Blueberry Coffee Cake!

IN THE NEWS: Man claims he found condom in French onion soup. Read more here.

Tis the season for blueberries! And there's nothing like fresh blueberries where I live. They're super cheap now, too. I've been buying them by the tons and freezing them. (I've been doing the same thing with corn, too)

Anyhew, I found a recipe in one of my old Cooking Lights for a blueberry coffee cake and decided to make it since I had so many blueberries. Well, my hubby and mother went completely wild for it.

It's easy to make and so good in the morning with a cup of coffee. :)

Here it is:

Blueberry Coffee Cake

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour (about 6 3/4 ounces)
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup granulated sugar
6 tablespoons butter, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 large egg
1 large egg white
1 1/3 cups low-fat buttermilk
Cooking spray
2 cups fresh blueberries
1 tablespoon sugar

1. Preheat oven to 350°.
2. Lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Combine flour, baking powder, soda, and salt, stirring with a whisk.
3. Place granulated sugar and butter in a large bowl; beat with a mixer at medium speed until well blended (about 2 minutes). Add vanilla, egg, and egg white; beat well. Add flour mixture and buttermilk alternately to sugar mixture, beginning and ending with flour mixture; mix after each addition.
4. Spoon half of the batter into a 9-inch round baking pan coated with cooking spray. Sprinkle evenly with 1 cup blueberries. Spoon remaining batter over the blueberries; sprinkle evenly with remaining 1 cup blueberries. Sprinkle the top evenly with 1 tablespoon sugar. Bake at 350° for 50 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pan 10 minutes on a wire rack; remove from pan. Cool completely on wire rack

Yummy! We have lots of blueberries in Florida and while I'm not a very healthy person, my kiddos eat those things up!

Sounds delicious, but right now I'm staying away from all desserts except low-fat frozen yogurt.

Ooh, thanks for this. Cherries and blueberries are big here right now. I bought some of both yesterday thinking a crumble dish, but maybe I'll try this instead.

That sounds incredibly good. If I cooked, I would so make it.

Yummo! We LOVE blueberries here. I'll try that recipe but add a crumb topping.
