great. i used frozen, chopped strawberries instead of blue, half whole wheat, half AP flour and half brown sugar, half regular sugar. Really enjoyed the almonds. i doubled the recipe and made in loaf pans to have for 2 days worth of breakfast. One recipe fed our family of 4. thanks for a healthy alternative!

Delicious! I omitted the almond extract, only because I didn't have it on hand. Yummy, will make again!

Excellent coffee cake! I decided on a whim this morning to make a coffee cake for a friend that was coming over for coffee and I knew that I had blueberries to use up and buttermilk in the house. This whipped up quick and the only tweeking I did was to add more almond extract and more blueberries. I didn't have any almonds in the house so they were omitted. I put a quick dusting of powdered sugar on top before serving. This one is a keeper!!

First, my changes... I must confess that I used frozen blueberries, coated in flour. I also used soymilk + vinegar instead of buttermilk, and margarine in place of the butter. It was missing a little "something," which surprised me, since there was both almond and vanilla extract in there. I made it again and increased the sugar to a cup, but it didn't seem to help that much. Maybe adding honey or vanilla sugar would help... but thanks for posting, it's a good springboard recipe!

First, let me say that I have my nerve rating this recipe because I took such liberties in substituting ingredients to make it more diabetic friendly for my family, but since it turned out so well, I feel confident that the recipe as written is even more sensational. I used soft whole wheat flour, splenda, non-fat yogurt, and canola oil in the same measures as the original ingredients of AP flour, sugar, buttermilk,and butter. In addition, for the topping I used Brown Sugar Twin, and 1/2 tsp of baking spice blend #145505 (on Zaar), omitting the almonds. When the coffee cake was freshly made I regretted using the brown sugar twin, and thought I should have just mixed the spice blend into the batter and omitted it altogether. The, (to me anyway), slightly off taste of the artificial sweetener magically disappeared overnight however, and I rather liked the topping taste the next day after the crust softened, and it sort of melted in.
