This is my little gift to thank you for 100 followers on tumblr! You are all such lovely people, thank you so much for being here <3

blueberry crumb bars

3 cups flour (I used 1 cup oat flour here)
1 tbsp baking powder
½ tbsp. salt
1 cup brown sugar
zest of 1 lemon
250g butter, room temperature / margarine

500g blueberries (about 3 cups)
100g sugar
3 tbsp flour

mix the dry ingredients for the cake + zest in a bowl
add cubed butter/margarine and mix in with your hands until it forms crumbs
mix the blueberries, sugar and flour for the filling
line a 25cm/10” square pan with baking parchment
put 2/3 of the crumbs into the pan, toss the blueberries over it and then sprinkle with the rest of the crumbs
bake in an oven preheated to 190C for 40 minutes
serve chilled – I used some simple powdered sugar & lemon juice on the top of the cake to add some lemony sweetness
