Irish BlackBerry Crumble Cake

Welcome to the Secret Recipe Club Reveal Day!  Let's just say I was pretty excited with my assigned blogger this month - Helen from Miz Helen's Country Cottage and I'm happy to be sharing today her Irish Blackberry Crumble Cake.

Miz Helen was one of the first blogs that I discovered when I started blogging.  I loved how welcoming she was and me, not being from the south, was introduced to some southern dishes along with some family history.  That why I selected this recipe - she talks about memories of going to her Irish grandparents and picking blackberries which is a tradition she carries on with her grandchildren.  I love seeing traditions passed on from generation to generation.

I followed this recipe exactly and did not substitute any ingredients - the only difference is that I divided it up in 6 small casserole dishes. I love the idea of having individual desserts and my family did too. The recipe above makes a 9x11 pan.

Since my daughter was visiting and had to leave early today we ended up having our dessert for breakfast!  You will love how easy this comes together and how tasty it is!  I know this one recipe that it a keeper to be be made again and again!  Great recipe Miz Helen!
