A delicious addition to your breakfast table, or enjoy a slice as an afternoon snack.  Fresh berries work well, but if they aren’t available or in season, try this recipe with (thawed) frozen berries.  Either way, it’s sure to please!

Ingredients

  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup non-fat milk
  • 1/2 cup yogurt, non-fat vanilla
  • 3 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons lemon peel (grated, yellow only)
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cups fresh (or frozen unsweetened) blueberries
  • Topping Ingredients:
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/8 cup walnuts (coarsely chopped)

Directions

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Position rack in the center of the oven.

2. In a large bowl whisk together the egg, milk, yogurt, oil and lemon peel.

3. Sift the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt onto the liquid ingredients. Using a fork, stir very lightly, just until ingredients are combined.

4. Gently fold in the blueberries. Pour the batter into an 8- or 9-inch baking pan coated with nonstick spray.

5. In a small bowl combine the topping ingredients. Sprinkle evenly over the cake batter.

6. Bake a 400 degrees for 30 to 35 minutes or until the top is lightly browned and a wooden toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

7. Allow the cake to cool in the baking pan on a wire rack for at least 10 minutes.

8. Serve warm or at room temperature.

Notes

When tightly wrapped in plastic wrap, this coffee cake will keep for 3 to 4 days in the refrigerator. It also freezes very well.

This was delicious. I used thawed frozen blueberries. Great recipe to make at night for the next morning.

I made this dessert using gluten free flour and it was absolutely delicious.

Not really problems with the recipe, but I used frozen blueberries and should have thawed them first, as this of course, made the batter very COLD, so the top baked quickly, and the middle was raw! <br/> <br/>Also suggest covering the pan with foil while baking
