Blueberry Cake

This recipe is for a yummy breakfast cake that we make often. It was one of the first recipes that my girls learned to make when they were about nine or ten years old!

1 egg, beaten
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup milk
2 TB oil
1 cup flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 cup blueberries (fresh or frozen)

Streusel Topping:
1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup sugar
3 TB butter

Combine first four cake ingredients, mix until smooth. Add flour and baking powder, mix until smooth. Pour into 8X8 cake pan. Sprinkle blueberries over the top of the cake batter. Combine the streusel ingredients until they are evenly combined and crumbly. Sprinkle over the top of the blueberry cake. Bake at 375 for 30 minutes or until the top of the cake is golden brown (you need to be sure that it is browned on the top!).

You can substitute:

--Raspberries for the blueberries
--Peaches for the blueberries--Also substitute brown sugar for the white sugar called for in the streusel topping. (You can keep the white sugar in the cake part of the recipe.)

Enjoy! This recipe tastes wonderful, looks great and it's easy!
