This tender and moist blueberry streusel cake recipe will quickly become your family’s new favourite, as it has with mine! When you’re craving something sweet, make this simple blueberry cake.

Now, many people have never heard of streusel. Streusel is a very simple addition to baked goods that help elevate the flavour.

The word, ‘streusel’, originates from Germany, and it translates as ‘sprinkles’.

It is essentially a crumbly topping used in baking.

This crumbly topping is typically made of flour, butter, and sugar. Some recipes may include spices and nuts on occasion.

Blueberries are a popular flavouring in baked goods. This super berry is plentiful in the summer and can be easily incorporated into summer recipes.

They are nutrient-dense berries with numerous health benefits. They can lower the risk of developing heart disease and promote skin health.

The butter in this cake recipe is essential. It is preferable to use unsalted butter rather than salted butter.

As different brands of butter contain varying amounts of salt, using unsalted butter allows you to control the salt content. Salt is an important ingredient because it adds flavour and lifts the taste.

When it comes to flour, plain flour, also known as all-purpose flour in the United States, is always preferable to self-rising flour.

This is due to the fact that plain flour has a longer shelf life than self-rising flour. Plain flour can be used to make self-rising flour as needed. All you need is baking powder.

If there are any leftover cake slices, just make sure that you store them properly in a sealed airtight container in a cool, dry place to prevent the cake from drying out.

It is best to eat the cake within a few days, as any longer will end up with the cake drying out. Who wants to eat dry cake? No one!

This blueberry streusel cake recipe is ideal for a breakfast with tea or for a wonderful snack. Every bite of this delectable cake will be divine.
