Bells and whistles can be nice. Brownies loaded with cookies. Cupcakes filled with cream. But sometimes a girl just wants to keep it simple. These Blueberry Almond Plain Cakes, this week's Tuesdays with Dorie recipe, do just that. They are light, fruity, and enough like a blueberry muffin that I for one think it would be totally appropriate to eat one of these babies for breakfast. I replaced some of the all purpose flour with almond flour which made for a sweet and nutty cake, and sprinkled sliced almonds on top halfway through baking for a little crunch.
I also forgot to add the baking powder, which is why my cakes are so flat. (I blame Bentley, as I was watching The Bachelorette while baking. Are you guys watching? That show is growing increasingly insane but I Just. Can't. Look. Away.) Despite my error these were cute and tasty, and would be perfect for an afternoon tea party.
