Mini Blueberry Crumb Loaf
My sister and I used to make the packaged Betty Crocker Coffee Cake all the time when we were younger I wanted to try my hand at a homemade version. Brock loves blueberries and has had the worst cold all week so I decided to make something a little special for him. This is the most delicious mini blueberry crumb loaf that’s filled with fresh blueberries and has a sweet cinnamon streusel topping. It’s perfectly moist and so simple to make!
I think the streusel topping takes these mini loaves to another level. All it takes is flour, sugar, cinnamon and melted butter and sprinkle on top of the batter before baking it. It’s heaven!
Mini Blueberry Crumb Loaf Recipe
For the Cake:
2 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 & 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 cup milk
1 & 1/2 cups fresh blueberries
For the Streusel Topping:
1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
4 tablespoons butter, melted
-Preheat oven to 350°F and grease your mini loaf pans.
-For the cake batter, beat together the butter and sugar. Beat until light and fluffy (about 3 minutes). Add the egg and vanilla, then beat again.
-In a separate bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, and salt. Add 1/3 of the flour mixture to the butter mixture and mix until combined. Then add 1/2 of the milk, alternating with the rest of the flour (and ending with the flour). Mix until just combined and then gently fold in the blueberries.
-For the streusel topping, stir the flour, sugar, and cinnamon together in a small bowl. Add the melted butter and mix with until all combined and crumbled. Place in the refrigerator for a bit to harden the butter back up!
-Add batter to your loaf pans and sprinkle the streusel topping over the batter. Bake for 30-40 minutes or until the streusel is golden brown and a toothpick comes out clean.
-Allow the loaf to cool for 20 minutes in the pans and then transfer to a wire rack.
These loaves make the perfect spring gift for your neighbor or just keep them for yourself and serve with a warm cup of joe in the morning. Brock and I loved having a few slices with our morning coffee and you will too!
