Ingredients

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour (plus 1-2 Tbsp of flour for dusting the blueberries)
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1-pint blueberries

Streusel

  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon

Instructions

Preheat the oven to 375°F. Butter or grease an 8 or 9-inch square pan or 9-inch round cake pan. Set aside.

Make Streusel: Combine butter, sugar, flour, and cinnamon with a fork to make a crumbly topping.

For the Cake: Whisk together 2 cups of flour, baking powder and the salt in a medium bowl. In a separate bowl or stand mixer beat together the butter, sugar, egg and vanilla until fluffy, about 3 minutes. Add the flour mixture, alternating with 1/2 cup milk, until just combined. Fold in blueberries.

Pour batter into prepared pan and sprinkle streusel topping over the batter.

Bake the cake for 40 to 45 minutes. Insert a cake tester in the center. If it comes out clean, set cake on a cooling rack for 10 minutes before serving or transferring to a serving plate. If the cake tester does not come out clean, bake for an additional 5 to 10 minutes.
