Blueberry Mini Cakes

I copied this from our old neighbor, Chris. I know it came from a respectable magazine so my lack of sufficient instructions comes from my laziness in copying. Sigh.

These look like muffins but as the name says, are really cake. Yummy.

Streusel Topping
3 Tbsp. flour
4 Tbsp. white sugar
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
2 Tbsp. butter
Mix flour, sugar & cinnamon in a small bowl. Cut in butter until fine crumbles. Set aside.

Cake:
1 3/4 cup flour
1/2 tsp. salt
2 tsp. baking powder
6 Tbsp. butter
1 cup sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
2 large eggs
1/2 cup milk
2/3 cup whole blueberries

Preheat oven to 375F. Line cupcake pans with paper liners.

In a medium bowl, sift flour, salt and baking powder. Set aside.

In a large mixer bowl, cream butter and sugar until fluffy. Add vanilla and eggs and beat well to blend. Mix in milk. Stir in flour, by hand, until just blended.

Drop a spoonful of the batter into each muffin cup. Add 2-3 blueberries and top with another teaspoon of batter. Be careful not to overfill the cups. Sprinkle streusel topping evenly over the cakes.

Bake 22 minutes

I think this will make 24 cupcakes. My original directions say to use mini-muffin pans. No quantities. It makes much more than 24 mini-muffins.
