Blackberry Tea Bread with a cinnamon Crumble topping

Yesterday it was so nice so we decided we would take the kids to the country park and feed the duck and check to see if the blackberries are ready,
 I kind of figured with all the rain and heat we have been having they might be ready a couple of weeks early and luckley they where so we picked a load.
I decided that I would do  tea bread with a crumble topping. 
If you dont like blackberries you could use blueberries instead.
Now because I am supposed to be taking it easy I had to do all my prep work at our dining room table needles to say I had some helpers.


What you need:
Tea bread
2 oz butter
7 oz caster sugar
1 egg
4 fl oz milk
9 oz plain flour
2 tsp baking powder
pinch salt
10 oz blackberries
Topping:
5 oz caster sugar
2 oz plain flour
1 tsp ground cinnamon
2 oz butter diced.

What you do:
Tea bread:
Preheat your oven to 190 o'C and grease a baking dish with butter. I used our large baking dish I am not sure what size it is but the smallest size I recommend for this is about 9 in.

In a large bowl beat your sugar and butter together until light and fluffy.
Beat in your egg.
 Beat in your milk.

Fold in your flour and baking powder until just combined.
Fold in your blackberries. Don't worry if some of your blackberries get squished it wont hurt the mix.

Gentley pour into your prepared dish and level out.

Topping:
In a bowl put your sugar, flour and cinnamon and mix to combine.
 Add your butter and using your hands rub together until you have bread crumbs. Do not worry about having large lumps.

Sprinkle ontop of your tea bread mix
and place in the oven and bake for 50 to 60 minutes or until the skewer comes out clean.

Leave to cool in the dish. then slice and serve. I sliced any that was left over and put in a tub, not that it will last long in this house.



Happy Baking
