in the kitchen with: susan schwake’s blueberry cake – Design*Sponge

This week’s recipe for a Blueberry Cake comes from Susan Schwake of artstream studios in Rochester, New Hampshire.  I like to tease Susan about living in a little cabin in the big woods and about getting all of her provisions from Nelly’s general store. (Those of you who ever read the book or watched Little House on the Prairie will get the joke.)  It was fitting therefore to get a great homemade cake recipe from Susan, who got this from a family friend and has been making it for years.  Though I tried to negotiate with Susan for us to put a streusel top on it, she was adamant that the simple sugar top stay because it is light and crunchy– something I’d never experienced before.  Even refrigerated, it stays crunchy!!  In the spirit of full disclosure, when googling the recipe, I found a reference to this cake being from Marjorie Standish cookbook “Cooking Downeast” however there are many more entries which list an entirely different recipe.  So while Susan did receive this from a friend, the exact origin is unclear.  It’s still really good, and perfect with coffee!!  –Kristina
