BLUEBERRY CRUMB COFFEE CAKE-EASTER BREAKFAST


Our Easter morning still involves a crack of dawn (at east it feels like it) egg hunt for my daughter and her cousins followed by a fierce sugar frenzy involving half eaten marshmallow peeps, jelly beans and ending with a decapitated chocolate bunny and stomachache! I like to watch the early morning chaos with a cup of extremely strong  French roast coffee and a slice of delicious blueberry crumb cake hot from the oven. The crumb cake has become an Easter morning tradition, it's rich and delicious, bursting with fresh blueberries and lightly scented with cinnamon-and honestly, I can't resist the buttery crumble topping! I like to add a dollop of Greek yogurt for a perfect on the go breakfast. As for the half eaten marshmallow chick, I confess, it was me!
Blueberry Crumb Cake

For the Strusel topping-
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/3 cup light brown sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
1 stick unsalted butter, melted
1 1/2 cups flour

For the cake
6 tablespoons unsalted butter, at room temperature
3/4 cups granulated sugar
2 extra large eggs, at room temp.
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2/3 cup sour cream
1/2 teaspoon grated lemon zest
1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup fresh blueberries

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. 
Butter and flour a 9-inch round baking pan. 

For the streusel-
Combine the sugars and spices in a bowl.  Stir in the melted butter and then the flour. Set aside.

For the cake-
Cream the butter and sugar in a bowl with an electric mixer for 4 minutes, until light. Reduce the speed to low, add the eggs one at a time, then add the vanilla, lemon zest and sour cream.  In a seperate bowl , sift the flour, baking powder and baking soda together. With the mixer on low, add the flour mixture to the wet mixture until just combined. Gently fold in the blueberries. Spoon the batter into the prepared pan and with your fingers, gently crumble the topping over the batter. Bake for 40-50 minutes until cake tester comes out clean.
