Blueberry Crumb Cake

Hi and thanks for stopping by my blog today:) One of my favorite fruits that I consume almost everyday are Blueberries. They are packed with so much nutrients and are the perfect add-on to pancakes, waffles, oatmeal, etc I decided to try a recipe that incorporates blueberries and I ended up with a Blueberry crumb cake. Crumb cakes are the perfect mesh between a regular cake and a pie in my opinion which makes them perfect anytime of the day! It turned out super delicious and rich. It freezes well too, so you can enjoy it for a while! This recipe is pretty easy to follow but a little time consuming. Try it out and let me know what you think. 
Great thing about this recipe is that you switch out the blueberries for your favorite fruit, I will be trying it with cherries next!

INGREDIENTS
Crumb Topping:
2 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/3 cup light brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
1 1/2 sticks of unsalted butter melted

Cake Batter:
2 sticks of unsalted butter, softened
1 1/2 cups sugar
3 large eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
3 egg yolks
1/4 cup of milk or buttermilk
4 cups of blueberries, picked over and pattered dry

DIRECTIONS
Set a rack in the middle of the oven and preheat to 350 degrees.
For the crumb topping, mix the flour, baking powder, sugars, cinnamon and nutmeg in a bowl. Stir in the melted butter. Rub the mixture between your fingers to form coarse crumbs. Set aside.
In a large mixer bowl, beat the butter and sugar until soft and light. Add the eggs one at a time, beating smooth after each addition. Beat in the vanilla extract.
Stir together the flour and baking powder and add the dry mixture to the batter in 3 additions, alternating with the yolks and milk, beginning and ending with the flour. Spread the batter evenly in a pan buttered and lined with parchment paper.
Scatter the blueberries evenly over the batter, pressing in gently. Repeat with the crumb mixture.
Bake the cake until the batter is firm and crumbs are well colored, about 40 minutes.
Cool the cake on a rack and serve and enjoy after!

London street look

Hi everyone and thanks for stopping by my blog:) Last week, I took a mini vacation with my hubby to London, UK. London is one of my favorite cities in the world! From the food (I will have a post dedicated to this soon), fashion, shopping, culture, name it I love it all! I am a lil biased towards London because its also my birth place :) I hadn't visited in almost seven years so spending a few days there and taking it all in was just the perfect babymoon:) On one of the days there, here was what I wore. 




Yes I did change to sneakers on my way out, lol. Comfort first!

My love for the little French cafe in Savannah, Georgia

Hi everyone and hope your week has been going great?  Today, I am reviewing one of my favorite spots in Savannah, Georgia. Savannah is one my favorite cities in Georgia. It's about a 31/2 hour drive or an hour flight from Atlanta. I have been there a few times and I think it's the perfect small city with so much culture and character with so much to offer. From Tybee Island beaches to the restaurants (foodie heaven) many boutiques and famous school SCAD (I would love to attend their fashion show next year for sure.) It's worth the drive or flight,  if you want to get away from the hectic life in Atlanta. Another big bonus is that its about a 40 minutes drive from Hilton Head Island, SC.

I fell in love with this French cafe Papilotte on my first visit to Savannah and I always go back whenever I visit. Stepping into this cafe takes me back to Paris, France which I miss :) They have the best sandwiches and macaroons. They also carry yummy spreads, oils, french drinks, etc. My favorite sandwich is the Le Parisien (Ham, Swiss cheese, brie and paper-thin slices of apple with a touch of honey-mustard on a slice of crunchy ciabatta bread.)  Are there any small cities you love and what's your favorite spot there?
