After trying several different combinations, I have finally created the best blueberry coffee cake recipe ever. This cake is so moist, with tidbits of sweet crunch from the streusel, and a layer of gooey blueberry goodness. You can bake this recipe in a cake pan, a loaf pan, or in a muffin pan (cooking time will vary). TIPS: I use a loaf pan. Fresh blueberries can be used as well. It will seem like the batter is not enough, but it will bake perfectly. Also, if the batter is a little thick, just add a little more milk. I am sure this recipe will also work with other flavor berries.
– Made this for a volunteer group meeting and it was a hit! Made a double batch and it was perfect for six people. (Everyone had seconds.)
I made the first batch in a round glass pie dish, and the second in a small square glass dish. Both worked well, but the round pie dish made six beautiful wedges to serve on everyone’s plate. (Very pretty!)

How to Make Bang’n Blueberry Coffee Cake
Grease and flour a loaf or cake pan. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
For the topping – In small mixing bowl, combine streusel ingredients. Blend with fork until crumbly. Set aside
In a small sauce pan, heat half the blueberries and 1 tsp of sugar over medium heat, while occasionally mashing the berries. Heat until berries turn into slightly thick syrup. Remove from heat and set aside.
In a small bowl, sift flour with baking powder and salt into a bowl. In a medium bowl, mix together beaten egg and 3/4 cup sugar and 1/3 cup melted butter. Add milk and vanilla. Stir in flour mixture and mix well.
Pour 1/2 the batter into a greased and floured pan. Sprinkle with remaining blueberries and half the streusel topping, then top with remaining batter. Using a spoon, drizzle the blueberry syrup over the top, and gently swirl with a toothpick to slightly mix in. Top with remaining streusel.
Bake at 375° for 35 to 45 minutes, or until cake tests done. Partially cool in pan on wire rack. Cut coffee cake and serve.
