Midnight Blueberry Yogurt Cake!

Once again I delved into the realm of desserts after I spied this recipe over at the OhBiteIt blog. Please go check out OhBiteIt - many many fantastic recipes with great photos!
Of course, the recipe was tweaked with the addition of some Tango Spice. Just can’t leave a great recipe alone. Also, seeing that our Midnight Espresso goes so gosh darn good with any meal of the day, be it breakfast, lunch or dinner we use it here agin for dessert.
Here is what I call Midnight Blueberry Yogurt Cake.

This is what I used:
Krusteaz Wild Blueberry Muffin Mix
1 Chobani Blueberry Greek Yogurt
1 1/2 Cup Bran Flakes
Tango Spice Midnight Espresso
8 X 8 Glass Baking Dish - coated with cooking spray

Here is how it all went down:
Mix the muffin batter using the box directions
Stir the yogurt into the batter
Fold in one cup of the bran flakes
Pour the batter into the prepared dish
Sprinkle on a nice coating of Midnight Espresso - as you like it
Top with the remaining 1/2 cup of bran flakes

Baked this in the over for 36 minutes, your time may vary.
The aroma of this cake is simply amazing, blueberry & cake with the Midnight Espresso - Oh Yes!

So, please give this recipe a try, adding your own special twist to it if you wish to.
Next time I make this I will probably trade out the bran flakes for Honey Bunches of Oats - just because!

Also, please go visit OhBiteIt - you are guaranteed to find great recipes you will not be able to resist.
As Always, Thank You For Reading!

Over the Thanksgiving Holiday food experimentation was the name of the game. New sides were tried out and here is one that we have prepared twice since.
Check out these ingredients and then bake yourself one of these!

Midnight Cranberry Cornbread

Dig In!

What You Will Need
8X8 Glass Pan - buttered or sprayed
One Box Cornbread Mix - I used Krusteaz Honey Cornbread
One Cup Jellied Cranberry Sauce - mooshed up
Tango Spice Midnight Espresso - As much as you like

The Directions
Mix up the corn bread according to the box directions.
Pour the batter into the prepared pan
Sprinkle Midnight Espresso on the top of the batter, using as much as you would like.
Put the cranberry sauce in a piping bag or ziploc bag with a small portion of the corner cut off.
Use this to ‘pipe’ the cranberry sauce across the entire top of the cornbread.
Take a fork and press some parts of the cranberry sauce into the cornbread.
Place the pan in a 350 degree oven and bake for 20 minutes or so, until the top golden and the cranberry sauce is bubbly.
Allow to cool slightly, slice and enjoy.

This also re-heats nicely.
