Cinnamon Blueberry Cake with streusel topping & vanilla glaze

Pin It

Omg doesn't that just sound mouth watering?! Well its blueberry season and since I  live in the blueberry capitol of the world I've been eating them by the bucket, literally. I attempted to make these blueberry crumble bars the other day but went WAAYYYYYY overboard on the blueberry mixture and so instead I got an interesting take on a blueberry buckle with a thin crust on the bottom. It was actually soooooo delicious because I added lemon zest and juice to the berry mix mmmmm.

 Ok anyways, I still have a ton of berries left so i decided to make blueberry muffins to bring into work tomorrow. But like I said before I NEVER have everything I need and I was out of the cupcake/muffin liners. 

So I decided to make a cake instead. And it was a success! 

 This is seriously a scrumptious cake! Its light and sweet with a ton of blueberries. The crumble topping is slightly crunchy but still super smooth and sweet. And then that glaze mmmmm. Just goes perfect with the streusel on top! You know your wishing you could have this cake! 
p.s. I added quite a bit of cinnamon because I can never have enough so feel free to use less, but who would do that?!
