Crumble Topping

  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup cold butter, cubed
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon


  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/4 cup whole milk
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 4 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 cup blueberries


  • 9-inch round cake pan
  • Small Bowl
  • Medium Bowl
  • Large Bowl
  • Rubber Spatula
  • Toothpicks
  • Step 1

    Preheat the oven to 350°F. Spray a 9-inch round baking pan with cooking spray and set aside.

  • Step 2

    In a small bowl, combine the cinnamon sugar topping ingredients. Set aside.

  • Step 3

    In a medium bowl, add all crumble topping ingredients. With a fork, mix the ingredients together, combining the butter into the dry ingredients until a crumbly dough mixture is formed. Set aside.

  • Step 4

    Assemble the hand mixer attachment on the power base, then install the beaters.

  • Step 5

    To prepare the cake batter, add the dry ingredients: flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt to a large bowl. Press power to mix on speed 1 until evenly combined, about 10 seconds.

  • Step 6

    Next, create a well in the center of the dry ingredients and add sour cream, milk, egg, vanilla extract, and butter. Press power to begin mixing on speed 1 and then gradually increase to speed 4. Mix until the batter is smooth, about 2 minutes.

  • Step 7

    Using a rubber spatula, gently fold blueberries into the batter. Transfer the batter to the prepared baking pan. Top with the cinnamon sugar topping, followed by the crumble topping.

  • Step 8

    Place the cake in the oven and bake for 40 to 45 minutes or until a toothpick will come out clean after being inserted in the center.

  • Step 9

    Remove cake from the oven and allow to cool completely before serving. Once cooled, dust with confectioner’s sugar, then slice and serve.
