TWD: Blueberry Crumb Cake

The first time I ever had blueberries was during my first visit to Canada in 1998, from that day on I was hooked. I can honestly say that blueberries are one of my favourite fruits, but still I have never baked anything with them.


This week I finally had the change to bake with blueberries as Sihan of Fundamentally Flawed had picked Blueberry Crumb Cake for this weeks TWD.

Again I managed to mess up: I totally forgot to add the sugar to the cake mixture..... O well, on to the next attempt: this one succeeded, the coworkers loved it and I liked it too: it looked, smelled and tasted good.


I just had one issue with this cake: all my blueberries sunk to the bottom.....


By the way, I cut the cake into 24 squares and 1 square was only 3,5 WW Points!

P.S. I accidentally deleted the pics from my camera before saving them on my pc....... So no pics this week unfortunately.

O no! I feel so bad for those blueberries that got wasted.

Engineer Baker zei

Yikes! No sugar might not be a good thing with this cake :) I'm glad things turned out better the second time!

SiHaN zei

Hi Marthe, kudos to yout for trying out the recipe twice! I did too but it was a major flop for me the 2nd time. Had an issue with the sinking berries AND the sinking crumbs. Glad you enjoyed it anyway. the smell was pretty awesome..

kimberly salem zei

good idea to cut it into small squares! the 1/8 size squares were sooo many calories ;) glad you finally got to bake w/ blueberries!

Aubrey zei

Ooooh! Sounds like it was delish!

Yummy! What if the next time you bake the cake, you stir it half way through. This way you can make sure the blueberries are mixed in and they may not sink to the bottom. I love blueberries so much! And I love Crumb Cake! So I am basically...in love!

OH dear Marthe!! You must have really been annoyed with yourself for forgetting the sugar first time around! Glad you persevered though and tryed it again. My blueberries sunk a little bit too, but I thought the cake was gorgeous!!

I forget to add stuff all the time! I'm glad the second one turned out better. The drifting blueberries do make it a tough pan to clean up!

Glad the second time was better:)

My blueberries sunk too, and I even tossed them with flour.

Drat!

Teanna zei

That's awesome that you tried it twice! And that it works out with WW! Great job!

Lillian zei

You cut it into 24 squares? I can't imagine -- I cut it into quarters, and had to hide half of my quarter from the ravening horde that is my family so I could have it for lunch!

TeaLady zei

"SOUNDS" delicious.

Liz zei

I can't believe you've never baked with blueberries before! You've been missing out, girl! Glad to hear that you and your coworkers loved the cake.

mangomissives zei

I love blueberries too but I ended up using diced mango since I had one laying around waiting for me to do something with it. :)
