Ingredients

FOR THE CAKE:

  • 2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 5 tablespoons softened unsalted butter
  • 3/4 cup sugar

Instructions

MAKE THE CAKE:

  • Preheat your oven to 350° and grease a 9x13 baking dish.
  • In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg.
  • Next, in a larger mixing bowl, add the butter and sugar and mix until combined.
  • Add the egg and vanilla and mix until completely combined.
  • Next, alternate adding a third of the flour mixture and then 1/3 of the buttermilk. Mixing until just combined. Repeat until both are gone. Don't over mix.
  • Use a spatual and fold in the blueberries gently until incorporated. Pour the batter into the prepared pan and set aside.

MAKE THE CRUMBLE:

  • In a mixing bowl, add the butter, sugar, flour, cinnamon and salt. Using a pastry cutter, blend until combined.
  • Sprinkle an even layer on top of the cake and place on the middle rack of your preheated oven. Bake for 45-50 minutes or until a tester comes out mostly clean with a few crumbs attached.
  • Once baked, remove from the oven and immediately sprinkle with 1 tablespoon of sugar.
