It’s been a hot summer here on the prairies of Canada. When the heat comes the rainy nights follow, just enough to keep everything wet and lush. Our berry bushes have really taken off this year and are ripe for the picking with more than enough blueberries than I know what to do with so we’ve been busy baking. This Blueberry Crumb Cake was the first recipe I wanted to share; it’s similar to a pie but in a deliciously moist cake.




This cake isn’t short on sugary sweetness, bringing the full blueberry deliciousness to the surface. Sprinkled with chocolate shavings, I think you’ll enjoy a slice (or two – I won’t tell). This cake brings memories flooding back of summer days at grandma’s when she always had a treat ready for our tea time together.
