Peach and Blueberry Yogurt Cake

September 4, 2015

blueberrycake (1 of 1)Now that the weather has turned a bit chillier, I find that I am much hungrier in the morning, and what better way to start the day than with some cake!  I like to think of this cake as a breakfast cake, because it has lots of fresh fruit, natural yogurt, and not too much sugar. It’s the perfect cake to enjoy with a morning tea or coffee. As it’s the end of the summer, I am gorging on the last fruits of the season. We still have a few blueberries left in the garden, and I was able to get some late season peaches from the market. I love the combination of blueberries and juicy peaches, and cardamom is one of those flavors I can never get enough of. As this cake is made with yogurt, it’s very moist, and best eaten within a day or two of it being made, which shouldn’t be a problem. You could also make this cake into muffins, for a more portable breakfast to bring to work.
