Fresh Blueberries, Coffee, Cake
What's not to love?
I first tasted this delicious coffeecake several years ago during blueberry season and was convinced it was the best thing around. Should I confess how quickly that first one disappeared and that my hubby and I were the only ones that ate that one and that I baked a second one the next day. I did invite company to help us with the second one.☺ Anyway I received a call from my sister today saying they are planning a trip to Pa. this weekend, so I guess this will be their Saturday morning treat and I will have to hide this thing in the freezer till they get here.
Here's what you'll need:
½ cup butter, softened
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup sour cream
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon baking soda
¼ teaspoon salt
1 cup fresh blueberries
1/3 cup brown sugar
¾ teaspoon cinnamon
Glaze for drizzling:
¾ cup powdered sugar
1 Tablespoon butter, melted
1 Tablespoon milk
½ teaspoon vanilla
Preheat oven to 350°. Spray a 9 inch Spring form pan with non stick spray.
Combine butter and brown sugar in a mixer bowl and beat until light and fluffy.
Add eggs, sour cream, and vanilla; mix well.
Add 1 cup flour and baking powder, baking soda, and salt; mix well.
Add remaining cup of flour and mix well.
Gently fold in fresh blueberries with a spatula.
Spread half of batter into prepared pan.
Mix brown sugar and cinnamon together and sprinkle over batter in pan.
Spoon the rest of the batter over the sugar/cinnamon mixture and carefully spread into an even layer.
Sprinkle with coarse sugar.
Bake for 45-50 minutes.

Let cool on a wire rack. Before releasing the spring run a sharp knife around the edge.
Remove to a serving platter and drizzle with the glaze.
Combine all glaze ingredients and whisk till smooth.
I poured it into a baggie and snipped a tiny corner and drizzled it like that. And I only used about half of the glaze.
It wasn't easy taking this next picture and then sliding it back into place to prepare it for the freezer. But that's what I did. ☺ Just thought you should know I do have some self control. ☺
I hope you try this scrumptious coffeecake. You will not be disappointed!
