Blueberry Coffee Cake

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by bert2421

I got this recipe from a friend and since I had the blueberries on hand, I decided to make it right away. The cake came out wonderful, and the topping was so nicely baked on top. You have to try this one. I think you could probably use a different berry if you prefer.

Steps 1 and 2 contradict each other. (Combine sugar with all dry ingredients and set aside; then cream sugar and shortening.) I used margarine instead of shortening, and the procedure was different since I couldn't do step 2. However, that said, this is a great tasting little cake! I even skipped the topping, so it looks a bit bare...but no matter. It's delicious and perfect with a fresh cup of coffee.
