I got this from my cousin years ago for a family reunion. It is my one & only signature dessert and you'll see why!! FABULOUS, not too sweet, not too dry, JUST RIGHT! I have to cut them into squares before taking them anywhere so I can "check" and make sure they are good :)

Excellent coffee cake! Had some fresh raspberries hanging out in the fridge and used those in place of the blueberries. The cake was moist and tender. Also was able to convert this to gluten free using my favorite gluten free flour mix and adding two tablespoons of ground flax seed. Can't wait to try this again using blueberries. Thanks for posting this Kiwi!

Very Good!! I used frozen raspberries from my garden. Next time I will use blueberries.

This was wonderfully light and fluffy; I had bunches of summer berries to use up, and this recipe was quick and easy to follow. Just the right amount of sweetness in the topping to balance the tartness of the berries. Will definitely make again, very good summer/picnic recipe.
