For the cake –
1/4 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup sugar
1 large egg
2 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
3/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup milk
2 cups blueberries, fresh or frozen
For the topping –
2/3 cup sugar
1/2 cup flour
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/3 cup cold butter, cubed
1. Preheat oven 350º F. Spray a 9 inch square pan with baking spray.
2. To make the cake, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the egg and mix thoroughly. Stir in the milk. Add the flour, baking powder, and salt. Stir to combine. Spread half the batter evenly into the bottom of the greased baking dish. Sprinkle 1 1/2 cups of the blueberries evenly on top of the batter. Carefully spread the remaining batter over the blueberries. Sprinkle the final 1/2 cup of blueberries on top of the batter.
3. To make the topping, place the sugar, flour, and cinnamon into a bowl and mix to combine. Add the cubed butter and rub between fingers and thumbs until the topping resembles crumbles. Sprinkle the topping over the cake.
4. Bake for 35-45 minutes, or until the top is golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the cake comes out clean. Cool before serving.
