This recipe has been a personal favorite of mine and I have been making it for years. In my previous job, I always made this recipe on my birthday to share with my coworkers. I love making it with fresh blueberries. And it just doesn’t last long in our house! (Recipe is at the end)

And just because it is called coffee cake does not mean coffee is in the recipe. It is called coffee cake because it pairs very nicely with a cup of coffee. I love to double the recipe and put one of the coffee cakes in the freezer to be served at a later time. Frozen blueberries work but fresh in-season blueberries is the best.  Hope you enjoy!

Combine flour, salt, sugar and baking powder
The next step is to cut in the butter or margarine. Use a cutting type action until mixture is crumbly.


Make a well in mixture and pour milk, eggs and vanilla. Stir just until moistened.

Add in blueberries and then pour mixture into a 13 x 9 pan. The pictures show a double batch. Mix together topping of brown sugar, melted butter, sugar, nuts and cinnamon and spread on top.

Bake at 350 degrees for 35 minutes. Enjoy!

  1. That looks and sounds delicious! I have found living in southern California that not all blueberries are created equal. The ones we used to get in Michigan were the twice the size as the ones we get here and had much better flavor. Just stopping by from the GRAND Social Linky Party. Hope you get a chance to do the same!
