As one who loves to spend a lot of time in the kitchen, I have come to realize that high quality kitchen utensils are a must for any cook/baker. My first few sets of measuring cups were made from plastic. I found that the handles would snap off, sometimes cracks would go through the cups, or the painted on numbers would gradually fade over time, making it difficult to see what the size of the cups were. I finally ended up buying a set of metal measuring cups, and saw this is what I should have bought from the beginning. And since I bake so much, having more than one set is a must for me, and KitchenMade Stainless Steel Measuring Cups are a staple in my every day food prep.
Since they are engraved, I can be confident that I will never have to guess which measuring cup size I am using, unlike my old measuring cups that had the paint wear off.
The KitchenMade measuring cups are made from stainless steel, so they are durable, and crafted into one piece, so you can be sure the handles will never snap off. They are dishwasher safe, which makes cleaning a breeze. They will not bend or rust, and are FDA approved.
Since blueberries are in season, I just used these measuring cups this weekend to make my family a delicious blueberry buckle.
1/4 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup sugar
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup milk
2 cups fresh blueberries
2/3 cup sugar
1/2 cup all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/3 cup cold butter, cubed
In a small bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in egg. Combine the flour, baking powder and salt. Add to creamed mixture, alternating with the milk, beating well after each addition. Fold in blueberries. Pour into a greased 9 inch baking pan.
Make the topping- In a small bowl, combine the sugar, flour and cinnamon. Use a fork or pasty cutter to cut in butter until crumbly. Sprinkle over the lueberry mixture.
Bake at 375 degrees for 30 to 40 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
Let cool for 20 minutes. Serve.
