We were very happy with this cake. It’s feathery light and tender. You can adjust the blueberries with no issues, my husband likes lots of berries, me – not so much. I love being able to taste the cake, and this one is a keeper! I used frozen berries, but thawed them first. I believe you could substitute Raspberries, or chopped Apples. I haven’t tried it yet, but planning on it.

CINNAMON CRUMBLE PREPARATION:
In a small bowl, add Brown Sugar, Butter, Flour, and Cinnamon. Using a pastry blender, work it until you have a crumbled consistency. Don’t over mix or you’ll end up with a very flat crumble. You want it to be pea-sized.
Using a large spoon, shake the Crumble on top of Cake Batter.
Bake cake at 350° F for 40 minutes. Use toothpick test by inserting toothpick into center of cake. If it is clean when you pull it out, your cake is done.
Place a small strainer over a bowl, and sift the Confectionary Sugar by pressing with the back and edge of a spoon. Add Milk and Vanilla. (Add Cinnamon if using). Mix well with spoon until no lumps remain.
Test to see if it’s of drizzling consistency. If it’s too thick, add a few extra drops of Milk. If it’s too thin, add extra Confectionary Sugar.
Let cake cool for 10 – 15 minutes, and then drizzle Glaze over cake.
