This has been a favorite that I've made a lot for the past 30 years. I have also used this batter to bake muffins. I entered the muffins in the County Fair and won the blue ribbon. This is an excellent recipe that can be made the night before and baked the next morning. Enjoy!

Blue Ribbon Recipe

Love blueberries and coffee cake? Then you have to try this recipe! The cake is not overly sweet. It's soft, tender, and melts in your mouth. There is the perfect amount of blueberries in the cake that you get one in each bite. Sugar sprinkled on top crisps in the baking process and adds a nice touch of sweetness.
