Gluten-Free Blueberry Coffee Cake

Hello from Kansas! Cheers to writing posts in advance :)

Creating titles are hard, but they are important for SEO and for searching within FFF. In today’s recipe I wanted to express the fact that this is 1. coffee cake 2. the flavor of coffee cake is blueberry 3. gluten-free and 4. single-serve. Doesn’t Single-Serve Gluten-Free Blueberry Coffee Cake just sound like way too much of a mouthful?

I think so!

It was about 3 mouthfuls. I inhaled that thing lit it was my job!

I was actually planning on making a big coffee cake, I even bought a bunt cake pan and everything. Then I accidentally went to Home Goods and accidentally bought these really cute ramekins. That’s how the single serve recipe happened.

    I am still trying to figure out this camera! In-the-kitchen photos are hard because I don’t have a window with natural lighting. I know…I think it should be illegal to build a kitchen without windows!

    Speaking of titles. One of my blogger buds, mentors, and friends, Stephanie Meyer, who writes at Fresh Tart Steph (and many other publications), raised a really important question on her blog today. What do we (food bloggers/writers) do?

    I get that question at least once a day. Lee, what do you do?

    Like Stephanie, there is no single answer that I give. Lately I’ve been using, “I am a recipe creator, blogger, and food photographer,” but I feel like I do so much more than that. FFF is a lifestyle blog that focuses on nourishing recipes that are MOSTLY gluten free. I also talk about other things like fitness, fashioin, life, travel, mental illness, etc. Along with my 1 sentence elevator pitch, usually comes about a 20 minute explanation of what I really do. Then I whip out my phone, show them a recipe and begin to answer about 20 questions that get raised.

    It would sure be nice to have some sort of title that explains what the hell I do, but in some sense I like the fact that it has to come with a 20 minute explanation. It helps me make a connection with that person that I probably wouldn’t have made if I would have just said teacher or doctor.

    So- food bloggers (writers, recipe creators, photographers)…what are your thoughts on this subject?
