Berrylicious Blueberry Crumb Cake

Did you know that July is National Blueberry Month? Quite possibly nature's perfect fruit, blueberries are one of the healthiest foods around, and they require no pitting or peeling. Take advantage of these little blue gems with this delightful blueberry crumb cake recipe created by our very own Chef Manu.

Although crumb cakes are most often served for breakfast, this version, with oodles of sweet blueberries and a rich, buttery topping, is decadent enough to be served for dessert (with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, of course). Or, have it with a cup of coffee or tea in the afternoon. So, top-off your summer with this any-time blueberry treat.
