A delicious breakfast recipe for your family. Full of sweet blueberries, this Brown Sugar Blueberry Coffee Cake will be just what is needed on a Monday morning.
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, you know. I mean if you saw this Brown Sugar Blueberry Coffee Cake, wouldn’t you have to agree? How could you say no to the sweet blueberries, brown sugar streusel topping and moist coffee cake?
You can’t. Just admit it.
I don’t get to make coffee cakes or apple cinnamon scones for breakfast too often, because I would have to get up pretty early on school days. The kids (and hubby) enjoy a baked breakfast recipe on occasion and I enjoy making it for them.
Just gotta be the right time. Sometimes if I know it is going to be a dreary day, I will make something special in the mornings for them. Listening to their cries of “Oh yum, Mom” and “Thanks Honey” brings a smile to my face.
Brown Sugar Blueberry Coffee Cake
It can be made ahead of time, like the night before, and it tastes fine. I must admit, I like fresh out of the oven coffee cake. The blueberries are warm, the brown sugar topping is crunchy. Still good, day old, but just love the taste of fresh.
When making this recipe, I made sure I had enough for a large 9×13 pan. We eat a lot now we have a runner/marching band member and basketball player. The coffee cake lasted about 24 hours, so I would say it was a hit. 😉
This breakfast recipe is pretty basic and simple to put together. It can be made quickly. The only issue for an early morning bake time would be with the amount of time it needs to bake. It takes about 35 minutes to bake so be sure to plan it so all your loved ones get a piece before they head out the door!

*I had a reviewer say that 35 minutes wasn't enough time to cook this coffee cake. I find that time to be accurate, but you may want to allow another 5-10 minutes depending on your oven*
