How to Make Blueberry Coffee Cake

For the Cake:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and line a 9″ springform pan with parchment paper on the bottom, lightly greasing the sides.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the canola oil, Greek yogurt (or sour cream), and brown sugar until combined and smooth.
  3. Add the eggs, vanilla extract, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Whisk until smooth.
  4. Add the all-purpose flour and whisk just until combined. Gently stir in the blueberries with a spatula (you can toss them with 1 tablespoon of flour beforehand to help prevent sinking).
  5. Spread the batter evenly in the prepared pan.

For the Streusel:

  1. In a medium bowl, melt the butter for the streusel in the microwave (high for 40 seconds, covered).
  2. Stir in the flour and brown sugar until it forms a crumbly mixture. Sprinkle the streusel over the batter in the pan, breaking it into small pieces with your fingers.

Baking and Glazing:

  1. Bake for 60-75 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean or with moist crumbs. Note: If using frozen berries, it may take longer.
  2. Let the cake cool to room temperature on a wire rack.
  3. For the glaze, stir together the powdered sugar, milk, and vanilla until smooth. Drizzle the glaze over the cooled coffee cake before serving.

Serving Suggestions

Serve Blueberry Coffee Cake warm or at room temperature as a delicious breakfast or brunch option. Pair it with a cup of hot coffee or tea for a comforting treat. It also makes a delightful dessert served with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or a dollop of whipped cream.

Storage Info

Store any leftover Blueberry Coffee Cake in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days. You can also freeze individual slices wrapped tightly in plastic wrap and aluminum foil for longer storage. Thaw slices in the refrigerator overnight before serving.

Some Techniques or Tips

  • Be sure not to overmix the batter to avoid a tough texture. Mix just until the ingredients are combined.
  • If you prefer a less sweet coffee cake, you can reduce the amount of sugar in the streusel topping or omit the glaze altogether.
