Blueberry Heaven

In an effort to use some of the blueberries I still have I made this. Do yourself and favor, make it too:). You won't regret it.

Blueberry Crumb Cake

You will need:

  • 1/2 stick of unsalted butter (room temp)
  • 1 tbsp additional butter
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 whole egg
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 cups flour
  • 2- 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 3/4 cup whole milk
  • 2 cups fresh blueberries
For the topping
  • 3/4 sticks unsalted butter (cold)
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/4 tsp salt
Heat oven to 350 degrees.

Combine flour, baking powder and salt, set aside.

Cream together 1/2 stick plus 1 tbsp butter and sugar.  

Add egg and mix until combined. Add vanilla and mix. Add flour mixture and milk alternately until totally incorporated. Do not over beat.

Stir in blueberries until evenly distributed. Grease a 9 by 13 inch baking pan. Pour in batter and spread.

In a separate bowl, combine topping ingredients and cut together using two knives or a pastry cutter.

There will be pieces the size of small pebbles.

Sprinkle over the top of the batter and bake at 350 for 40-45 minutes, or until lightly browned and crisp on top.

After you remove it from the oven sprinkle 1 or 2 tbsp of sugar over the top.

I figured I should probably taste it before serving it to company later today so I went ahead and cut a piece and had it with some whipped cream:).

Two minutes later (if that).

This cake was sooooo good. Especially being still warm from the oven. We'll have it with vanilla ice cream after dinner tonight. Can't wait for more!
