TWD: Blueberry Crumb Cake

It's no secret that I love breakfast. Okay, more specifically, I love sweet breakfasts. Let's face it... My blog could be called "Breakfast with Cristine" or, more honestly, "Cristine's excuse to have sugar at 8 AM"!

Given my love for a good sugar high in the morning, I was thrilled when Sihan of Fundamentally-Flawed chose Blueberry Crumb Cake for this week's Tuesdays with Dorie. Ah.... any excuse to HAVE to make a crumb cake!


This cake was mighty delicious! Full of yummy, fresh blueberries and topped with a fantastic crumb topping - it just doesn't get any better. I cut the recipe in half (I may love sweets but I have to control myself somewhere!) and baked it in a loaf pan. I also used pecans in the crumb topping because I was out of walnuts (how did that happen?). I loved, loved, loved it and will be making it again!

For the recipe, head over to Sihan's blog. And don't forget to check out the blogroll to see what the talented TWDers baked up!

Mmm...look at all that blueberry goodness! I love your photo! This was a delicious way to start the day, and I'm not a huge sugar fan early in the day (we ate this one for dessert).
