TWD: Blueberry Crumb Cake



This week, our tasty treat from Dorie is brought to us by SiHan of Fundamentally-Flawed. The main ingredient is one of my favorites – blueberries.


My dear neighbor had wonderful timing – she asked me if I would like anything from Costco this week since she was making her monthly trip. I knew right away that blueberries would be on her list. Sure enough, by late afternoon, I had a large container of fresh blueberries in my refrigerator.



This was an easy recipe with no mishaps to report. The batter was thick and lovely and the blueberries stayed in place. I made the crumb topping by hand, using my pastry blender, and I have to say, it’s my favorite part of the cake. This cake would be the perfect choice for either a breakfast treat or for afternoon tea.



The other Tuesdays with Dorie bakers will have their own take on this recipe, so be sure to stop by for a peek.

Since I have no self control with the blueberries, I have to make another trip to Costco today!

Wish one of my neighbors would go for me!

The berries swirled beautifully in your cake. What a nice neighbor, it would be great to come home to find fresh fruit in the refrigerator.

It almost looks like a blueberry swirl in that tasty looking cake. Very nice.

Beautiful! Lucky you to get cheap fresh blueberries - there're no Costcos around me :(
