The aroma of this cake is heavenly, and the taste is scrumptious! It's wonderful with mid-morning coffee. You can also serve it at brunch, or with ice cream as a dessert. The blueberries help make this a special treat.

This cake was delicious! Kudos to the master chef, I don't understand the troubles and woes to the testers, this recipe was easy and "breezy" shall I say. My 7 year old even ate this with the walnuts upon the top. What I did was put the walnuts in my mini Kitchen Aid processor and she never new they were there, she even said she loved the topping. I do suggest baking this on a lower rack in the oven, because of the fullness of the cake, to cook thru the middle evenly. I made one, we ate it; then I had to make another that evening.Thank you .

This cake is great. the first time i made it the center wasnt cooked though. So I usually put the cake in the oven for about 5 minutes before i add the topping. then i leave the cake in an extra ten minutes. that ensures the centers done without burning the topping. Boyfriend and family love it Read More

I'd give this recipe more than 5 stars if I could. Made it for a co-worker's birthday this morning. The batter is really thick and the topping is almost glue like but man-o-man the end result is fantastic. Another co-worker told me 'he was in heaven' and yet another told me it was 'unbelievable'. I did cook it an additional 5 minutes and it was perfection. Give it a try - you won't regret it. Read More

I'm not exactly sure what I did wrong but I couldn't "sprinkle" the topping on, it was quite gooey when I mixed everything together, which indicated to me this was not going to come out right. The cake took twice as long to bake and now I have burnt, cement-like edges and the center is more like pudding. Maybe someday I'll make another attempt. Thanks anyway. Read More

I just pulled my coffee cake out of the oven. It looks scrumptious after 25 minute baking time. Given the reviews concerning the texture of the topping, I did not melt the butter prior to mixing with other topping ingredients. I used a margarine that is recommended for baking. I let it sit out of fridge for a few minutes to soften. I cut it into small slices. I then mixed it vigorosly with the topping ingredients. This created a crumbly mixture that I could easily spread evenly over the cake. It turned out well... Read More

I got this recipe in the "taste of home" cookbook a few years ago, and everyone loves it! I have used different fruits in it (apples, pears, peaches and cranberries) with equal satisfaction. I have shared the recipe with friends and family. Read More
