Not much new to look at here... The scones were the recipe I normally use from Clementine, and the coffee cake was my favorite recipe from the Land O' Lakes booklet I picked up at the grocery store checkout stand a decade ago (it's a very moist and bright white cake with milk and cream cheese in the batter, with a topping of butter, flour, brown sugar and cinnamon). I made the coffee cake with fresh blueberries, and I planned to make strawberry scones. However, Trader Joe's appears to have stopped carrying dried strawberries, so I used a bag of dried mixed berries (cherries, blueberries, strawberries) for the scones instead.
Tom spotted a child at the brunch eating the crumble topping off of a piece of coffee cake. I wonder if he's the same person who licked the chocolate frosting from the top of a cupcake and left the stump on the serving tray?
Congratulations Karen and Alberto!
