This recipe is super easy to make but I will admit that I think I used baking soda instead of baking powder; plus I mixed everything by hand while the baby was napping for fear I’d wake her up by turning the mixer on. It all turned out quite delicious in the end though!

Just a couple of quick notes — the batter will not ‘pour’ like a regular cake batter so be sure to spread it out evenly. Your topping should resemble fine crumbs and using a pastry blender is a great way to make quick work of the task — after it is mixed just sprinkle evenly over the cake.

When you are finished you just have a nice golden top with bubbly blueberries peeking on through. It looks so good it is hard to wait before digging in — so don’t! I dove right in and had my first piece nice and warm.

 So tell us….

What is your favorite way to eat blueberries? Have you ever tried a crumb cake before?
