Roasted Balsamic Blueberries with Olive Oil Cake

You want to know something weird, and most likely not normal at all. I love Mondays. There is something about starting fresh for the week. Waking up, drinking my coffee, planning out my day...week. A new beginning, to make this week better, more productive then the last. Or here's to hoping!

So hello Monday! You are looking glorious so far. And with that I share with you my favorite Olive Oil Cake recipe topped with slow roasted balsamic blueberries. If you have some blueberries to spare, swirl them into your yogurt for breakfast. Or better yet, make a cocktail with them!
