If you haven't noticed, I haven't been baking much lately. A lot has been going on that has kept me out of the kitchen. However, in what I have had for free time, I have been looking through my CL Annual Recipes cookbook for 1999. Which is where my Longevity Noodles came from (yum - I will be making them again).
This morning since I was up early again, I decided to go ahead an make the Blueberry Crumb Cake recipe I had tabbed and had been thinking about making the last few days. The house smells wonderful this morning and my co-workers are going to be nicely surprised on this Friday morning. :o)

Oh yummy! I love Blueberries, whether it's in Muffins or Cake. This looks mouth-wateringly good. Not good for the diet of course, but who cares if it tastes as good as it looks. You have to treat yourself sometimes.
You bake in the morning BEFORE WORK? What are you, some kind of insane-o morning person? 😉 Seriously this looks great--I hope your co-workers appreciate you!
Ciao ! I love this cake ! I hope everything is ok with you !!
Burp and Slurp~!
this looks freaking incredible. anything with crumble topping is great, in my opinion.
I am loving the crumb! I just got a quart of organic blueberries for $3.99. I can't think of a better way to use them!
Wow! This looks really fantastic, moist, sweet and delicious! A blueberry crumb cake is probably my favorite coffee cake (and wouldn't you know, I have some frozen blueberries cooling their heels in the freezer right now... hmmmm.......). Thanks for a great recipe!
