Blueberry Coffee Cake

If you're new here, you may want to subscribe to my RSS feed. Thanks for visiting!

This coffee cake could accurately be called multi-purpose cake, because it is definitely suitable for many occasions. It is definitely delicious as a breakfast coffee cake. But it also works well as a snack cake or even a dessert. The texture is light and fluffy and just overflowing with blueberries. It is not too sweet for breakfast and just sweet enough to satisfy for dessert. I love double-duty food like that!


Ordinarily I use fresh blueberries in this recipe, but you could easily use frozen ones too, just do NOT thaw them before baking.


Blueberry Coffee Cake

  • 2 c. flour
  • 1 1/2 c. sugar
  • 1/2 c. butter or margarine, cut into small pieces
  • 1 t. baking powder
  • 2 eggs, separated
  • 1 c. milk
  • 1 t. vanilla
  • 2 – 2 1/2 c. blueberries

1. In a large mixing bowl, combine flour and sugar. Cut in butter or margarine, or mix with an electric mixer on low speed, until crumbly. Reserve 3/4 c. crumb mixture for topping.

2. To the remaining mixture, add baking powder, egg yolks (reserve whites in a separate bowl), milk and vanilla. Beat until combined, about 1 minute.

3. Whisk the reserved egg whites until soft peaks form. Gently fold into the batter.

4. Pour the batter into a greased 13×9 casserole dish. Cover with bluberries. Sprinkle reserved crumb mixture over the blueberries. Bake at 350 degrees for 35 – 40 minutes, until lightly browned and fully cooked.

    This recipe was fantastic! I altered it a little bit and divided the batter into two 9 inch pie plates. I added chocolate chips to one and blueberries to the other.

    Making some whipped butter with cinnamon sugar to go with. It’s in the oven right now. :)

    It’s soooo good. I put way too many blueberries in, but I definitely recommend the cinnamon butter.

    Just baked this cake and it took longer to bake than I expected. It did not brown on top like I thought it would. But it still is delicious. I cut out one half cup sugar and it was still very good.
