Day 272: Blueberry Sausage Cake

Today I have a breakfast recipe.  For some reason, breakfast recipes seem harder to find.  Its probably because mornings are busy and there never seems to be enough time to make anything good!  That's my reasoning for not trying this recipe sooner.  We finally decided to have "Brinner" (breakfast for dinner) just so I could try this recipe.  I got this from Randy Goodman.  He says this dish is one of the most requested meals at a bed and breakfast run by his relatives.

Blueberry Sausage Cake
12" dutch oven

2 cups flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 cup butter
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
2 eggs
8 oz. sour cream
1 lb. pork sausage, cooked and well drained
1 cup blueberries
1/2 cup chopped pecans

In a medium mixing bowl, stir together flour, baking soda and baking powder; set aside.  In a large mixing bowl, cream the butter and sugars.  Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition.  Add the flour mixture and sour cream, beating until combined.  Fold in the sausage and berries.
Pour the batter into a greased dutch oven.  Sprinkle nuts on top.  Bake at 350° for 35-40 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.  Use 1 1/2 rings on top and 1 ring on the bottom.  Serve warm with blueberry sauce (recipe below).  Serves 12-15.

Blueberry Sauce

1/2 cup sugar
2 Tbs. cornstarch
1/2 cup water
2 cups fresh or frozen blueberries
1/2 tsp. lemon juice

In a medium sauce pan, combine the sugar and cornstarch.  Add the water and blueberries.  Cook and stir over medium heat until thickened and bubbly.  Cook and stir 2 minutes more.  Stir in lemon juice.  Cool slightly.  Makes 2 cups sauce.

The Finished Product

The Review

This was SERIOUSLY good!  The combination of sausage and blueberries may sound weird, but it is delicious!  I ate way more of this than I should have.  The 9 of us ate all but 2 pieces.  We had this with scrambled eggs and it was a hearty meal.  This is a perfect Sunday breakfast, and it would be awesome to wake up to this when you're camping.  We ran out of sauce, so you'll want to double it for sure.  This gets an A.
