Preheat oven 350 degrees.  In medium bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. In a large bowl, using an electric mixer on medium speed, beat butter and sugar until creamy, 1 to 2 minutes.  Add egg and vanilla and beat until smooth.  On low speed, beat in dry ingredients alternately with milk, starting and ending with dry ingredients, until blended.
To make topping, in small bowl, combine flour, brown sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg. Add butter and cut in with a pastry blender until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.  Stir in nuts.
Spread batter into a lightly sprayed or oiled 8-by-8 inch baking dish. Sprinkle blueberries evenly over batter. Sprinkle topping over blueberries. Bake until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, 45 to 50 minutes.

Bon appetite!
