Beat egg and vanilla together; stir into the crumb mixture until a dough forms. Press into the bottom of the prepared tin.

  4. Sprinkle blueberries over the base. Combine the 4 tablespoons sugar and nutmeg; sprinkle over the blueberries.

  5. Make the topping: In a medium bowl, cream together the 5 tablespoons butter and dark brown soft sugar until smooth. Mix in the flour, so that the mixture is crumbly. Sprinkle over the blueberry layer.

  6. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes in the preheated oven, until browned. Cool and then dust with icing sugar before cutting into slices.
