Mini Blueberry Crisps. I’m on my way to Victoria, British Columbia tomorrow for my uncle’s wedding, so I won’t be updating on Friday.

Mini Blueberry Crisps

I feel like I just unpacked my suitcase from Comic-Con! Next week I will be back to my usual schedule, so stick it out with me! I’m really excited to go to Canada, though. My mom is Canadian and my uncle and my grandmother still live up there. It’s like the secret utopia of the world! I love blueberries, as you can see! Your ingredients. Combine the oats, brown sugar, cinnamon, and flour in a medium bowl.

Once everything is combined well, add in the melted butter and mix. Spray your muffin pans with some Pam and press 1/4 cup of the crust mixture into the cups, pushing it up a bit on the sides. After the crusts have baked, place 6-8 blueberries into each cup. Then top them off with the remaining oats mixture. Bake at 350 degrees F for about 15 minutes, until slightly browned. Enjoy!

I made these for the Seattle Bake Sale for Share Our Strength organized by Frantic Foodie (thanks Keren!).

not martha ? to make: cobbler baked in jars

I had so much fun making pies in jars that I figured this was the perfect opportunity to bake something else in jars. This time I used half-pint wide mouth jars, a nice size for a bake sale. (Half pint jars washed and drying.) I used the blueberry cobbler recipe from Baking Illustrated. I was making 24 portions so the first time I tried to divide each recipe between 8 jars (making three total recipes worth).

(Look! These are great for bake sales because the packing is an eye catcher. The recipe, with notes on actually making it in jars, is below. Seriously, the cornmeal added to the biscuit batter makes all the difference here. I call this mise en jars, I used the washed jars from the overflowing and sticky (but sooo worth it) test batch. The scent of these baked goods right here is amazing. On the back of the label I listed things one might do with the leftover jar. 1. 2. 3.

Cakespy: Behemoth Crumb Cake. Jessie Oleson (aka Cakespy) drops by every Monday to share a delicious dessert recipe.

Cakespy: Behemoth Crumb Cake

—The Mgmt. [Original artwork and photographs: Jessie Oleson] When it comes to crumb, I have a theory: if some is good, more is better. This theory was proven when I discovered something called the Colossal Crumb Cake at New Jersey's Ocean Grove Bake Shoppe. Their version had a ratio of roughly 9 parts crumb to 1 part cake, and it was just as amazing as it sounds (theirs is the one pictured above). Could it be possible to recreate this magic at home? Turns out, halving the cake recipe wasn't necessary—using the full recipe worked just fine, as the weight of the crumb crushed it into a sliver of buttery submission.
