For the cake batter:

  • 1 cup -Light brown sugar
  • ½ cup - Butter at room temperature
  • 2 lg eggs
  • 1 tsp - Vanilla extract
  • 1 ¾ cups - All purpose flour
  • ¼ tsp - Salt
  • 2 tsp - Baking powder

For the crumble:

  • 2 tbsp - Whole almonds
  • 2 tbsp - Rolled oats
  • ¼ cup - All purpose flour
  • ¼ tsp - Salt
  • ¼ cup - Brown sugar
  • ½ tsp - Powdered cinnamon
  • 4 tbsp - Melted butter


For the crumble:

  • Take the almonds, oats and flour in a food processor and process it until the oats and almonds are broken down into uniform small pieces.
  • Set aside in a bowl and add the sugar, butter, cinnamon and salt and give it a thorough mixing until everything is well combined.

For the cake:

  • Take the butter and sugar in a bowl and cream it with an electric whisk for a few minutes.
  • Add one egg at a time and whisk it until it is evenly mixed.
  • Now add the vanilla extract and half of the flour in and give it another whisk.
  • Add the milk into the bowl and shift in the remaining flour, salt and baking powder into the bowl.
  • Take a spatula and mix everything gently until all the dry flour in incorporated into the dough.--see next step for tip about blueberries!
  • Add all the blueberries and give it another mix. Tip: if you have trouble with blueberries sinking in your cake, give them a quick shake into the dry mixture to coat.
  • Pour the batter into a greased and lined cake pan.
  • Now take the crumble and evenly dust it all over the top of the batter.
  • Tap the pan gently on the table/counter to get rid of any air bubbles.
  • Place the cake pan in a preheated oven at 350 degrees (180 degrees Celsius) for about 60 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the middle of the cake comes out clean.
  • Let the cake cool complete and enjoy!
