February 16, 2015


blueberry crumb phoebespurefoodConfession time: As much as we’re fans of chai and fall and squashy stuff, the pumpkin spice everything craze is starting to feel stale. In rebellion, we’re dreaming of—and eating—berries while dreaming of the approaching spring.

If you want something fruity and cakey, this blueberry crumb cake is just the thing to brighten your day. It’s infused with orange tea and a little bit of spice, giving it a subtle complexity you’re going to adore.

Plus, crumbs! We love anything with crumbs.

Serve this gluten-free and vegan beauty at your next brunch, or be understandably selfish and keep it all to yourself. We won’t tell.
