Blueberry Banana Crumb Cake

Blueberry Banana Crumb Cake | Fabtastic Eats

We spent almost the entirety of last weekend reupholstering a glider for the nursery. So, we’ve reupholstered chairs before, but nothing to this extent and boy was it a TON of work. And unfortunately we’re not even done. We thought we were. But by the time we put the base back on, we realized he have to add a skirt, something we were trying to avoid, and we have to redo the cushion part of the chair. My husband is not thrilled, and me? Even less so. I love projects, but eventually I reach a point where I’m ready to be done and move on..I am definitely at that point.

Other than that though, the rest of the nursery is coming together nicely. We only need small things now, so that’s fun! I’m getting anxious to meet this little guy, and relieve myself of all this discomfort, but at the same time, I want to slow it down so I can spend more time with just my two boys and really appreciate this pregnancy, in case it really is my last.

With my first two, I baked like crazy the entire 9 months, and this time, nada. Maybe 2-3 things the entire time? It may have something to do with the fact that it was summer and unbearably hot here this year, but Ive got my baking mojo back on, and I made us this absolutely heavenly, soft, fluffy, mouthwatering blueberry banana crumb cake!

It’s just so, so good. I don’t know how to talk you into it other than to just say, make it!! It’s breakfast, snacks, lunch-standing-over-the-pan, (if you’re me!)…and everything in between. Its loaded with 2 heaping cups of fresh, huuge, juicy blueberries and topped with an abundance of crumb topping!

Everyone will thank you for serving them up a slice of this! Enjoy!

Ingredients

    For the Cake
  • 1/2 cup salted butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 ripe bananas
  • 2 eggs, room temperature
  • 1/4 cup milk (I used 2%)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 cups fresh blueberries
  • For the Crumble
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/2 cup salted butter, softened

Directions

  1. Preheat your oven to 350Β° and grease your pan.
  2. In the bowl of a stand mixer, fitted with the paddle attachment, cream together your butter and sugar for 3-4 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, in a medium sized bowl, mash your bananas well, until all the chunks are out. Whisk in the eggs, milk, and vanilla.
  4. Add the banana mixture to the butter and sugar, and mix on medium speed, being sure to scrape the bottom.
  5. Add the flour, baking powder, and baking soda to a sifter, and sift into the wet ingredients, stir until just combined.
  6. Remove the bowl from the mixer, and using a rubber spatula carefully fold in the fresh blueberries. Spread the batter into your greased pan and set aside.
  7. To make the crumble, in a large bowl, whisk together the brown sugar, flour, cinnamon, and nutmeg, removing any possible chunks from the brown sugar.
  8. Cut in the butter in small chunks, and using a fork, mash together until the mix turns into a course crumble.
  9. Top your cake with the crumble, pinching it together slightly as you sprinkle it evenly on.
  10. Pop in the oven and bake for 40-45 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean. Cool for about 30 minutes before slicing, and enjoy!
