buckwheat and blueberry cake

My grandmother made me eat a lot of kasha when I was growing up, so buckwheat
is something that I have come to love. The flavor is quite potent in this cake,
so if you are not a buckwheat fan you probably want nothing to do with this. This
is great for breakfast!

I got the recipe from Orangette and
made a few subs - I used whole wheat pastry flour instead of the all-purpose flour, used 1/2 cup of turbinado sugar instead of the 3/4 cup of light brown sugar and added three dried slices of navel oranges (Trader Joes sells this - I have never seen it anywhere else before), which I think was key. The orange slices made the cake slightly sweet and fruity, but the orange wasn't overpowering. If you can't find dried orange slices, I'd up the orange zest to the zest from one whole orange. Some nuts would probably also be a nice addition - maybe pecans or walnuts.

Buckwheat and blueberry cake:
1 cup buckwheat flour
1 cup whole wheat pastry flour
1/4 cup light brown sugar
1/2 tsp kosher salt
4 tsp baking powder
3 slices dried orange, chopped
2 large eggs
2 cups buttermilk
6 Tbs unsalted butter, melted and cooled
1/4 cup honey
1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
1 cup fresh blueberries

For the baking instructions just go to the Orangette link above. I don't have a bundt
pan so I used a large springform pan instead. The cake is excellent but is not a light cake, and is really great toasted with some butter.

Generic Viagra (sildenafil citrate; brand names include: Aphrodil / Edegra / Erasmo / Penegra / Revatio / Supra / Zwagra) is an effective treatment for erectile dysfunction regardless of the cause or duration of the problem or the age of the patient.
Sildenafil Citrate is the active ingredient used to treat erectile dysfunction (impotence) in men. It can help men who have erectile dysfunction get and sustain an erection when they are sexually excited.
Generic Viagra is manufactured in accordance with World Health Organization standards and guidelines (WHO-GMP). Also you can find on our sites.
Generic Viagra is made with thorough reverse engineering for the sildenafil citrate molecule - a totally different process of making sildenafil and its reaction. That is why it takes effect in 15 minutes compared to other drugs which take 30-40 minutes to take effect.
Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
