Blueberry Coffee Cake

I have to be honest, I don’t like plain blueberries. Plain blueberries just don’t work for me. I don’t like the texture. But when blueberries are added to a pie, or a muffin, or a cake they turn into a delicious, mouth-watering treat!

This recipe is incredibly easy and mess free! Everything gets dumped into a big bowl and mixed up (a great recipe when kids want to play sous chef!). Sprinkle some blueberries, cinnamon and sugar on top and you get a delicious coffee cake that your friends, guests and family will love.
