The hubby and I were going to a potluck and I was asked to bring deviled eggs and a cake. To me the best deviled egg is a simple deviled egg – mayo, dijon mustard, relish. Of course it helps when you are starting with farm fresh eggs. I was also working with home canned relish so they were pretty good. But there is really nothing special about deviled eggs. It was the cake that was going to be special – I made a blueberry angel food cake.

It was the result of a total experiment. I wanted something more than just a plain angel food cake so I looked to what I had around the yurt and the frozen blueberries caught my eye. I honestly didn’t know if they would stay suspended or all sink to the bottom and make royal mess. I didn’t know if it had been done before. I suppose I could have googled it but I just decided to forge ahead and see what would happen. I’m glad I did because the result was really good.

How Was it?

I have absolutely no clue.

I didn’t get to try it since we took it to a potluck. I did talk to some people who ate a piece of the blueberry angel food cake and they were very enthusiastic about it. A couple asked me for the recipe so that is always a good sign. It was certainly a a pretty cake. I’m looking forward to trying it with raspberries.
