For this weeks TWD Sihan of Befuddlement– picked Blueberry Crumb Cake on pages 192-193 of Baking From My Home To Yours by Dorie Greenspan.
I had a single cup of frozen blueberries left but chopped up a couple of peaches that had gotten too bruised for my diserning taste panel to eat. In the spirit of cleaning out the fridge and freezer I also had some orange zest good to go. I made this in the 8 inch square as suggested but the middle took a long time to set which made the edges a bit dry and overcooked. All was saved by the crumb topping though. I know it is childish to only want to eat the crumb topping but oh dear, it was so good.
Notes for next time. The cake was ok, but again it was all about the crumbs for me. Perhaps try in a loaf size for more even baking or even go back to muffin size (Matt’s suggestion). I also wonder how this would go with the French Yougurt Cake from last week as the base. I did really like that cake.
Now it’s time to say see you next week, and go check out the TWD blogroll and see all the crumb cakes you could desire.
