We had a guest this weekend request Jan’s Blueberry Crumb Cake recipe that we have served here at the inn for a while now. It’s a favorite of ours and by the number of recipe requests we get, our guests also. So we decided to post it for your use. Enjoy!!

Blueberry Crumb Cake
1 package plain yellow cake mix
1 cup butter; melted
1 cup old fashioned oatmeal
1/2 cup brown sugar; packed
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon cinnamon
2 cups blueberries; fresh or frozen

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Set aside an ungreased 13 by 9 inch baking pan.
  3. Place the cake mix, melted butter, oatmeal, brown sugar, eggs and cinnamon in a large mixing bowl.
  4. Blend with a mixer on low speed for 1 minute. The mixture will be thick.
  5. Reserve 1 1/2 cups of mixture and set aside.
  6. Spread the remaining mixture in the baking pan.
  7. Pour the blueberries onto the mixture spreading them evenly.
  8. Take the reserve mixture and spoon or glob over the blueberries.
  9. Bake the cake until light brown, about 40-45 minutes.
  10. Let cool for 30 minutes before cutting.

Hint from Jan: Arkansas Blueberries are the best for this dessert. I have tried Texas, Michigan, Maryland and Virginia blueberries.

Hint from Richard: I love to eat this while it’s still a little warm. Adds a new layer to the flavors.
