Say HELLO to my favorite breakfast/brunch sweet comfort food!

Throughout this post, instead of “Blueberry Coffee Cake”, auto-correct kept on changing it to, “Beautiful Coffee Cake”… Even auto-correct knows what’s UP!

HI HEY! What’s going on, pretty friends?? It’s the weekend! Hooray!

It’s apparent that just like Friends reruns, Three’s Company reruns AND Everybody Loves Raymond reruns, I cannot get enough of cakes. I am straight-up infatuated with them.

I even have a whole Pinterest Board dedicated to just Cakes. They’re SO pretty! 1 layer, 10 layer, lemon cake, chocolate cake, coffee cake… I don’t discriminate, I love ’em all!

BUT, since I’m a coffee fiend, coffee-cakes and I hang out together quite often.

So it’s only appropriate that I dedicate an entire post to my all-time favorite, super adaptable, absolutely and totally delicious Lightened-Up Blueberry Coffee Cake.

Couple years back I ran across the recipe for this particular cake and I have been making it ever since. I honestly have a hard time NOT making it every weekend. If something seems to be lacking in my life, this cake just magically pops into my mind, like, heeeey, pal! Make me and things will be well again! Then I answer back, like, Ummm…OKAY! And oooo-ey, things really ARE great again!

The other beauty of this cake is that it’s really flexible and totally customizable. However, what you really need to remember is that it’s only 220 calories per slice. If you cut it as thin as I do, it can be 150 calories per slice. Which will leave enough room for an Omelette Wrap beforehand. Just sayin’.

    1. Hi Jennifer! So sorry for the delayed response; I am just seeing your question.
      So a 9 inch springform pan makes about 10 cups, whereas a 9 x 13 pan makes 15 cups. I haven’t tried making this cake in a 9 x 13 so I can’t say for certain, but according to the math, you would have to add one-half of everything. 2-1/2 cups flour, 2 cups milk, etc… Again, I don’t know for sure if this would work because I’ve never done it, but it might be worth a try. I hope this helps.

    I made this for breakfast and loved it! I made a few subs in case anyone is interested. I subbed oat flour for 1/2 the flour, used frozen thawed blueberries, and used stevia in place of the white sugar. Definitely a repeat breakfast!!!!

  2. i love the sound of your blue berry coffee cake and love how you write, you give
    Me such a laugh thanks…
    But forgive me for asking – where does the coffee come in
    Is it the vanilla almond milk?
