Friends, have you thought about making a red, white, and blue breakfast board for the 4th of July? Keep it simple, and make separately from the main dish (like a breakfast casserole), and add fruit to the board. [Today’s the last day of the month, so I’ll be drawing a winner for THE BIG BOARD if you preorder my book. I’ll announce it on my Instagram in the next couple of days!]

Buttermilk Blueberry Cake Board

So it’s a breakfast dessert board. Or, a breakfast fruit board? It’s a food spread, whatever you want to call it :)

Buttermilk Blueberry Cake

This time we made a delicious Buttermilk Blueberry Cake Board. This blueberry cake is also called a breakfast cake. It’s a simple coffee cake recipe that we took from this Best Cherry Buttermilk Cake Recipe, but added blueberries.

We served it on The Big Board (20-inch) alongside a Sausage Breakfast Casserole a few weeks ago to guests, and everyone loved it.

All you need to add is fresh fruit!

Who are you going to invite over for a board? How a breakfast board? Breakfast is easy!

Make new connections

Making new connections has been a priority this summer. When I think back to the people we’ve invited over, some we barely knew, it’s been a real blessing to learn about other people’s lives and really get to know them over a shared meal.

Don’t be afraid to ask your guests to contribute to the meal, so you don’t have to do it all.
