Blueberry Coffee Cake Recipe--TNT

This recipe comes from my grandma. I am sure to make it every summer when I have a surplus of blueberries. This year I used an entire pint of berries in it and it turned out great, you just need to bake it a few minutes longer. It's also good with a little ground cinnamon and/or ginger.

Blueberry Coffee Cake

For Topping:
1/2 c granulated sugar
1/2 c brown sugar
1 c flour
1 stick butter (8 Tbsp)

For cake:
1 c flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 egg
water
1 tsp vanilla
1 c (I use 1+ cup) blueberries coated lightly in flour

For Topping: whisk together both sugars and flour. Using a fork or your fingertips, cut margarine into the sugar and flour until the mixture becomes the size of peas. Reserve 1 cup of these crumbs.

For cake: Add remaining crumbs to 2nd c of flour and baking powder. Crack egg into a glass measuring cup and add enough water to equal 3/4 c. Add egg and water to sugar and flour mixture. Blend well. Add vanilla. Gently fold in blueberries. Spoon mixture into a greased and lightly floured 8" square pan. Sprinkle with reserved crumbs. Sprinkle with cinnamon if desired.

Bake in preheated 400F oven for 25-30 minutes.

Yum, yum... I suppose I could use frozen blueberries, too for this recipe? I still have some left in my freezer, been intending to do something new/special/delicious with them, this may be the occasion!!

2 tsp. vanilla
2 eggs
4 T. hot (160-180 degrees) melted butter
1/2 cup milk
1 cup blueberries

Turn on oven to 350 and place rack in middle position.
Put flour, sugar, baking powder and soda, and salt in bowl, stir well & set aside.

Using metal blade in Food processor, process cream cheese, lemon juice, and vanilla until smooth. Add eggs & process 15 seconds.

Clean sides of container. With machine running, pour hot butter through chute within 10 seconds and process 10 seconds; add milk & process 5 seconds.

Add dry ingredients and mix 4-6 half-second pulses. Add blueberries & mix until all incorporated in batter, 3-4 ha1f-second pulses.

You sure can use frozen, just don't thaw them first and still dust them with flour! Enjoy!

cjs, your muffin recipe sounds great! Anything with cream cheese makes me happy!

There's no additional sugar. It comes from the remainder of the "crumbs" you start by mixing together. One cup of them are reserved from the crumb topping, the remainder is added to the cake ingredients per the instructions. Strange, I know, but it works out well!

Sounds good PA Baker. Did you use a metal or glass pan? This will be good for breakfast with a cup of coffee.

That sounds interesting. I never had a cake w/o sugar. It has to be a little healthier...doesn't it?

Jean, blueberries and cream cheese...mmmmm
