BLUEBERRY COFFEE CAKE
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 3/4 cup granulated sugar
- 4 tablespoons butter, softened
- 3/4 cup milk (I use whole milk)
- 1 large egg
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 2 cups fresh blueberries
- 1/2 cup powdered sugar
- 1-2 teaspoons milk
- 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
MAKE THE BLUEBERRY COFFEE CAKE
In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, granulated sugar, softened butter, milk, egg, baking powder, and salt. Stir together until everything is combined.
Add the fresh blueberries and very gently stir into the coffee cake batter. Just gently stir in the blueberries until incorporated. Stirring too hard or too much will make the blueberries bleed color into the batter.
Spread the coffee cake batter into the prepared springform pan. Sprinkle the streusel topping evenly over the top.
Cook for 55-65 minutes. If the edges and top are getting too browned, loosely lay a piece of tin foil over top to prevent over browning.
The cake will be puffed up and a toothpick inserted in the middle should come out with dry crumbs NOT wet batter.
Allow the cake to cool for 20 minutes. Loosen the edges of the cake from the pan with a butter knife and then remove the sides of the Springform pan.
MAKE THE GLAZE
Combine all glaze ingredients in a small bowl and mix together. Add more or less milk until desired consistency is reached. Drizzle the glaze over the coffee cake.
You can serve this coffee cake warm OR let it cool to room temperature and serve. Store leftovers in a covered container at room temperature.
