Blueberry Crumb Cake

March was the month of big gatherings. M's cousins were visiting from London and we were hosting them for a dinner and late night drinks party. Was a great opportunity to bake something and we didn't let it pass. The family loved this simple cake but with a crumb crispy topping that took it to a whole new level. Delish! Hope the cousins keep coming....


For the crumb
1/2 stick butter
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 tsp cinnamon powder
1/4 cup flour
pinch of salt
1/2 cup roughly chopped Pecans (Optional)

For the cake
35 gms butter (1/4th stick + 1 tbsp)
1 cup all purpose flour
1 egg - small
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
slightly less than 1/2 cup sugar
slightly less than 1/2 cup milk
1 1/4 tsp baking powder
Pinch of salt
1 cup blueberries (we had dried blueberries with us but fresh would go even better and create a more moist cake)


1. Stir flour, baking powder and salt in a bowl.

2. In a separate bowl, mix egg and melted butter. Then combine this with milk.

3. Mix ingredients from both the bowls till totally incorporated.

4. Stir in Blueberries till evenly distributed.

In a bowl, mix all ingredients. Use cold butter and make a coarse mix.
