Blackberry Jam Crumb Cake

I'm afraid this is one more without step by steps or anything. Mostly, this time, because I was making it at night and I just can't get decent pictures at night in this place. Yet. But it was so good I had to share it. The recipe is here, although I saw it over the The Hungry Dog. It's a very simple cake that uses melted butter instead of softened, which is great for whipping it up on the fly. I used some blackberry jam that one of my sisters made. I've had it sitting in a cupboard for months, trying to decide what to do with it. I could just make pb&js with it, but that seems kind of like a waste, you know? So I used some of it in this cake. Good times kids, I highly recommend it if you are looking for a cake that's not too sweet. It's perfect for breakfast and it's easy to put together, what more do you want from a crumb cake?

Great way to use homemade jam! I wouldn't be able to use it for a PBJ either :)

I love the crumb top! Yum!

I have a hard time with the 'steps' photos too since I do all my cooking at 3 in the morning. I've gone to pretty much just doing a finished product shot :(

I let a whole summer go by without any blackberries, sad eh?
I love crumb cake, a lot actually, so this is a winner in my opinion.

Mmm, I love this kind of simple cake with tea, not too sweet.
I gave up on step by steps a long time ago. I have no natural light and my pics were all orange. The finished shots I do are under a desk lamp. Seems to work!

Delicious. I love a good crumb cake.

My solution to the night time photo problem is to use my oven light. Mine isn't fluorescent and so it doesn't give off that orange-y color.

Happy New Year!

Your coffee cake looks delicious! I have the same issues with the "steps". Even during the day, I don't get enough light in the kitchen. I'm always hauling my mixing bowl into the living room and trying to get a picture without the cat in the backround. :o Happy New Year, Bob!

Leslie said...

mmmmm.I will take this with a big glass of milk please!

Kate at Serendipity said...

Happy New Year, Bob!

This is perfect for breakfast! Or anytime really. Crumb cakes are one of my favorite things. Sometimes I just slice off the top half to eat and leave the cake part. hee hee.

Pocky said...

OMG! I'd break my diet for a piece of this cake.
