Yes! I went to Hidden Springs Orchard in Cookeville with a couple of new friends, and it was a lovely time despite the heat. The blueberry patch is indeed hidden, tucked down a dirt road deep in a holler (er, hollow?) in Jackson County. And what could be better than gathering blueberries with friends? Very little, except perhaps:
Fresh-baked blueberry buttermilk coffee cake! With lemon zest crumb topping. I've been on a bit of a baking tear since settling into my new kitchen, and am freezing about half of what I bake to get me through my first semester of college. This recipe yields one 9" cake (which I baked in an 8" dish so it turned out very tall), of which I froze half.
So here you go! Recipe after the jump. If you use this recipe, I would love to hear (or see) how it turns out.
