What do you do when you have leftover blueberries and cantaloupe? My answer would be, make a fruit salad. That sounded like a wonderful idea so I did a search for cantaloupe recipes. Why, I did not search for a cantaloupe fruit salad is beyond me. Cantaloupe recipes brought all kinds of interesting combinations for a variety of different presentations.
The minute, I saw cantaloupe cake, I knew what I was doing. I am sure, this leaves you, scratching your head. Is it just me, or have you heard or eaten a cantaloupe baked good? If not, it is time to try something new.
