Blueberry Crumb Cake 1

Dearest brought home some blueberries from a gentleman he met through work. This kind man has been sharing the fruit of his garden and even some of the plants with us. I thought I’d make this cake for Dearest to enjoy when he came home from work. The recipe is from Ina Garten – I added a wee bit more cinnamon.
