How To Make Blueberry Coffee Cake

For this delicious blueberry coffee cake that is loaded with a layer of blueberries and a crunchy topping, you need the following ingredients:

Crumb Topping

  • ½ cup packed brown sugar
  • ⅓ cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • ⅓ cup oats
  • ⅓ cup cold butter

Coffee Cake

  • ½ cup butter softened
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ¾ cup milk
  • 1 ½ – 2 cups blueberries

To make it, you start by preheating your oven to 350° Fahrenheit. Prepare a 9-inch springform pan by spraying a light layer of nonstick spray. (It’s best to use Baker’s Joy for this recipe.)

It might seem like working backwards, but the first thing to make is the topping. Combine brown sugar, 1/3 cup flour, cinnamon, oats, and cold butter in food processor and pulse until crumbly. Set aside. If you don’t have a food processor, combine the dry ingredients together and then “cut” the butter into it.

Next, in a mixing bowl, cream softened butter and sugar. Beat in the eggs, one at a time. Add the vanilla. Combine flour, baking powder, and salt and add it to the creamed mixture, alternating with milk. Mix well.

Spoon ⅔ of the batter into a greased 9-in springform pan. Sprinkle with ⅔ of the crumb topping. Top with blueberries followed by the remaining batter. Sprinkle crumb topping over cake.

Bake for 65 – 70 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing sides of the pan.
