TWD - Blueberry Crumb Cake


This week's Tuesday with Dorie is hosted by Sihan of Befuddlement. She has chosen the Blueberry Crumb Cake.

What can I say - I am in love:


It's fruity, nutty, buttery and delicious - I loved it from the get go. It was easy to make, and the only thing that I would do next time is to line the bottom of the tin, because all of that fruit makes unmoulding a risky business.
I dedicate my Blueberry Crumb Cake to all the people who are victims of the Black Saturday Bushfires in Victoria. The blueberries that I used were frozen from the early summer, and I felt a pang when I realised that they had come from Kinglake, one of the towns that was razed by the bushfires:

Jules Someone said...

We loved this cake as well. Glad yours turned out!

pinkstripes said...

Yes! This cake was fantastic. A delicious tribute to the victims of the bushfires.

Tammy said...

I loved this cake too. My blueberries sunk to the bottom though - yours look perfectly dispersed!

Megan said...

Lots of blueberry deliciousness! I agree, this was a great pick -

TeaLady said...

That looks fabulous. I am still deciding whether to make this. CAn I make it Low Carb??? Yours looks delicious.

So many people affected by the horrible fires, either there or here in the US. Our hopes that they can get past it all and have a good life.

Liliana said...

Your cake looks delicious! We all loved this cake - I just made it this morning and haven't posted yet but half the cake is gone!

I am so sorry to hear about the fires.

Engineer Baker said...

Yours turned out beautifully! I love all the little pockets of blueberries - yum!

Lorraine @NotQuiteNigella said...

This looks delicious-any cake with fruit is so gorgeous and moist and I love a crumb texture!

SiHaN said...

delightful job.. and great dedication to those who have perished in the fire.

Mermaid Sweets said...

I ADORED this cake and am currently trying to hold back from having another piece. Works great with margarine and soy milk for a diary free option.

Clivia said...

I love that you got a picture of the cake bottom! I could only get mine out of the pan piece by piece.

Leslie said...

Wasn't this one yummy? I think lining the pan is an excellent idea. I want to make this one again when blueberries are in season...I bet it's even better with fresh.

Cathy said...

So glad you loved this; it looks delicious! It is definitely a wonderful cake. So tragic about the fires.

Banjo said...

Yes LOVE is the perfect word.... Beautiful!

Jennifer said...

This was such a yummy cake! Nice job!

chocolatechic said...

Beautiful cake.

I love crumb topping.

mike said...

What a nice (and delicious) tribute! It looks wonderful, down to the last berry! It's definitely a keeper recipe, no? Nicely done!

I cut mine right out of the pan, but I think I might do it a springform next time. That way it could unmold and not lose any of the yummy topping.

Sweet dedication to the fire victims; it's sobering to have a reminder of such as challenging time.

I really enjoyed this one, which was why it needed to be shared. Nice job.

Cakelaw said...

LOL Duckie - wish I could send you some.

Hi Jules, it was a goodie.

Thanks Pinkstripes.

Hi Tammy, just dumb luck I think - a few days later, I baked a pear and chocolate cake and all the bits sank.

Hi Megan, it was!

Hi Tealady, so glad that you decided to make it!

Hi Liliana, I am not surpised - this cake was terrific.

Thanks Caitlin - it was a good one.

Hi Lorraine, the buttery crumb topping really makes this cake.

Thanks for choosing this cake Sihan - it is a keeper for me.

Hi Lorelei, I know what you mean - that is why I take mine in to share with colleagues.

Hi Clivia, it was a little scary unmoulding it - but it survived intact.

It was yummy Leslie. I would love to try it warm with icecream - mmm....

Thanks Cathy - it is indeed a wonderful cake recipe.

Beautiful is just right Banjo.

Thanks Jennifer - I enjoyed this one.

Tanya, I gotta try your super duper crumb topping - it looks good!

It's definitely a keeper Mike - thanks!

Hi Nancy, that may have been a wise move in retrospect - I was worried about the cake splitting around the fruit.

Hi Pamela, I am with you - temptation needs to be shared.

natalia said...

You really made it wonderful ! And I love the chocolate pear one !!

mangomissives said...

Your cake looks wonderful! My co-workers loved this cake...I made mine with mangoes.

Cakelaw said...

Thanks Natalia :)

Hi Mango Missives, the mango version sounds wonderful!
