Colorado Blueberry Coffeecake by Lynn Cahoon

I’m sure you could substitute huckleberries for the blueberries in this recipe if you live in an area where they are available.

1/2 cup butter
1 cup sugar

**Cream together until smooth. This is easier if the butter is soft.

Add to butter mixture-

3 lightly beaten eggs
1/2 tsp vanilla

Mix in –

2 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt

Add – then stir until smooth –

3/4 cup applesauce
1/4 cup milk
Lastly add two cups of fresh or frozen blueberries.

Pour into a 8-9 inch baking pan.

Mix together the following –

1/4 cup softened butter
1 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup flour

This should be a crumble texture. Spread over the top of your mix without stirring. Pop into a hot 350 degree oven and bake for 60 minutes or until a tooth pick stuck in the center comes back clean.


A new series from the author of the Tourist Trap Mysteries!

Former English professor Cat Latimer is back in Colorado, hosting writers’ retreats in the big blue Victorian she’s inherited, much to her surprise, from none other than her carousing ex-husband! Now it’s an authors’ getaway—but Cat won’t let anyone get away with murder…

The bed-and-breakfast is open for business, and bestselling author Tom Cook is among its first guests. Cat doesn’t know why he came all the way from New York, but she’s glad to have him among the quirkier—and far less famous—attendees.

Cat’s high school sweetheart Seth, who’s fixing up the weathered home, brings on mixed emotions for Cat…some of them a little overpowering. But it’s her uncle, the local police chief, whom she’ll call for help when there’s a surprise ending for Tom Cook in his cozy guest room. Will a killer have the last word on the new life Cat has barely begun?
