Pineapple Sage Advice

 It finally bloomed!  The wait for my Pineapple Sage Pound Cake is over.  I didn't think it would be the end of October until they blossomed out, I thought it would be more like the end of September.  

Pineapple Sage is used for all kinds of things, delicious things.  It is good to brew as a tea, I have dried some for that purpose.  It is good in poultry dishes, pestos, flavourings for lemonade, smoothies and etc.  Plenty of uses!

Pineapple Sage Pound Cake

1 c. butter
1/2 c. granulated sugar
1/2 c. brown sugar
5 eggs
5 tbsps, leaves and blossoms of pineapple sage
1 tsp. vanilla
1 tsp. baking powder
2 c. flour

1/4 . c sugar seperately.

Preheat oven to 325 deg. Grease and flour a loaf pan.  Then, sugar it with 1/4 c. additional sugar.

Place some small tender leaves and blossoms in the pan as pictured.

Prepare the batter and pour into the pan in blobs, such that the leaves and blossoms aren't displaced. spread to flatten on top.

Bake for approximately 55 minutes.
