Blueberry Buckle Coffee Cake

A few years ago, my parents where coming for a visit and I was looking for some sort of coffee cake to make for my Dad who loves blueberries. I found a blueberry buckle recipe that sounded promising and I did make it but it turned out to be a bit bland, so I adapted the recipe to have a bit more blueberries and a bit more flavor by adding vanilla and lemon and the brown sugar and cinnamon in the streusel topping. This is what I ended up with and my family couldn't get enough. I hope you like it as much as we do.
