>TWD: Blueberry Crumb Cake

>The first time I ever had blueberries was during my first visit to Canada in 1998, from that day on I was hooked. I can honestly say that blueberries are one of my favourite fruits, but still I have never baked anything with them.

This week I finally had the change to bake with blueberries as Sihan of Fundamentally Flawed had picked Blueberry Crumb Cake for this weeks TWD.

Again I managed to mess up: I totally forgot to add the sugar to the cake mixture….. O well, on to the next attempt: this one succeeded, the coworkers loved it and I liked it too: it looked, smelled and tasted good.

I just had one issue with this cake: all my blueberries sunk to the bottom…..

By the way, I cut the cake into 24 squares and 1 square was only 3,5 WW Points!

P.S. I accidentally deleted the pics from my camera before saving them on my pc……. So no pics this week unfortunately.
