I'm one of those people who lives to eat rather than eating to live. I love good food, and I love sharing healthy and delicious recipes.

Blueberry crumbly cake fresh out of the oven...and it smells so good!

This Crumbly Cake Will Quickly Become a House Favorite

This recipe has been a favorite in my family for generations, and I can almost guarantee that once you try it, it will be a favorite in your house too.

The combination of delicious fruit and the crisp crunchy and sweet oatmeal topping will win over your taste buds with your first bite.

This crumbly cake works great as a dessert, but has the basic components of a delicious breakfast as well, so it is a pretty versatile recipe.

Go ahead and enjoy it at any time of the day!

Fresh peaches are a perfect addition to a crumbly cake.


What fruits work the best in a crumbly cake?

One reason that I love this recipe is because it works with a wide variety of fruits and berries (basically any fruit or berry that you could picture in a cobbler).

This makes it perfect for those times during the summer when you are trying to figure out what to do with all that fresh fruit that you just picked in your back yard or bought at your local farmer's market.

Of course, crumbly cake is a tasty warm treat on a cold winter day too, so don't be afraid to throw in some canned fruit if you don't have any fresh fruit available.

Growing up in Washington state, we often had blackberries, cherries, and apples coming out our ears, so those were some of our favorites. Peach or pear crumbly cakes are absolutely delicious too.

Last year I made a crumbly cake that had a mix of apricots and raspberries in it, and it was fantastic.

Be creative, and come up with your own unique combinations of fruits and berries to see what kind of crumbly cake is your favorite!

Everybody loves to see the fruits of their labors pay off after picking and pitting cherries.

A Recipe So Simple That Even a Child Can Make It

I'm not exaggerating when I say this recipe is super-easy. I used to make it all the time when I was a kid.

Of course if there is going to be some slicing of fruit required an adult's assistance is advisable, but if you are using fresh berries or peaches from a can, a child could totally make this recipe with little to no help from mom and dad.
