I was looking for a coffeecake type recipe using blueberries to bring to Sunday Morning Coffe Hour at our Church and found Country Morning Cake. I substituted fresh blueberries for the raisins and it turned out GREAT! I received many compliments and was asked twice for the recipe. Be aware though that the dough is more like a sugar cookie rather than a cake batter. Don't let this bother you it was very moist. Even my kids liked it and asked if I could make another one tomorrow! Read More

End result was good but was very nervous during prep. Batter was very thick and hard to spread. Also tried to use 9 inch pan--will use 8 inch next time. 9 inch pan was so big that I only made one layer of the cake... Read More

This was easy and OK but honestly there are other coffee cakes that I like better. I baked this in an 8" spring form pan there didn't seem to be much batter and as a result the cake didn't have much height. I did have a few cherry craisins left so I mixed them in with the raisins. If I were to make this again I think I'd double the recipe (but probably not the sugar topping and the raisins) and cook it in a 9" spring form pan just to get more "cake." Read More
