I've received many rave reviews for this tender coffee cake that's chock-full of blueberries and sliced almonds. Since it's not overly sweet, it's just the thing for breakfast or a light dessert. -Brenda Carr, Houston, Texas

  2. Pour into a greased 8-in. square baking dish. Top with remaining blueberries. Combine the almonds, brown sugar and cinnamon; sprinkle over the top. Bake at 350° for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack. Yield: 9 servings.
Editor's Note: If using frozen blueberries, use without thawing to avoid discoloring the batter.

"Not sure why it's award winning. The whole top is covered with almonds and I just tasted the crunch of almonds. I feel it overpowered the cake."
