Wild Blueberry Coffee Cake

I think my love for coffee cakes stems from my lack of guilt eating them; it’s so much easier to eat coffee cake or a muffin than a slice of chocolate cake and the euphoria that results is equally amazing.

Warmed up and topped with a little vanilla ice cream coffee cake becomes an amazing dessert and on it’s own it’s a light, quick breakfast.  You can’t eat chocolate cake for breakfast, can you?

Coffee Cake is so easy to make and so quick – there are hardly any icings or frostings, so a few minutes in the kitchen and some time in the oven and you’re done. There is rarely much prep work and it can be eaten with one hand, wrapped in a napkin while driving if need be.  I wish Grant saw the numerous perks to coffee cakes but he doesn’t share the same passion as I do, so I often end up eating them on my own or sharing them with coworkers.

This coffee cake really was the best I’ve ever made, and that’s saying a lot. My cranberry coffee cake was equally delicious but this blueberry cake wins with its unbelievably moist, perfect texture. Even Grant really liked it! Yummy delicious.
