Side note, I’m not coffee cake connoisseur, but I always assumed coffee cake just meant it had the brown sugar/cinnamon/butter filling in a middle layer. I’ve noticed a lot of recipe call themselves coffee cake even if they don’t have that and opt for the streusel topping. Regardless of what actually defines coffee cake I’m still on a quest to try various coffee cake recipes. I love blueberry muffins so I got excited when I ran across this particular recipe.
For starters, it’s very easy. Again, you’re making a cake so you cream the butter and sugar together, add eggs, vanilla, and lemon zest and then add your pre-mixed dry ingredients (alternating with the milk). Once everything is mixed then fold in the fresh blueberries and add the streusel.
I decided to make a half batch and since there were only 2 eggs it was super easy. It ended up making an 8×8 pan and I cooked it for 35 minutes rather than what was listed. I looked really pretty and so far has been my personal favorite, but again, I love blueberry muffins so I had a feeling this might be a favorite!
