directions

  • Preheat oven to 375. Grease 9 inch springform pan.
  • Sift together flour, baking powder and salt, set aside.
  • In a large bowl (I use my kitchen aid) cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in egg. Beat in the flour mixture alternately with the milk, mixing just until incorporated. Stir in blueberries. Pour batter into prepared pan. In a small bowl, combine topping ingredients ( I added the nuts last) Cut in butter until crumbly -- then add nuts. Sprinkle over batter.
  • Bake for 45 minutes (for some reason when I make it -- it takes closer to 1 hour) until toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  • Allow to cool.
  • I like to remove cake to cake plate and dust with powdered sugar.
  • UPDATE.
  • I feel awfully silly, but I have figured out why the times vary -- when using frozen blueberries -- the time is closer to an hour. Fresh berries -- 45 minutes.
  • Thank you for everyone's suggestion of using vanilla. I have added 1 tsp to the recipe with good results. Thank you again.

    I've made this twice. Both time I substituted blackberries for blueberries (because that's what we have growing right now). It is definitely important to cream the butter and sugar for a few minutes! The first time I just hand mixed them together for about a minute. The cake came out dry. The second time I made it I used a hand-held mixer and creamed the butter and sugar for about 4 minutes. The cake turned out much lighter and was not as dry. I also added some orange zest, which added a nice complementary flavor. I made this in a bundt pan. I added about half the batter, then the struesal topping, and then the remaining batter. Delicious! I will make this again.

    This was sooo good!! I used a bundt pan sprayed lightly with Pam and dusted with flour. It came out so pretty, I did dust some powder sugar on top. Since I used this pan the (scrumptous) topping was on the bottom, next time I may put the topping in first. Thank you for posting, This is a keeper!

    Great coffee cake! To bake it for my family in a 13 x 9 pan, I increased all ingredients by 1 1/2, and I added a splash of vanilla & almond to the batter. It baked at 375 for about 40 min.

    Okay, I used this recipe but I added just a few things to make it better and WOW this coffee cake is TO DIE FOR. 1. skipped the extra tablespoons of milk and used 3 tablespoons sour cream 2. used 1/2 cup sugar and 1/3 cup brown sugar/organic turbine sugar instead of 3/4 cup sugar 3. Added 1 teaspoon vanilla, 2 teaspoons of cinnamon and a pinch of nutmeg to the batter

    I’ve made this many times now, and it always turns out perfect! Recently I added a block of cream cheese with just a little bit of powdered sugar mixed in, in dollops on top of the dough, then I topped it with the crumble and omg it was SO good! I absolutely love it the original way too, though. Great recipe!!

    Amazing! Used walnuts instead of pecans. This is exactly what I was craving and a great way to use seasonal fruit. Thank you!

    Very good! We use a lot of natural sweeteners, so I substituted 2/3 c. of pure maple sugar for 3/4 c. of sugar, otherwise followed the recipe the same. Turned out great. Thanks for sharing!
