A few days ago, while loitering about the school, a staff member whose name I didn’t get asked me if I was the woman who won the Bake-Off a few years back. “That was me.” I told her. “Great!” She said. “Because now you can tell me the name of that dessert you brought to Teacher Appreciation last year.” Then she went on to describe it.
S: It was a cake with blueberries and pudding…the cake was very light.
Me: (thinks for a second) Are you sure it was something I brought? It doesn’t ring a bell
S: Well, I asked who brought it and was told it was you. It was so good…almost like a Boston Cream Pie but…
Me: Did it have a glaze?
S: No, it didn’t need one….it had this pudding. It was light like a sponge cake.
Me: But with blueberries in it?
S: Yes, blueberries. Definitely.
Now I’m baffled. I searched my own blog for past teacher appreciation goodies, and the only thing I could come up with was blueberry oatmeal bars. I’m thinking maybe this nice lady asked who made the blueberry dessert and someone mistakenly thought she meant my oatmeal blueberry bars….which are in no way like pudding or light cake.
Whatever it is she was describing sounds so good! Any ideas as to what it could be? I’m impressed that someone found this dessert memorable enough to enquire about a year later.
