Wild Berry Crumb Cake, a delicious cake filled with wild Berries and a delicious Buttery Streusel Topping. The Perfect Snack or Dessert Cake.
I know a lot of you are just getting over your delicious Thanksgiving Dinner, Turkey, stuffing and the works and here I am offering you another slice of cake! That’s ok it’s the holidays.
But I have to say, every time I make Muffins or a Crumb Cake, I always have the Italian asking me “why don’t you add some “frutti di bosco” (berries) to the mix, I’m sure it would work” so to make him happy, that is exactly what I did.
And to make me happy I made a buttery crumb topping! Can’t go wrong with that. Sometimes I find a crumb topping so much more delicious than a frosting.
I don’t know about you but red berries always remind me of Winter and Christmas. I love the deep red colour and the taste is amazing. For this Berry Crumb Cake I used frozen berries, which gives the cake some extra moisture, but fresh would work also.
Wild Berry Crumb Cake
Last year for Christmas I made a Fresh Cream Lemon Cake this year I thought (ok my husband encouraged me) why not Berries? The beautiful red Colour and flavour would be perfect!
This Wild Berry Crumb Cake is very fast and easy to make, a simple vanilla cake topped with two cups of frozen berries and then the final crumb top layer makes this the ultimate Breakfast or delicious snack cake.
If you don’t like red berries then frozen blueberries I am sure would work just as well. Enjoy!
