Tuesdays With Dorie--Blueberry Crumb Cake


I finally did it--joined a blogging/baking group. I have been a follower of TWD for a year, I love the cookbook and the awesome bloggers that bring this book to life each Tuesday. So todays recipe was chosen by Sihan check her blog for details. This Blueberry Crumb Cake was delicious! I love blueberries and have numerous recipes that include this delicious berry. But I think this recipe 'takes the cake' or crumb cake for that matter. It was everything that Miss Dorie promised. I wanted to share this treat so I made 16 crumb cake muffins. I tried some with shiny foil liners and some in my greased stoneware muffin pans. Both were yummy and perfect for sharing.


I used frozen berries--fresh are still pricey and a bit wilted in our neighborhood. Frozen berries worked great. I tossed the frozen berries with flour just before adding them to my batter. This prevents the berries from sinking. Mixing frozen berries also keeps the 'blue streaking' to a minimum. This recipe is my new 'go to' blueberry treat!

Hey Cindy! Welcome to TWD! Woo hoo!

I am loving your blueberry muffins.

I actually made another crumb cake to make up for the disastrous blueberry crumb cake project. Check it out and share your thoughts.

Keep on baking and thanks for stopping by my blog! :)
