Easter Brunch

We are going to have Easter brunch on Saturday. We love this blueberry coffee cake. Too time consuming and decadent for everyday, it's become our favorite special occasion breakfast treat. It's really wonderful. We'll eat it with hard-boiled eggs. You can find the recipe on-line or below. I've made a few changes, like size of pan, baking time and no blueberries in the topping.

Classic Crumb Cake (from Martha Stewart May 2001)

Preheat oven to 350.

Cream together:
10 T. butter
1 c. sugar
3 large eggs
1 t. vanilla

Whisk together than add to creamed mixture:
2 1/2 c. flour
1 t. baking powder
1 t. baking soda
1/4 t. salt

Beat in:
1 1/4 c. sour cream

Fold in:
2 c. blueberries (optional)

Pour batter into a large 10-12", greased springform pan. Top with crumb topping.

Crumb Topping
Mix together:
1 1/2 t. ground cinnamon
1/2 t. salt
1/2 c. packed brown sugar (3/4 c. powdered sugar)
1 1/2 c. flour
Cut in:
12 T. butter

Bake for 60-80 minutes or until cake tester inserted in center comes out clean. Dust with powdered sugar.
