Tasty Tuesday!

March 31, 2009 by Michelle

There are some things that are worth getting up early for. Mind you – there aren’t many, but there are some. My mom’s blueberry streusel coffee cake is one of them. Fortunately, it’s super easy to make and put together, so I can then go back to bed for forty-five minutes while it bakes. Except that I can’t sleep because my house then smells so good. My mom may not be a good cook, but this is one special recipe.

Blueberry Streusel Coffee Cake


3/4 c sugar
1/4 c butter
1 egg
1/2 c milk
1/2 t almond extract
2 c flour
2 t baking powder
1/4 t salt
2 c blueberries (fresh or frozen — I always add extra)

1/4 c sugar
1/4 c brown sugar
1/3 c flour
1/2 t cinnamon
1/4 c butter

(I always add just a little nutmeg to the batter and topping because nutmeg makes everything taste better!)

Preheat oven to 370 degrees.

Beat sugar, butter and egg until they are creamy, about three or four minutes. Add milk and almond extract and mix well. Add baking powder, salt and flour, and mix gently until not quite just combined. Fold in blueberries.

Pour batter into a 10″ springform pan.

Make the topping by mixing sugars, flour and cinnamon. Cut in the cold butter until crumbly. Crumble over the batter.

Bake at 370 degrees for 45 or so minutes (my oven always takes a little longer).

    Sounds great! I could eat streusel (I call it “crisp”) topping till I just make myself ill. Love it!

  • Swishy

    Oh, my gosh, that sounds soooo good!

    Liz – It IS yummy. Breakfast lunch and dinner yummy, in fact!

    MaBunny – Oooo blueberry buckle sounds pretty tasty, too. You’ll have to share that one.

    Samantha – Defintely try it. I’d love to know what you think.

    septembermom – Aww, you’re so sweet! It doesn’t always please a crowd though. More than six people and not everyone gets seconds 😉

    Heather – Make a run to Costco. Those frozen blueberries are perfect.

    Kristen – Of course. I hope you enjoy it.

    Mama Kat – See! I’m not the only one 🙂

    Kara – Yup. Except you *can* overdo the almond but never the blueberries!

    Lisa – Every week!

    Angie – Go for it. Blueberries make everything better.

    Lori – Oh good. I’m not the only one with the mysterious bag of frozen blueberries. Mine had been there for quite awhile, I think.

    RAS – I haven’t tried it, but I will next time perhaps. I have some in my pantry. Let me know if you try it that way.

    Angela – I SWEAR I’ve never doubled the streusel topping for this one. And only put about 80% of it on the coffeecake and eaten the rest. I’ve never do that!

    Swishy – It is. And so easy to make….
