicing, brush it on and wait for it to harden.

To keep the berries from sinking to the bottom of the cake, toss them with flour. This is an important step that you should not skip!

Recipe: Savory Sausage Gravy

This milk-based gravy speckled with crumbled sausage is a crowd-pleaser on any Southern breakfast table. Sure, it’s the most simple thing on your plate, but this homemade gravy will make your taste senses sing.

The nicest aspect about this recipe is that you can make it with only a few ingredients and customise it to your preferences. Remember this simple method the next time you crave southern biscuits and gravy. Let’s get this party started!


Ingredients: Savory Sausage Gravy (serves 6) Recipe:

  • 1 pound bulk pork sausage, uncooked
  • 2 tablespoons salted butter
  • 1/4 cup flour (all-purpose)
  • 2 quarts of whole milk
  • a quarter teaspoon of garlic powder (optional)
  • 1/8 teaspoon adobo sauce (or seasoned salt)
  • Season with salt and black pepper to taste.
  • Biscuits, 6


Method:

Cook the sausage in a cast-iron skillet or other heavy-bottomed pan over medium heat, breaking it up with a spatula. Drain all except 2 tablespoons of the drippings after removing the meat from the skillet and setting it aside.
Reduce to a low heat setting and add the butter to the skillet. Cook for two minutes, or until the butter has lightened in colour. Stir the flour into the pan until it is completely incorporated. Cook for three minutes with the flour mixture—do not omit this step! Slowly pour in the milk in portions, stirring constantly to avoid lumps.
Allow the gravy to thicken for three minutes before folding in the cooked sausage. Season with garlic powder, adobo, salt, and pepper at this point. If in doubt, go easy on the salt; the sausage is salty as well, and you don’t want to overdo it.
Serve the gravy on top of a warm, split biscuit. You can keep leftovers in the refrigerator for a few days. When you reheat it, just add a bit extra milk to thin it out.

Variations:

You may use any kind of sausage for this as long as it breaks up readily when cooked. This is the key flavouring for the gravy, so get whatever you like, even if it’s incredibly hot.
Do you require lactose-free milk? That’s not an issue! The thickening effect of the cooked flour roux will still be there, resulting in a silky sauce.
Purists will laugh at the use of browned butter, but it does give the finished product a rich, nutty flavour. The addition of extra spices is also a departure from a more traditional recipe.
If the spice is too strong, add more milk and cook the gravy for a few minutes longer. Don’t even try to add extra flour because it’s too late.
Give this savoury sausage gravy a try the next time you want some comfort food and need to feed a crowd. For a complete meal, add fresh fruit, scrambled eggs, and steaming coffee. You will not be disappointed!
