Streusel cakes come in all sorts of variations and are always very popular. This one baked with spelt flour and blackberries is delicious for the whole family. This coffee cake recipe combines a fluffy, tender butter sponge cake base, while a traditional one usually features a yeasted batter, and a streusel pastry. The sweet, sour taste of the wild blackberries hidden under a thick layer of crispy crumble pastry goes perfectly with the sweetness and richness of butter cake. Although it has a really fancy look, this cake is actually fairly easy to make!

  • 300 g Blackberries
  • 120 g Butter, softened
  • 120 g Caster sugar
  • 2 Large eggs, at room-temperature
  • 1 tsp Vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp Baking powder
  • 200 g White spelt flour
  • A pinch of salt
  • 80 ml Wholemilk, at room-temperature
  • 100 g White spelt flour
  • 20 g Hazelnuts, chopped
  • 75 g Sugar
  • 75 g Butter, softened
  1. Preheat the oven to 180C/350F. Lightly butter a 24-26 cm / 8-10 inch heart-shaped or round spring-form pan. Line the bottom with a piece of baking paper.
  2. Rinse the blackberries briefly under cold water in a sieve and drain on the paper towels. Beat the softened butter with the sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs and vanilla extract. Mix the flour with the baking powder and pinch of salt in a bowl.
  3. Stir in half of the flour mixture until roughly combined, followed by the milk, and then the remaining half of the flour mixture. Stir until just combined. Spread the batter evenly into the prepared baking pan and place the blackberries over the cake batter.
  4. Combine the flour, hazelnuts and sugar in a bowl. Add the butter and use your fingertips to rub the butter into the flour mixture until it resembles coarse breadcrumbs. Sprinkle the crumble mixture over the blackberries.
  5. Bake the streusel cake on the middle shelf for about 45 minutes or until the top is golden brown and a skewer inserted in the centre comes out clean. Cool in the pan for 5 minutes. Turn onto a wire rack. Serve warm or at room temperature.

Rarely take streusel cake. As matter of fact, I rarely take cakes as not a big fan of sweet dessert. Once in a while it is ok.

Margaret D 15/7/22 06:41

There are no blackberries like the fresh ones we pick. Lovely strudel.

Anne in the kitchen 15/7/22 06:55

This looks like a delicious summer treat!

Lola Martínez 15/7/22 09:03

Las moras son tan bonitas que hacen vistoso cualquier pastel que las contenga. Me gusta también la cubierta crumble que llevan, los bizcochos quedan aún más ricos con ella. Una delicia en su conjunto.
Un beso.

Good morning, I just love the photography in your posts-so beautiful. I love desserts like this too, looks like a yummy recipe. when we lived at our woods home the wild blackberries were abundant-I would pick lots of them when they were nice and had gotten enough rain. Happy Friday and weekend

Pam 15/7/22 19:23

STUNNING!!!!! Seriously.

David 15/7/22 20:37

Angie, I personally would love this blackberry streusel cake. Love blackberries and adore streusel! The problem is that my better half doesn't like berries with seeds that get stuck in her teeth. Bad news for me! FYI, not everything in an antique mall is expensive. Our purchases came to less than $15.00. Take Care, Big Daddy Dave

Angie, I love good cake like this one! Fresh blackberries, healthy flours. Not too sweet. Nice!

Valentina 16/7/22 04:40

Oh how delicious! And looks like you're fortunate enough to pick your own berries. I love that. I'd love a slice for breakfast with my coffee. :-) ~Valentina

mjskit 16/7/22 04:51

Just seeing these blackberries takes me back to the long ago days of my childhood when picking berries was part of summer and we would come home with stained fingers and faces.
