Lemon Blueberry Cake

lemon_blueberry5 
I'm a spontaneous baker.  My husband calls me the "midnight baker" because that's usually about the time that I like to start baking.  I know, weirdo :)  I don't ever plan on what to bake, I usually just look what I have in the kitchen and bake with what I have.  This day, however, I was at Whole Foods and these blueberries were looking so yummy so I grabbed them and walked towards the lemons which looked equally as good and decided right then that I need to bake a Lemon Blueberry something.  I usually like to make lemon bars when the lemons are looking as good as these but this time I felt like cake and searched Food Gawker for the perfect recipe which I found on Kitchen Runway.  It just looked delicious and crumb topping gets me everytime! (I skipped the glaze because I didn't want the extra sweetness)

Definitely a winner! And perfect with a cup of coffee.  I've bookmarked this one to make another time.
