For the cake

Nonstick cooking spray
255g soft flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp ground ginger
60g unsalted butter, room temperature
150g granulated sugar
1 large egg
120ml whole milk
425g fresh whole blueberries

For the topping

100g granulated sugar
45g soft flour
1/2 tsp freshly ground nutmeg
60g unsalted butter, chilled and cubed
For the cake:

1) Preheat the oven to 190C/Gas 5. Spray a 23 by 23cm glass baking dish with nonstick spray and set aside.

2) In a medium mixing bowl whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt and ground ginger. Set aside.

3) In the bowl of a stand mixer, with the paddle attachment, beat together the butter and sugar on medium speed until light and fluffy, approximately 1 min. Add the egg and beat until well incorporated, approximately 30 secs. Add 1/3 of the flour mixture and beat on low speed just until incorporated and then add 1/3 of the milk and beat until incorporated. Repeat, alternating flour and milk until everything has combined. Gently stir in the blueberries and pour the mixture into the prepared baking dish.

4) Sprinkle the topping on top of the cake and bake on the middle rack of the oven for 35 mins or until golden in colour.

5) Cool for at least 10 mins before serving.

For the topping:

1) In a small bowl combine the sugar, flour and nutmeg. Add the butter and work into the dry ingredients using a fork to combine. Continue until the mixture has a crumb-like texture.
