Blueberry Crumb Cake
Ina Garten's Blueberry Crumb Cake

Blueberry Crumb Cake

Did I tell you how much I love my new DVR?! I'm taping Ina Garten's Barefoot Contessa each day...and recently she made a Blueberry Crumb Cake! My co-worker and I love Ina. We want to move in with her, eat her food, and have jazzy music accompany us.

I don't have any photos of the "making of..." as my camera batteries were charging last night. Although this is a lovely breakfast food, it cooks for an hour so I wasn't going to get up that early.

Blueberry Crumb Cake
The reviews on the Food Network website said the cake takes longer than 40-50 minutes to cook, and that some cakes rose higher than the 9" cake pan. So, I decided to make mine in a 9" springform (they usually have 3" sides), and I didn't want to attempt to get the cake out of a regular pan with all that topping. My cake ended up cooking for 63 minutes. But it was worth it!

The streusel topping is lovely - just enough crunch and butter!

I used fresh Chilean blueberries. I folded in 3/4 of the blueberries in the batter, and threw the rest on top of the batter before topping with the streusel - insuring that all the fruit wouldn't fall to the bottom.
Pin It!

Once again very yummy and good for a morning meeting snack when dealing with figuring out the convoluted details of search in a new ILS :-)

Hi Mary,
I can not convey to you just how gorgeous your Blueberry Crumb Cake looks. If I finish my post for tomorrow early enough, I just may be baking one for myself!!!

Thanks again for sharing...
