Blueberry Coffee Cake

I don’t normally bake coffee cakes.  Actually, I don’t really consider myself a baker, so if I’m going to go to the trouble, it’s usually going to be something deep, dark & chocolate!  I will make an exception, however, for this coffee cake.  My friend, Annette, made this for breakfast last time Marlboro Man and I joined her and hubby, Tom, at their spectacular hill country ranch…see below…breathtaking, right?

Anyway, this coffee cake is melt-in-your mouth good.  Instead of the usual crunchy, crumbly topping on the top, this one has it running through the entire cake!  A perfect blend of brown sugar, cinnamon and nuts makes this cake absolutely irresistible with a cup of hot coffee!

  2. Wow, that crunchy middle sounds delicious. I think I may like that even more than having it on top. I have a linky party on my blog every Saturday called “Sweets for a Saturday” and I’d like to invite you to stop by this weekend and link this up.
