Blueberry Crumble Cake

Another recipe from the amazing Jenn Segal. She calls it Blueberry Coffee Cake (aka Boy Bait) but I like to call it Blueberry Crumble Cake.

  • Servings: 12 to 16

  • Total Time: 1 Hour 10 Minutes

INGREDIENTS

FOR THE STREUSEL TOPPING

  • 80 g packed light brown sugar

  • 65 g all-purpose flour, spooned into measuring cup and leveled-off

  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

FOR THE CAKE

  • 250 g all-purpose flour, spooned into measuring cup and leveled-off

  • 2 teaspoons baking powder

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 110 g unsalted butter, softened

  • 120 g granulated sugar

  • 2 large eggs

  • 1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract

  • 1 teaspoon packed lemon zest, from 1 lemon

  • 1/2 cup milk

  • 350 g fresh blueberries (or frozen bluberries but do not defrost)

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Make the streusel topping:

    • Combine the brown sugar, flour, cinnamon, and salt in a small bowl.

    • Using your fingers, mix until no lumps of brown sugar remain.

    • Rub in the butter with your fingertips until it reaches a crumbly state. Refrigerate until ready to use.

  2. Preheat the oven to 190°C and set an oven rack in the middle position.

  3. Grease a 23-cm square pan with butter or nonstick cooking spray.

  4. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder and salt. Set aside.

  5. In the bowl of an electric mixer, beat the butter and granulated sugar until creamy, about 2 minutes.

  6. Add the eggs one at a time

  7. Beat in the vanilla extract and lemon zest.

  8. Gradually add the flour mixture, alternating with the milk, beating on low speed to combine

  9. Add the berries to the batter and fold gently with a spatula until evenly distributed. Do not over-mix.

  10. Transfer the batter to the prepared pan and spread evenly.

  11. Sprinkle the streusel topping evenly over the batter.

  12. Bake for 40 to 45 minutes, until golden brown around the edges and a cake tester comes out clean.

  13. Let cool in the pan on a rack for about 20 minutes, then serve right from the pan.

  14. This cake is best served on the day it is made. Leftovers will keep well for a few days wrapped in foil and stored at room temperature.

  15. Freezer-Friendly Instructions: The cake can be frozen for up to 3 months. After it is completely cooled, double-wrap it securely with aluminum foil or plastic freezer wrap, or place it in heavy-duty freezer bag. Thaw overnight on the countertop before serving.
