Blueberry Crumble Cake

What colours, when added together, turn green?

Got it?

It’s blue and yellow!!!


Or at least I think that was what happened to my blueberry crumble cake. I must have streak the blueberries into the yellow batter unknowingly, resulting in one area of the cake looking rather greenish. Too bad for the appearance though because I really like this cake! It was moist-the way a cake should be.

I saw this recipe featured on Fresh from the Oven sometime back and saved it in my recipes folder. I used frozen blueberries as the fresh ones are really expensive-but still love the bite in the blueberries in the cake. Certainly one that is a keeper….. except the green streaks!

  1. that’s interesting, didn’t know that mixing blueberries with the batter will turn into green color. But I think color doesn’t matter at all, as long as the cake tastes good, agree? πŸ˜‰

  2. hey daphne, I am glad you like the cake. The green that you mentioned is not obvious! Anyway, it’s the taste that counts. I find the original recipe slightly too sweet because of all the crumbles. But the Americans love it though.
