Blueberry Crumble Cake

Light tasty crumble cake, great with a cup of hot tea! :) Besides using blueberries, other berries like raspberries, blackberries can also be substituted...the daunting part of making this cake is the crumble topping ><...make sure the butter is cold & hard & cut into smaller cubes before rubbing into the flour if not you will get a sticky lump of dough instead!

Crumble Topping

  • 20gm unsalted butter, cubed & chilled
  • 30gm rolled oats

These days, blueberries seems a bit on the expensive side. Hmm, hehe...
