    Light brown sugar – 1/4 cup

    Unsalted butter – 5 tbsp, room temperature

    Cinnamon powder – 1/2 tsp

    Walnuts – 1/2 cup, chopped

    Salt – 1/8 tsp

For the cake

2. All purpose flour – 1 3/4 cup

    Baking powder – 2 tsp

    Salt – 1/2 tsp

3. Vegetable oil – 1/3 cup

    Granulated sugar – 3/4 cup

     Egg – 1

    Vanilla extract – 1 tsp

4. Milk – 1/2 cup

    Yoghurt – 1/4 cup

5. Blueberries – 1 1/4 + 1/4 cup


1. Preheat oven at 350 F.

2. Grease a 9 inch spring form pan (or a regular 9 x 3 inch cake pan) with non-stick cooking spray.

3. In a medium bowl, mix together all the ingredients for the streusel topping (ingredients numbered 1) and mix with your fingers until combined. Set aside.

4.  In a small bowl, toss blue berries with 1 – 2 tsp all purpose flour.

     In another bowl, sift together the all purpose flour, baking powder and salt.

5. In a large bowl beat oil, sugar, egg and vanilla extract (ingredients numbered 3). Beat for 2 – 3 minutes until fluffy. Add milk and yoghurt. Beat until smooth. Now switch to a whisk. Add the dry ingredients (flour mixture) in 2 batches and stir until just incorporated (do not over mix). Stir in 1 1/4 cup blueberries (do not over stir) using a spatula. Pour this batter into the prepared spring form pan. Smooth top with a spatula. Spread the streusel topping (ingredients numbered 1, step 3) evenly over the cake. Sprinkle 1/4 cup blueberries all over the topping.

4. Bake at 350 F for about 50 – 55 minutes (start checking after 48 minutes) until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Let cool for 10 – 15 minutes in the pan, then remove the sides of the spring form pan and allow cake to cool completely before serving (about 1 –  2 hours). Store the cake in an air tight container. Best if consumed within 2 to 3 days.
