Weekends are a great time to relax but we all know they’re also a good time to get things done, and for us that often means doing a little food prep for the week ahead. We like to have a few items ready to go so that everyone can get out of the house both on time and fed. Our blueberry buttermilk breakfast bake is just one of those recipes that we can go to for a weekend brunch or have on deck as a grab-and-go breakfast or snack. Sure, we could whip up a batch of blueberry muffins, but sometimes it’s fun to change up that routine and do something a little different.
Buttermilk is an amazing ingredient to add to baked goods. The acidity of the milk reacts with baking soda, resulting in the production of bubbles. These bubbles bring lighter and fluffier texture to a baked good. Now, on to the good stuff: part of the joy of baking is sharing with those we care about, and this is also a great dish to share, especially as a part of a care package for friends and family. It’s always nice to get something homemade, especially when it’s a meal or treat that you don’t have to cook!
Blueberry muffins meet blueberry pancakes in this super yummy breakfast bake. It’s so easy to fall back on a plain ol’ piece of toast or bowl of cereal in the morning – in fact, it’s probably easier to skip breakfast altogether. We want to make sure everyone gets out of the house with a little something in their tummy to start the day. When there isn’t enough time to whip up bacon and eggs, we can fall back on a slice of our super delicious blueberry bake, along with a glass of milk or a cup of coffee, to help get us up and moving.
