I love that we can eat cake for breakfast. Like, just throw “coffee” in front of it and we can have it in the morning. I’m here for that.
Plus, it has blueberries so there’s your fruit.
And not only can it be breakfast but it’s also great for brunch, an afternoon snack or dessert.
Ingredients for Easy Blueberry Coffee Cake
Here’s what you’ll need to make this delicious blueberry yogurt coffee cake.
Can I Use Frozen Blueberries?
Fresh blueberries are preferred for this recipe but you can use frozen blueberries.
If you are using frozen, make sure to thaw them out first. Once thawed, dump out on some paper towels and pat them dry. Make sure to get them as dry as possible.
Any excess liquid can mess with the texture of the cake. Once dry, proceed with the recipe as written.
How to Make Blueberry Yogurt Coffee Cake
Add butter and sugar to the bowl of a stand mixer. Cream until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Add egg and vanilla extract and mix until combined. Mix in Greek yogurt.
In a separate bowl combine the dry ingredients. Add half the dry ingredients and mix until just combined.
Add half the milk, mix until combined. Dump in remaining dry ingredients and mix until it just comes together. Lastly, mix in the rest of the milk until just combined.
Stir in blueberries by hand. Spread the cake batter into a greased 9-inch cake pan. You can also use a 9×9 baking pan if desired.
To make the streusel, cut the cold butter into cubes. Add remaining ingredients and cut together with a pastry cutter or two forks.
Once it resembles coarse sand, it’s ready to go. Sprinkle on top of the cake evenly and bake.
Double the Streusel, Double the Fun
Feel free to double the streusel in this recipe. It’s never a bad idea to have more crumbly goodness on top.
Honestly, that’s what we usually do. Go with your heart.
