DO I USE FRESH OR FROZEN BERRIES?

We always use fresh berries whenever possible but frozen would work also if that’s all you have. If using frozen make sure you defrost and thaw them.

We place them in a strainer in the sink then on paper towels to make sure they are dried well. You want them as dry as possible to keep the cake from becoming to wet.

CAN I USE OTHER BERRIES IN THIS MUFFIN CAKE?

You sure can. Raspberries are great in this cake. As are chopped strawberries or a mixture or all three. Any berry you like would work well.

ALWAYS TOSS YOUR BLUEBERRIES IN FLOUR FIRST

Whenever you’re baking a cake with pieces of fruit, you’ll always want to coat your fruit in flour first. Did you ever bake a cake with fruit and all the fruit ended up on he bottom? It’s because you didn’t coat the fruit with flour first.

Doing this will keep your fruit from sinking to the bottom. The flour helps to dry the berries a little. It keep the blueberries in this recipe so they’re evenly distributed and the cake won’t have a soggy bottom!

BESIDES THE CRUMBLE TOPPING WHAT ELSE CAN I ADD TO THE TOPPING?

We think this cake is perfect as is with it’s crumble topping and little bit of glaze. But if your serving it for a dessert you can always add a dollop of fresh whipped cream and some extra blueberries on the side.

Ingredients

FOR THE CAKE

  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup butter – softened
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1 egg
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 1/2 cups fresh blueberries more if you want to serve the cake with a few blueberries on the side washed and drained on paper towels

FOR THE CRUMBLE

  • 1 cup butter – melted
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons flour
  • 1 Tablespoon cinnamon

FOR THE GLAZE

  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 teaspoons milk

Instructions

  • In the mixing bowl of a stand mixer, add the softened butter, milk, egg, and sugar, and blend with the whisk attachment until smooth and creamy.
  • In a separate bowl, blend the flour, baking powder and salt, until well mixed. Add to the mixer, and blend until smooth and creamy.
  • Remove the mixing bowl from the mixer. Sprinkle a little flour over the blueberries, and toss to coat (this keeps the blueberries from sinking to the bottom of the cake while baking).
  • Line a 9 X 9 inch dish with parchment paper, and pour the cake batter into the dish. Mix the Crumble Topping – melted butter, sugar, flour and cinnamon in a bowl, and sprinkle on top of the cake batter.
  • Bake at 350 for 35 to 40 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. When the cake is done baking, remove from the oven to a wire rack to cool.
  • When cake has completely cooled, make the glaze; in a medium size bowl add the powdered sugar, vanilla, and milk, and blend until smooth and creamy. Generously drizzle glaze over the cake, while cake is still in the dish, using all the glaze.
  • When ready to serve, cut the cake in 2 X 3 inch squares, sprinkle a few blueberries on the side, and serve. Enjoy!
