BRUNCH - crumb cake

This fresh-baked cake will fill your home with the inviting smell of cinnamon. Don't be put off by the length of the directions. It really is quite simple to make and will taste fabulous! If you don't have Bisquick on hand, use the substitue recipe in yesterday's (bacon pie) post. Please do not substitue margarine for butter. In this recipe, it really does make a difference.
Crumb Cake
1/2 cup butter (soft, but still cold)
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 cups Bisquick
2 tsp cinnamon
Use a pastry blender or 2 forks to combine all ingredients until mixed well
Set aside
1/2 cup butter
1 cup sugar
2 large eggs
3/4 cup milk
2 cups flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries (optional)
