Cinnamon Blueberry Coffee Cake

My favorite coffee cakes have a layer of streusel baked right into the cake. A sweet caramel-y surprise, and this coffee cake is no exception! I needed to use some more of those blueberries I picked the other day and this was a great use!

Cinnamon Blueberry Coffee Cake
1 – 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup butter melted (1 stick)
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract

Streusel filling
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tablespoon flour
1 tablespoon sunflower oil

Pre heat the oven to 325 degrees

This is put together using the quick bread method. Sift together the dry ingredients for the cake and then add everything else and stir. It couldn’t be easier.

To put together the streusel filling, the technique is the same except no sifting. Just put everything together and stir until it’s all crumbly and well mixed.

I like using a Bundt pan for this cake and it’s the perfect size recipe for a 6 cup Bundt cake pan. Use non-stick baking spray and spray the pan so the cake will release easily. Forgetting the non-stick spray is kind of a 50/50 chance I find. The cake might stick and it might not. Generally I always regret not spraying down the pan for some reason or another.

Another thing that I like to do is use an ice cream scoop to get an even layer of batter down. Scoop a nice even layer of batter into the pan. Then spread it out evenly into the pan. Try to use less than half of the batter for this part. You’ll need the rest to cover the streusel layer.

The next thing you’re going to do is spread out the streusel layer over the scooped out batter. Once you’ve done that, use the ice cream scoop and spread out the rest of the batter evenly right on top of that layer of streusel.

Use a little spatula or spoon and spread out the batter evenly.

Bake in the oven for 45 – 60 minutes (mine took 55 minutes) but all ovens are different. (My oven is also very dirty – I need to clean it)

Flip the cake out of the pan while it is still warm – let it sit for a few minutes first, but don’t let it cool all the way in the pan – so that nothing sticks.

Slice and enjoy!
