this is a recipe that is a combination of many recipes. It is very moist and rich. My husband says this is "the best darn blueberry coffee cake" he has eaten in a long time! as he grabs his 36 inch waist and tells me "it's paid for" (considering when I met him he had a 32 inch waist 8 years ago)...LOL your kitchen will smell heavenly when this is baking!

I added ground walnuts in with the topping but otherwise adhered to the recipe. Oh my gosh! Was this good or what? This was GREAT not good! I had a big piece for breakfast and enjoyed every last calorie (hehe) My DH and boys were up earlier than usual just to have a piece. Got rave reviews from them too! Thanks for sharing!
This is a very good recipe. For the streusel topping I made the mistake of letting the butter get too soft. The topping was more like a cake mixture than a crumbly mixture. I did not use all the streusel topping. I just put dabs here and there and then swirled the batter. I also used self rising flour so I did not have to add the baking powder, baking soda or salt. Thank you for this wonderful recipe.
