Pecans in June

Oatmeal, Chocolate Chip and Pecan Cookies

I really wanted to bake today. I don’t know whether it was because I was in a slightly contrary mood, since everyone I know is trying to cut back on sweets, or whether I wanted to use finally use pecans in something in other than pecan pie. But I decided to make not one, but two recipes from cooking light that met my qualifications for recipes that were 1) dessert and 2) used pecans.

Blackberry Crumb Cake

Now that it’s basically berry season, I can bake my favorite go to “bbq/party/I have to bring SOMETHING” dessert contribution. It’s a pretty simple recipe, and a pretty good crowd pleaser as well. I baked two cakes for one of the bbq’s my friends throw at our old stomping grounds…and before dinner even came off the grill, one of my three plates of cake was demolished. And seriously, who doesn’t like a good crumb cake?
