I love, love, love blueberries! I can eat them by the handfuls…literally. So, it shouldn’t come as any surprise that this blueberry coffee cake recipe would be at the top of my list of favorites.
The best part (for me anyway) about this blueberry coffee cake is that it makes a 9×13 pan instead of the square 8×8 pan that many coffee cakes recipes call for. It would seem that – for that reason – it would last longer, but that’s not how it works. Not in our house anyway.
This might be more appropriately called blueberry streusel coffee cake because there is a streusel topping that gives it the perfect crunch in every bite.
To get started you will need 1/2 cup of oil, 3/4 cup of sugar, 2 eggs, 1 cup of sour cream, 1 teaspoon of baking powder, 1 teaspoon of soda, 1/2 teaspoon of salt, 2 cups of flour, 1 teaspoon of vanilla, and 2 cups of fresh or frozen blueberries.
First mix your oil and sugar together well, then add the eggs. Next, sift all of the dry ingredients together.
Add the dry ingredients to the egg mixture alternately with the sour cream, add the vanilla, then carefully fold in the blueberries.
My favorite part.
Pour the batter into a greased 9×13 inch pan and get ready to make the streusel topping. For that you will need 1/2 cup of sugar, 1/3 cup of flour, 1 teaspoon of cinnamon,1/4 cup of butter, 1/2 cup of chopped pecans (These are optional, but oh, so good!)
Once you’ve combined the streusel ingredients, sprinkle on top of the batter.
Bake in a 350 degree oven for about 40 minutes. Do not over bake!
This is sooo good served warm.
