Blueberry Crumb Cake


If you haven't noticed, I haven't been baking much lately. A lot has been going on that has kept me out of the kitchen. However, in what I have had for free time, I have been looking through my CL Annual Recipes cookbook for 1999. Which is where my Longevity Noodles came from (yum - I will be making them again).


This morning since I was up early again, I decided to go ahead an make the Blueberry Crumb Cake recipe I had tabbed and had been thinking about making the last few days. The house smells wonderful this morning and my co-workers are going to be nicely surprised on this Friday morning. :o)



Blueberry Crumb Cake

Cooking Light Annual Recipes, 1999, page 30

Cooking Spray
2/3 cup sugar
1/4 cup stick butter, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 large egg
1-1/3 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/8 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup lowfat buttermilk
1 cup blueberries
3 tablespoons sugar
3 tablespoons flour
1 tablespoon butter, melted
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Preheat oven to 350.

Coat a 9-inch round cake pan with cooking spray. Line bottom with wax paper, and coat wax paper with cooking spray.

Beat 2/3 cup sugar and 1/4 cup butter at medium speed of a mixer until blended (about 5 minutes). Add vanilla and egg; beat well. Lightly spoon 1-1/3 cups flour into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Comgine flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Add flour mixture to creamed mixture alternately with buttermilk, beginning and ending with flour mixture. Stir in blueberries.

Pour into prepared pan. Combine 3 tablespoons sugar and remaining ingredients in a bowl; stir until mixture resembles coarse meal. Sprinkle sugar mixture over batter. Bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack.

This cake is heanvenly looking. I am looking forward to summer berries again. Crumb cake has to be on of the best types of cake and so fancy but so simple too. The noodles with shrimp looks delish and I have been craving shrimp! Will try soon.

Yum! This looks so delicious. I just bought a huge package of blueberries, and I've been looking for a tried-and-true recipe like this one. Even my picky boyfriend just leaned over my should and told me that "That looks good. Youl should make that." Huge kudos to you for evoking those compliments from him--and of course, as usual, I think your treats look delicious!

Does this ever look gorgeous!! I love blueberry coffee cake. I have got to try this. I want one right now with my coffe, not a whole one, just a slice, please??

I plan to make this today! I just bought blueberries yesterday and made pancakes with them. I was wondering what to do with the rest of them! Thanks!

Also, did you try putting the blueberries in flour so that they don't settle to the bottom? I don't it really matters because your cake look perfect as is!

Oh yummy! I love Blueberries, whether it's in Muffins or Cake. This looks mouth-wateringly good. Not good for the diet of course, but who cares if it tastes as good as it looks. You have to treat yourself sometimes.
