Blueberry/Peach Pound Cake on Yellow and Blue Chintz

My family really likes blueberry/peach cobbler, so when I saw a photo and recipe for blueberry/peach pound cake at this website recently, I immediately printed it and bought the ingredients to make it.

I was also eager to set a tablescape using the yellow and blue/gray chintz dishes I received for Christmas.

What could be better than a slice of delicious pound cake, a cup of comforting peach/apricot tea, and cheery chintz dishes to remind me spring is on the way?

  1. Yum, your tea and cake look especially delicious on the pretty plates.

  2. Thanks so much for the recipe! We love blueberries in anything, but haven't tried it with peach. Looks yummy! Your cheerful chintz dishes are marvelous! Thanks so much for linking to Tuesday Cuppa Tea!

  3. Thank you for the recipe. It looks delicious. Your chintz dishes are lovely. Happy Tea Day!

  4. Just beautiful, beautiful, beautiful! I love your chintz dishes!!!

    I once saw a tablesetting in a magazine that inspired me. They used blue and white transferware china set on a yellow toile tablecloth. It was stunning! Your china reminds me of that picture! I've looked and looked for a yellow toile print to make a tablecloth. I cannot find it (although a year before I had purchased some that I gave to a friend). I guess it gives me something to "look for' now.

  5. Your dishes are fabulous, Phyllis! The cobbler looks very good too.

  6. I don't think I've ever heard of combining peaches and blueberries in a cake, but I like the idea--and how perfect to inaugurate your pretty new dishes!

  7. Your blue and yellow china is beautiful! Your cake looks delicious!
    Have a wonderful week!

  8. I have never seen the combination of blueberries and peaches in a pound cake, but I love peaches, blueberries, and pound cake so this must be a winner!

  9. Your cake looks delicious, Phyllis. And I love your china! I saw that exact pattern at HomeSense when we were in Vancouver visiting my son at Christmas time, only it was gray and cream and another set was blue and cream. They were gorgeous and I so wanted to buy a few pieces but had no way of getting them back home. Love the yellow! Thank you for sharing and coming to tea.


  10. The cake looks and sounds totally delicious!
    Love the china, my favorite color of yellow. How very pretty!
