The last time I went to Trader Joe's, I bought a new (to me) product, and then it sat in my pantry. I finally tried it out last weekend. It's Trader Joe's Multigrain Baking and Pancake Mix. I love multigrain pancakes, but I never make pancakes. That poor box just sat waiting for me to make pancakes, and it wsn't happening. Sunday afternoon, I picked up the box and read the recipes on the side. I decided to make one, and it was awesome. I'll give you the original recipe, and what I substituted if I didn't have the ingredient.
Blueberry Coffee Cake
1) 1 egg
2) 1 cup buttermilk (I didn't have buttermilk. Put 1 T lemon juice in measuring cup and add milk to equal 1 cup)
3) 3 T oil
4) 2 1/2 c Multigrain baking mix
5) 1/2 c sugar
6) 1 1/2 c fresh or frozen blueberries (I used unsweetened frozen berries - a mix of strawberries, raspberries, blackberries, and blueberries.)
In a large bowl, whisk together egg, buttermilk, and oil. Stir in baking mix and sugar, just until moistened. Fold in blueberries. Spread batter into an 8"x8"x2" pan coated with cooking spray. Bake 45-50 minutes (it was more like 1 1/2 hours) in preheated 350 oven, or until top is golden brown and a wooden toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Let cool in pan 10 minutes. Cut into squares, and serve warm.
This was amazing when it was warm, and good when it cooled off. I recommend you eat the entire thing right away! I plan to play around some more with this baking mix. It definitely has potential.
