Hi Angie, thank you for welcoming me back; I've been away for so long, I almost forgot how to post...well, somewhat, after not even checking my own blog for all these months!
I did go on your Google + page and tracked back to the last six months of all the amazing, and delicious creations and desserts you've made.

I adore this gorgeous and superb blueberrry cake...especially the crunchy crumb topping. The spelt flour really gives it a healthy and moist texture! You will be seeing me more often from now on! xo

This is such a beautiful cake to use blueberries in.... what can I use to substitute 'spelt' that is very hard, if not impossible, to find where I live. I'd love to make this blueberry cake. Thanks Angie!
