Blueberry Lemon slices with crumble

A warm hello to first 4 followers I have! <3
I hope you enjoy it here and enjoy the recipes I post.

Since last spring I evolved an addiction for blueberries and I'm constantly trying new recipe. Unfortunately blueberries are pretty expensive here in Switzerland so I can't buy them as much as I want. On Saturday I allowed myself to buy some and I made those yummy blueberry lemon slices.


Blueberry Lemon Slices with Crumble
addapted from Taylor takes a taste

For the crumble topping
60g all-purpose flour
75g sugar
55g butter at room temperature
Zest of 1 lemon
1 pinch salt

In a small bowl, mix the flour, sugar, salt and lemon zest. Using a fork or your fingers, mix in the butter until crumbs form. Put crumbs in the fridge.

For the cake
180g flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1 pinch of salt
1/4 tsp freshly grated nutmeg
90g butter at room temperature
170g sugar
2 eggs
zest of 1 lemon
90g plain yogurt 
150g blueberries

In a large bowl, mix together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and nutmeg.
In a another bowl, cream together the butter, sugar and lemon zest with a handmixer or kitchen aid till light and fluffy. Add eggs and mix until well blended. Add 1/3 of the dry ingredients and 1/2 of the yogurt and mix. Then add another 1/3 of the dry ingredients and the rest of the yogurt and mix again. In the end add the remaining dry ingridients. Mix.
Gently mix in the blueberrys with a spatula.

Spread the cake batter in a square baking container and spread the crumbs over the cake batter.
Bake in the oven at 180° for 40-45 minutes (depends on your oven) until it starts to brown and tooth pick comes out clean.
While baking prepare the lemon sirup.

For the lemon sirup
Juice of 2 lemons
70g sugar

In a saucepan, bring the sugar and lemon juice to boil. Reduce to simmer and cook 8-10 minutes until a syrup has formed.
When the cake is finished, pour the sirup over the cake.

Let it cool, cut in squares and enjoy :)
