This week I chose to share the recipe for Amish Blueberry Cake because it demonstrates one of the keys to Amish baking and cooking: simplicity. The Amish use simple and accessible ingredients in their food. Amish blueberry cake is no exception. Everything an Amish cook needs for the recipe can be found in her kitchen with the addition of seasonal fresh blueberries picked from her garden or received from a neighbor. Make this recipe for your family, and you are sure to have a treat that both children and adults will just plain love. Enjoy!

FEATURED BOOK OF THE WEEK

Everyone in Harvest, Ohio has gathered at the town gazebo—decked out in lemon-themed décor to add some of Emily’s favorite flavor to the festivities—including Juliet Brook, Jethro the Pig, and in a last-minute invite, Emily’s sister Esther Esh.

Later that evening, the woman reappears—dead in Esh Family Pretzels, with a threatening letter written by Esther found on her body.
