This is easy delicious and a great dessert or breakfast recipe. I originally got this from Cooking Light a long time ago. The Cooking Light staff voted this coffee cake as one of the top five recipes from their first 10 years.

Excellent coffee cake! The consistnecy and flavor were perfect. I was worried because the batter was really thick, but it baked up beautifully. We also really loved the yummy topping. I used 1 1/2 C. frozen blueberries and thought it was plenty. Thank you! Made for the Spring 2014 Pick A Chef event.
