TWD: Blueberry Crumb Cake
Another fun day baking! Sihan of Walking in the Rain chose the recipe this week and made a lot of people happy in the process. Click above to get the recipe.
One interesting thing about this cake is that you mix the lemon zest and sugar together with your fingers before incorporating the rest of the ingredients for the cake. And when we took our first test bite we could definitely taste the lemon flavor.
Loved the crumb topping, which I made in the Swift Chopper that was a gift from my kids rather than using the food processor. Worked very well and fewer pieces to wash afterwards.
One of Keith's observations about this cake was that "it seems like a polite cake like the kind that ladies would have with a cup of tea." Made me smile. :)
My only complaint about the cake, and it could've been that I mixed it too much, is that the next day it was very, very dry. I usually bake my TWD confections, we each have a piece, then I take the rest with me to work the next day so that we don't sit around and eat it all. This was too dry to share like that. :(
