I've been making this blueberry cake for years. It works well as either a coffee cake or made into muffins.

This was very good and very easy. I used frozen blueberries which turned out great and actually made the mixing easier since the batter is so sticky. Read More

i've been thinking about making blueberry coffee cake for a couple of weeks, just for fun on a rainy sunday morning. found this one, read good reviews, but it was just okay for us. no one raved. the cake itself didn't have enough flavor, though the topping was yummy. i think i'll try another one next time.

Wow---this now takes the trophy over my grandmother's famous blueberry coffeecake. Very easy!! The key to the light moist texture I think is alternating mixing in the dry to the moist batter. Very very wonderful! Read More

Delicious and easy to make...I added blueberries on the bottom of my pan before adding the batter and then more on top before adding the topping. Therefore I used 1 1/2 cup of blueberries. Will definetly make it again. Thank you for sharing your recipe! Read More

Absolutely delcious! After reading the reviews, I made just a few changes: I used 1 cup of sugar in the cake batter. I also added approx 1/3 c sour cream & 1 tsp vanilla extract. I also used brown sugar in the topping instead of white. This cake is so good! I can't wait for my hubby to come home & try some....that is, if there's any left!!! Read More

This is a good recipe. I'm not a fan of blueberries so I used cranberries instead. Because cranberries are not as sweet I added 1/2 cup applesauce to the batter. This cut the tartness and fixed whatever thickness issues the others had becuase the batter was just fine. I put a layer of topping in the middle as well as on the top. My family enjoyed it and I'll use the recipe again. Thanks for sharing! Read More

Excellent. Tried it for company and got rave reviews. The only change I made was to use King Arthur's White Whole Wheat Flour since we like whole grains. Thank you for sharing. Read More

Oh so nice and easy and good but needs some flavoring so I like to add about 2 tsps. of lemon rind. This recipe also works for raspberries - frozen or fresh. Read More
