instructions

Place the blueberries in a saucepan, add sugar and potato starch. Heat over a medium heat until the sugar dissolves.

In a large bowl, beat sugar and butter, add salt and vanilla extract. Add the first egg and a portion of the flour and stir. Repeat this until all eggs and the flour are mixed evenly.
Grease a 23 x 23 cm cake pan with butter and spread the dough. Bake for 15 minutes at 200°C.

Prepare the streusel, place all the ingredients in a bowl and using your fingers mix until you become a crumble.

Remove the cake from the oven, add blueberries and sprinkle with streusel. Transfer into the oven and bake for 20 minutes more. Enjoy!
