Blueberry-Almond Coffee Cake (Low Fat)

Blueberry-Almond Coffee Cake (Low Fat) created by brokenburner

I found this in Cooking Light ages ago.. it is INCREDIBLY LIGHT, bursting with blueberries and uses buttermilk instead of fat. I serve it as a dessert with a drop of whip cream. I usually use frozen berries with no problem. Perfect for smaller families and freezes well!

    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!!
