A blueberry coffee cake recipe made with butter, sugar, eggs, and milk, blueberry pie filling, and a butter crumb topping. Serve for breakfast or brunch.
Long past it seems are the days where you would get invited over to a neighbor’s house for coffee and cake in the afternoon to share the local happenings. These days most people just end up at their local Starbucks for their coffee and sweets. The times may have changed, but I urge you to resurrect this recipe because it is just so good!
Delicious Butter Crumb Topping
The streusel butter crumb topping melts in your mouth and compliments the sweetened blueberries. The cake itself is firmer and has a slight spring to it to support the weight of the blueberry filling.
If you think this makes too much cake for you, bring the rest of it to work and place it in the break room next to the coffee pot. It will disappear quick. In fact, your co-workers might ask you to make another one for the next day.
Serve this blueberry coffee cake warm from the oven. You can scoop out servings with a spoon or wait until it has cooled and cut into squares. The best part is that by making it yourself, you get to enjoy more than one piece.
You can serve this for dessert, a morning coffee break, breakfast or brunch.
