Fun fact: Bethany and are terrified of the movie Willy Wonka and The Chocolate Factory.
. That movie used to give me nightmares when I was little, all thanks to the creepy oompa loompas. Is it just me or are they pretty scary? Well, you’re probably thinking, “now what the heck does this have to do with Lemon Blueberry Crumb Cake?”
Ummm well, in that movie, there is a girl that turns into a blueberry and that’s how it relates to this recipe. Sorry for that randomness but at least I sorta tied it into today’s recipe! Okay now enough small talk, on to the star of the show AKA this bae.
I’m pretty sure I’ve mentioned at least 20 times, but every summer my Mom buys over 50 pounds of fresh blueberries to make blueberry pies for the year and stores them in the freezer. Yes 50 POUNDS of the biggest, sweetest and juiciest blueberries known-to-man! About 30 pounds go towards the pies, 10 go towards other blueberry-like recipe creations like this one and the leftovers, well, they go in my mouth😏.
I’ve actually wanted to make a crumb cake in a mug for such a long time now. So the last time I tried out a similar recipe, it turned out perfectly until I dropped it right before it was ready to be photographed 😤. So of course I had to try again because failure is NOT an option. So I made it and now I can’t stop making it. It’s my favorite mug creation so far…
