Peaches and blueberries are plentiful this time of year at local farm stands and markets.

Here’s a cake that blends both in a yummy, summertime way!

Blueberry Peach Crumb Cake

3/4 cup light brown sugar
1 large egg
2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon aluminum-free baking powder
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1 cup buttermilk
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

In a mixer, mix together butter, brown sugar and egg until smooth.

In a separate bowl, combine dry ingredients. Add to the mixture; stir just until combined.

Add buttermilk and vanilla extract. Stir until well incorporated.

Carefully fold in blueberries.

Carefully spread mixture in a greased 9 x 13-inch baking pan. Insert peach slices every couple of inches into batter.
