Blueberry and Blackberry Streusel Cake

Another recipe from the caked crusader this week! I had to wait in for a package on Monday, and it was my turn to bake for movie night, so I had to make do with what was in my fridge. A quick scroll through the caked crusader's blog and I found this recipe which fit my requirements!

Blueberry and Blackberry Streusel Cake
For the streusel:
50g plain flour
50g unsalted butter
50g caster sugar
50g hazelnuts (optional)

For the cake:
175g unsalted butter, at room temperature

175g caster sugar

3 eggs

175g self raising flour
1 teaspoon vanilla extract (optional)

1 teaspoon baking powder

200g blackberries

100g blueberries

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
50g hazelnuts (optional)
 I didn't have any hazelnuts in at the time of making this cake, so omitted them from the recipe. I also added a teaspoon of vanilla extract just to give the sponge some extra flavour.

I was worried that the cake might be a little dry as I didn't have enough fruit, so I bought some custard to serve with mine. Some had theirs without though, so I'm sure this cake is fine on its own!
