{TWD} Blueberry Crumb Cake

Do you remember the Seinfeld episode where Elaine discovers Muffin Tops. In the end she needs "The Cleaner" to come take care of her Muffin Stump problem. That was not an issue with this Blueberry Crumb Cake. It was like one big Muffin Top!

Thank you to Sihan of Befuddlement for choosing this weeks recipe! There is nothing better than a good muffin made with fresh blueberries.
Lemon Zest

Sugar infused with the lemon zest
The batter was good enough to eat all by itself. But then you add the topping and think you are in heaven. I left out the walnuts because I don't like them. It was still delicious!
The finished product was divine! I made this on Friday to take to my scrapbook retreat. On Sunday one of the girls said it was still moist even though none of us had tried to recover it very well. There was a little left but not enough to warrant "The Cleaner"

My daughter has taken a page out of her fathers book and says she doesn't like cooked fruit. Which, she doesn't really. Bobby liked it until he got to the taste of the berries. Oh well, I am glad I took it with me because I could have eaten the entire thing myself and that would have been bad.

Next week: Coconut Butter Thins

I know what you mean about muffin tops! Too bad all this TWD baking is giving me one :) I baked my cakes in rounds and they look like gigantic muffins.

I'm glad you found some like-minded people to share the cake with. The topping took this cake to true muffin top goodness.

Looks great! Oh, I love that episode of Seinfeld!

Whew. I made it, been a busy couple of days. Thanks for stopping by my blog. I always want to at least try to get to those who come to mine. Glad you loved this cake. You could totally make it without the berries and it would be a great coffee cake. I like the blueberry taste, but don't love when the berries get mushy when cooked.
Great post, Karen.
