Easy Blueberry Coffee Cake Recipe
The top of this blueberry coffee cake is nice and crunchy - isn't the crispy part always the best part when it comes to coffee cakes? Yum!
I may make this blueberry coffee cake recipe for Mother's Day this year, as my mom, sisters and I used to get together for a Mother's Day brunch every year, and we haven't done it in a while.
I think it's time to bring back that fun filled tradition!
We would send all of the kids off with their dads, or to grandpa's, and have tea cakes, quiches, etc, and my mom would decorate her house with the cutest Mother's Day and Spring-themed decor!
After a while, our little circle of nearby moms dwindled down and we began doing a Mother's Day brunch or lunch at a local restaurant called The Tea Room.
I love that place! It's so adorable, and the food is fantastic!
My mom and I go there every once in a while and it was one of my late grandmother's favorite spots. We've even had baby showers and bridal showers there!

Easy Blueberry Coffee Cake Recipe Directions
Preheat your oven to 350 and spray a square baking pan with nonstick cooking spray and set it aside. Even if you think that it is a nonstick baking pan...don't trust it!
I have had far too many recipes ruined because my so-called "non-stick" baking dish wasn't really all that non-stick!
In a small bowl, add 2 cups flour, baking powder and salt. Mix well and set aside.
In a medium mixing bowl, add ½ stick (¼ cup) butter and ¾ cup white granulated sugar. Beat this on medium speed for approximately three minutes.
Add in the single egg as well as the vanilla and beat it well. It should be a flight, fluffy and creamy consistency once it is completely blended.
Next you are going to add in the flour mixture and the milk and beat just until combined. Fold in the blueberries, being very careful not to smash them up.
The coffee cake looks much nicer if the blueberries are in whole pieces and the juices don't mix too much into the batter.
If you are using a package of frozen blueberries or canned blueberries, be sure to completely thaw them, drain them and pat them dry before adding them into the dough mixture.
Otherwise the additional moisture from the blueberries will completely change the density of the coffee cake.
Pour the batter into a prepared pan and spread it out evenly.
In a small mixing bowl, add in the remaining half stick, or ¼ cup, of butter, ⅓ cup of flour, as well as ½ cup of sugar and cinnamon.
Using a pastry blender, be sure to blend all of the ingredients together until you have small pea-sized chunks and crumbs.
Spread mixture on top of batter in pan.
Bake for 25-30 minutes or until toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Let cool completely before cutting into squares.
Makes 16 squares.

I know that many people still like to print out recipes and keep them in a recipe binder, or simply have the printed recipe sitting in front of them when it comes time to cook!
Sometimes it is just easier to go off a recipe when it is printed right in front of you. Who wants to swipe their screen on their phone or tablet when their hands are greasy? So I love offering this option as well!
