Our extra-moist blueberry coffee cake recipe with crumb topping gets your day off to a sweet start. It’s a delicious complement to your morning coffee or tea. Use smaller size blueberries rather than larger ones to get a nice blend of both cake and fruit with each bite.
If you are using a coated, non-stick pan, lower the oven temperature to 335 degrees and bake a few minutes longer. It’s easy to tell if your blueberry coffee cake is done. Just stick a toothpick in the center; when the toothpick comes out clean, you’re ready for a scrumptious breakfast treat!
