berry crumble cake

I can’t help myself but eating berries every day in summer is just my fave! so when it comes to baking in summer I tend to always go with berries…

my husband works as a constructing engeneer and in his office it’s kind of business to bring something to eat as a “mid-morning-snack” when you go or come from a vacay.

in Switzerland we call this mid-morning-snack “Znüni” – what literally means “at nine”, so usually we eat it at nine! the “Znüni” is what ever you like; an apple, a sandwich, a yogurt or just cake. so long story short: he asked me to bake something for the office and I pleasantly accepted ❤

as I already told you – I love berries – it was an easy one to choose what to bake: the berry crumble cake. it was the first time I tried it but I am very happy about how it turned out. the recipe is quite easy and you can’t really do something wrong.

in a large bowl, mix butter, sugar and salt and mix one egg at a time to it until you have a light fluffy batter. slowly stir in the lemon juice and zest as well as the milk. sift in the flour and baking powder and give it a stir until everything is well combined. prepare a brownie tin (I used a tin that is 30x30cm) with butter and flour and spread the butter in it. dispense the berries and top it with the prepared crumble. bake for about 30 – 40 minutes in the preheated oven at 200°C.
