Blackberry Crumb Cake = YUM

The apparently wild blackberries around our house have become pickable this week, so Cadence and I have been on a few expeditions to harvest them.  I wanted to make this crumb cake from Real Simple - I made it last summer with frozen blackberries from our old neighbors and was eager to try it with fresh from our yard fruit! 

We didn't have enough berries and I wanted to make it in a loaf pan so I halved the recipe.  I am often halving recipes, and am very grateful for my 1/8 cup measuring cup. 

We dug into it after lunch today.  Cadence was a fan - the blackberries turned purple in the cake!

Love, Mom
