My boyfriend had some fun time, posing as my hand model, before he could taste the cakes.

Blueberry cakes remind me of my childhood. They were an inseparable element of summer, while visiting favorite bakery with my parents.

W hen you live in a foreign country long enough, you're starting to miss some elements from your origin country. I'm not a big fan of Danish pastries and cakes available in the bakeries, as I find them way too sweet! That was one of the reasons I started baking myself.

Blueberry cakes are one of the things I truly miss about Poland. We use to visit the local bakery, and get a fresh, still warm batch of those delightful cakes before going to the playground when I was a kid. Of course I also enjoyed them later, and especially now, when I can't find them anywhere in Denmark, I feel a little nostalgic.

I had this recipe for a long time, and I thought the weekend would be a great opportunity to try it. The smell that comes out of the oven during baking is just divine! They really taste great, just like from that little local bakery...
