Blueberry Streusel Coffee Cake

"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!"

  1. 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!
  2. We had family over for breakfast and I had all the ingredients, so I gave it a try. OMG! The pickiest of the relatives called this cake "crack." He ate 4 pieces! I'm keeping this recipe and I'm going to take all the credit for how amazing it is ;)
  3. 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.


I have been cooking and baking since I was 6 yrs old...thanks to the help and guidance from my grandma...the first thing I can remember cooking was her famous potato salad for easter. today some 38 yrs later I am a cook at a lovely little restaurant where my boss lets me be as creative as I like and our customers love it...and can't wait until the weekend when I do my specials. I am a mom to three great boys...Jamie is 18 yrs old,, Evan is 6 yrs old, and my little sweetie pie Nick is 4. I never have to worry about what to cook...the boys will eat just about anything (especially Jamie..typical I also love to work out in my yard on my days off. I have a small garden that I tend to in the summer. every square inch of it is in this year I planted 3 types of peppers, tomatoes (plan on making salsa and freezing it for chilli in the winter) broccoli aka: trees to the kids, green onions, pumpkins, spinach and green beans along with all of my herbs. by august my garden looks like a jungle... oh between the garden and the farmers market I freeze most of my crops for the winter. The woman who taught me so much about cooking, baking and grandmother, passed away on Set. 26, 2008 at the age of 96 yrs old....I am going to miss her. I'd like to think that she is up in heaven now cooking her heart out for everyone up there.
