Laptops and cake

When my husband surprised me on Christmas with a laptop, I clutched it to my chest and selfishly said--"mineallmineallmine." Yes...I did.

Similarily, tonight I made a cake. (mineallmineallmine.)
But I didn't exactly say that.
One child doesn't like blueberries in cake, one child doesn't like bananas, and 3 of them don't like cream cheese frosting. (I know, the horror.)
So conveinent to me to find a recipe with all three of those ingredients in them. (insert evil laugh.)

Oh yes. mineallmineallmine.

Blueberry-Banana Cake

Wet ingredients:
3 egg whites
1/2 cup canola oil
1/4 cup maple syrup
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 cup sour cream
1 ripe banana, mashed

Dry ingredients:
1 cup unbleached white flour
1 cup whole wheat pastry flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt

1 cup blueberries
1 tbsp lemon zest

Add wet ingredients to sifted dry ingredients until combined. Fold in blueberries and lemon zest--do not over mix. Bake in greased 8 inch pan at 350 for 30 minutes.

Let cool and frost with Cream Cheese Frosting.

Come on, now. Can't a mama say "Mine" every now and then?

Ha ha! Very funny. Witty.

I won't try the recipe, cause it's a rollercoaster to disaster! I can't bake ANYTHING!!!

I'm a Christian as well, and would love it if you could tell me what you think of my writings (I want to become a writer...) Thanks!

Cute, Andrea. Enjoy your laptop and your cake. It looks delicious!

mmmmm! Gonna try this TODAY but with home grown saskatoon berries in lieu of blueberries. Looks/sounds delish!

Yes, a mama can indeed say mine every so often, for if she succumbs to insanity, who is left to care for the chickadees?

Love your blog, btw, found it through Nie.
