I am a sucker for coffee cake, and summer is such a sweet time for blueberries. I love the crunchy exterior of this coffee cake and hope you do too!

  • 1 t baking powder
  • 1/4 t salt
  • 1 3/4 c flour
  • 1 pint fresh blueberries (or 1 c frozen blueberries)
  • 1/2 c chopped pecans

Then you will…

  2. In a large mixing bowl, cream the butter together with the sugar and 1/2 cup of the brown sugar. 
  3. Beat in the eggs.
  4. Then beat in the sour cream, vanilla, 1 teaspoon of the ground cinnamon, baking powder and salt.
  5. Beat in the flour until just blended.

  10. Gently spread the remaining batter in the pan.

Blueberry Coffee Cake

This recipe comes from my middle school cooking class.  I have made a few tweaks over the years to tone down the sweetness and let the blueberries shine through all the better. It makes a great addition to any weekend.

  • 1/2 c (1 stick) unsalted butter, divided
  • 1/2 c brown sugar
  • 1/2 c old-fashioned oats
  • 1 1/2 t ground cinnamon, divided
  • 1/4 t ground nutmeg
  • 2 c all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 c sugar

  2. In a small bowl, combine 1/4 of cold butter (cut into small pieces) with the brown sugar, oats, 1/2 teaspoon of the cinnamon and nutmeg. I recommend using your fingers to mix the ingredients together into a crumbly meal. Set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, combine the flour with the sugar, salt, baking powder, the remaining teaspoon, ginger and cloves.
  4. Melt the remaining butter and mix it into the flour mixture.
  5. Mix in the milk and vanilla extract until just combined.
