As we all know, blueberries are in season and in abundance right now. I’m not really a blueberry fan when they are raw.
They’re just so bitter!
However, baking them in something is divine.
So, I picked a blueberry streusel coffee cake. It’s sweet and delicious.
I didn’t take any shots before it was in the pan.
I’m horrible, I know! I was racing against my 4 month old napping. No time to spare.
You want to put half of the batter at the bottom of your floured and greased pan. Then you put your blueberries on there.
After that, you put the rest of the batter on top of the blueberries.
Somehow I ended up with not a lot in my halves. I think I put too much in the bottom.
That’s okay though!
I smoothed it around a bit to cover most of the blueberries.
And the close up. The blueberry juice in this was amazing. I think I must have had some plump ones.
Of course, I don’t know much about blueberries.
This recipe was good. I would make it again.
