Blueberry Crumb Topping Cake Recipe

This is a delicious and easy to make blueberry cake recipe. You can use fresh or frozen blueberries. I really enjoy the crumb topping on this cake!

Blueberry Crumb Topping Cake

1/2 cup vegetable shortening
1 1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 cup milk
2 large eggs
4 cups all purpose flour
4 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
4 cups fresh or frozen blueberries

In a large bowl, cream shortening with the granulated sugar. Beat well and then add the eggs. Beat mixture for 2 minutes. Stir in the dry ingredients, alternately with a little milk after each addition, beat batter until smooth. Fold in the blueberries. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and let it heat up while you make the crumb topping.
