A cake that is packed with fruit so you can say it is ‘one of your 5-a-day’ sounds a dream. And this blueberry cake just fits the bill!
To be honest it is a bit premature to have seasonal blueberries from the UK, but with their season passing over the summer this is a real summer time cake.
The fresh moist blueberries contrast with the crunch crumble topping that serves well with a bit of doubl cream or vanilla ice cream.

1/2 tsp salt
1 lemon zest
1 tsp vanilla extract

Make the crumb topping by mixing all the ingredients together and rub in the butter until large crumbs form
