The Perfect Blueberry Crumb Cake

The Perfect Blueberry Crumb Cake - Easy Life Meal & Party PlanningThis blueberry crumb cake is light, moist, has a hint of cinnamon throughout with a cinnamon crumb topping and a thin powdered sugar glaze. My husband, who is a blueberry fanatic, tells me it is the absolute perfect blueberry crumb cake he has ever eaten. Not only is it delicious it is also a very pretty cake.
