Blueberry Loaf Cake w/ streusel topping


Nothing like combining a couple different recipes to get the one you want! I was looking for a blueberry coffee type of cake on allrecipes.ca  and came across a Blueberry Loaf Cake but I wasn't a fan of the topping and wanted some with more punch, so I found another cake recipe which had a streusel topping and added to my loaf! The middle of the loaf caved in a bit because I think the topping might have been a bit too heavy. I won't be cutting into the loaf until tomorrow but I'm sure it'll be a hit! Here are the recipes I followed:


Blueberry Loaf Cake


Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries
  • TOPPING:
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Directions

  1. In a mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar. Beat in eggs, milk and vanilla. Combine flour and baking powder; add to creamed mixture just until combined. Gently fold in blueberries. Pour into a greased 9-in. x 5-in. x 3-in. loaf pan. Combine sugar and cinnamon; sprinkle over top. Bake at 350 degrees F for 50-55 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack to cool completely.



  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup butter
Cut in the butter/margarine

Great blog! Do you have any helpful hints for aspiring writers?
I'm planning to start my own website soon but I'm a little lost on everything.
Would you recommend starting with a free platform like Wordpress
or go for a paid option? There are so many options out there that I'm completely overwhelmed .. Any ideas? Appreciate it!
