Recipe: Blueberry Boy Bait

Kierin Baldwin's recipe for blueberry boy bait, adapted by the James Beard Foundation

 

It's said that boy bait, a standard-issue, homespun coffee cake, gained its flirty name at a national Pillsbury baking contest, where teenage boys found the treat to be impossible to resist. At the Dutch in New York City, pastry chef Kierin Baldwin soups up her boy bait with blueberries: some are folded into the batter, while the rest are scattered on top before baking. Coupled with a scoop of ice cream or a mug of coffee, it's sure to lure in everyone.

Recipe: Blueberry Kuchen

Blueberry kuchen If you hail from the Midwest, you may have heard of kuchen: it's the German word for cake. These crumbly and streusel-topped treats were imported to the Dakotas, Minnesota, Wisconsin, and other states in the region by German immigrants. This kuchen recipe from chef Jeffrey A. Savage of On the Marsh Bistro is made with almond flour and juicy blueberries. If you want to make it extra special, spin up a batch of his Grand Marnier–blueberry ice cream to go on top.

Recipe: Lime Flan Parfait with Blueberries and Watermelon Granita

Heather Rodriguez-Carlucci's Lime Flan Parfait with Blueberries and Watermelon GranitaPrint’s Heather Rodriguez-Carlucci whipped up this triple-decker dessert at Chefs & Champagne, but the preparation is also doable at home. The flan gets some zing from lime curd, which is made by combining beaten eggs with sugar and the highly acidic fruit juice. The granita, a frozen Italian treat with coarse ice crystals, can (and should) bypass the ice cream churner: just place a shallow container of fruit syrup in the freezer and use a fork to periodically rake up ice as it forms. (The pros call this still freezing.)
