Have you all adjusted to the time change yet? It’s been almost a 2 weeks and I think I am finally feeling on top of things again. It’s amazing how just 1 hour can really have such an impact on you. My husband and I try to get up pretty early every morning and talk a bit before the children get up and start getting ready for school. The first few days of Daylight Savings Time, we would get up and it was sooo quiet. Our kiddos were just so tired. On a normal day, when one person gets up, everyone seems to get up. We took advantage of those few quiet mornings and got to enjoy some coffee together before the day really got started. I enjoyed that time with my husband and so even though everyone is now back to their normal schedules, I’m trying to make room for that quiet morning time before the day begins during the busy work week (even if it’s only 20 minutes) by getting up even earlier. If you don’t have children, maybe you think this sounds a little absurd, but I can assure you, no matter what time of day it is, if all four of our children are up it sounds like a school cafeteria in our house! It’s very nice to start the day off on a quiet note 🙂
This Blackberry Filled Coffee Cake is the perfect sweet treat to share with your loved one(s) over coffee in the morning! Fresh, juicy blackberries are baked in between a moist buttermilk batter and then topped with a delicious buttery, cinnamon crumb topping. You don’t have to limit this to just breakfast though. This berry cake makes a great snack anytime too! This simple coffee cake can be served warm from the oven or at room temperature. If you have any left over cake (we never do 🙂 ) you can always store the individual pieces in the freezer and then pull them out at your convenience. If you’ve got blackberries in your refrigerator, share this tasty cake with someone special this weekend!
