Blueberry Crumb Cake

This recipe is my favorite kind of recipe. It was passed to me from my friend, whose mother made it for her.

When I was about 13, I stayed the night at my best friends house. Typically you could find me at her house or her at my house most weekend nights.

One night, after walking home to her house from our junior high school, her mom made this Blueberry Crumb Cake.

It was one of the best things I had ever tasted at that point in my life. I remember I politely asked for seconds.... then thirds. Her mom chuckled but let me indulge in this wonderful dessert.

Years later, when my friend and I had kids of our own, she passed the recipe to me. Now I make it whenever I can get my hands on wonderfully plump blueberries! I hope you enjoy this cake as much as my family does! ~ Janet
