Tips for making Blueberry Muffin Streusel Cake
What I especially love about Swerve is that they make a brown sugar substitute that’s just like the real thing and perfect for baking.
Fresh or frozen blueberries? You can make this easy brunch recipe with frozen blueberries, too. Thaw the berries and pour off any juice before mixing them into the batter.
My favorite is Bob’s Red Mill Gluten-Free 1-to-1 Baking Flour because you can use it just like regular flour.

Nut free? It's OK to leave out the pecans from the streusel topping. You can make a little more topping if you want to make up for not adding the nuts. But it's not necessary.
Perfect for potlucks! If you’re bringing a pan of blueberry streusel cake to a work meeting or a play date, you’ll want to use an insulated potluck carrier to transport it safely and keep it warm.
I love the Rachel Ray Expandable Lasagna Lugger since it can be used to transport hot and cold foods. You can also use it to carry two dishes to the party or just use it for one dish. Super versatile!
Don’t forget to bring a cake server with you to the party. Nothing worse than trying to serve up the streusel cake with a dull plastic knife.
