Blue Ribbon Recipe by

After trying several different combinations, I have finally created the best blueberry coffee cake recipe ever. This cake is so moist, with tidbits of sweet crunch from the streusel, and a layer of gooey blueberry goodness. You can bake this recipe in a cake pan, a loaf pan, or in a muffin pan (cooking time will vary). TIPS: I use a loaf pan. Fresh blueberries can be used as well. It will seem like the batter is not enough, but it will bake perfectly. Also, if the batter is a little thick, just add a little more milk. I am sure this recipe will also work with other flavor berries.

A terrific coffee cake for breakfast or brunch. It's moist, soft, and fluffy. The streusel adds a delicious crunchy texture. There are pops of sweet and tart blueberries in every bite. Yum!

How To Make bang'n blueberry coffee cake

  • Greasing a pan.

  • Preparing the blueberry syrup in a saucepan.
    In a small saucepan, heat half the blueberries and 1 tsp of sugar over medium heat. Occasionally mash the berries. Heat until berries turn into a slightly thick syrup. Remove from heat and set aside.
  • Cake ingredients mixed together in a bowl.
    In a small bowl, sift flour with baking powder and salt. In a medium bowl, mix together beaten egg and 3/4 cup sugar and 1/3 cup melted butter. Add milk and vanilla. Stir in flour mixture and mix well.

    Pour 1/2 the batter into a greased and floured pan. Sprinkle with remaining blueberries and half the streusel topping.
