This was good, but I made the following modifications: (1) I halved the streusel topping (and there was still some left over), (2) I used 3/4 cup milk because I thought the batter looked too dry - depends on how you like your coffee cake I suppose, (3) I used 1 1/2 cups blueberries and folded them into the batter before spreading into baking dish, (4) I spread half the batter in the dish and then sprinkled some streusel topping in the middle, then put the remaining batter on top and covered in streusel, (5) I used a 9x13 glass baking dish, baked it at 325 for about 25 mins (until golden brown)
I was comparing blueberry cake recipes and noticed that this recipe is exactly the same as a blueberry muffin recipe I received in a baking class I took at a culinary school. There were only 2 differences. One, this recipe is half the recipe we made. The second is that all the ingredients were cut in half except the flour. The class recipe called for 3 cups of flour. Here it calls for 2 cups instead of 1 1/2 cups. That is probably the reason people are saying it's dry--too much flour.
I followed others' suggestions and used 3/4 c. buttermilk instead of 1/2 c. milk and increased the blueberries to 1 1/2 cups. I also sprinkled some of the streusel over the blueberry layer and made it in a springform pan. It was delicious! I took it to a garden club event. Everyone gave it rave reviews, and a customer offered to buy half of it from me.
I followed the recipe as it was written and this coffee cake turned out only average. I don't think you should rate a recipe 5 stars if you had to make changes to get it there. That's just saying the original recipe wasn't worth 5 stars in the first place, and all those reviews about changing this or changing that were completely confusing. I think I would rather find a blueberry muffin or cake recipe that is worth 5 stars on its own.
This cake was a big hit with my picky husband and 9 year old son!! I've also brought it to work and to church, and people always ask for the recipe. I followed previous suggestions: increased milk to 3/4 cup, used a 9" springform pan, and put half of the topping on top of the fruit layer. Instead of fresh berries, I used a 15 oz. can of Oregon blueberries (drained) which works really well. Alternately, a can of drained peaches tossed with 1/2 tsp. cinnamon and some sugar also tastes great. I find that the cake tastes best when warm, so zapping it in the microwave the next day for a few seconds does the trick :-)
I read all the wonderful reviews about this recipe and tried it this morning to take to my son's little league game to share with the moms. OH MY GOSH! WONDERFUL! I used canola oil in place of the butter in the recipe batter and it turned out wonderful and moist! I also used 3/4 cup of milk like others had said, and put some streusel in the middle with the berries too. My friends devoured it! Thanks so much!
I made this using 1 cup of milk and I pressed the brown sugar mixture into the bottom of a tube pan and it made a nice topping when I flipped the pan over! The cake was moist and delicious! I will make this again!
AMAZING!!!!!! Firstly I screwed up b/c I baked it in a 9 by 13 pan and misjudged the measurements - I thought 1.5 times the recipe woudl be sufficient but it wasn't - next time i'll try double the recipe. Also I used canned peaches sliced thinnly instead of blueberries:) I did put half the streudel in the middle - so then there wasn't enough on top - so the top layer came out swirled with the cake batter. My friend had some and said it is his FAVORITE out of everything I have ever baked including cheesecakes cookies cakes pies!!!!!!! (I bake a lot - have made maybe 50 different things from this website:) But keep in mind that's b/c he doesn't like overly sweet desserts chocolate and adores cinnamon and peaches:) Also I made it low fat and low cholestrol by using "I can't believe it's not butter in place of butter fat free milk and eggbeaters:) (b/c all my friends are complaining i'm making them fat with all my baking) and it turned out so well...i think it just gives it a lighter cake - not as dense and rich:) A definitely must try if you love fruit desserts!:)
