I like to prepare this coffee cake on weekends...especially during blueberry season. Served with fresh fruit, it's a nice switch from eggs, cereal and pancakes.

"This batter was really thick. The recipe should indicate that. I was going to throw it out as I thought I had done something wrong. I baked it anyway, and it was okay, but rather dry. I also used 2 tsp of lemon peel instead of the 1 tsp given in the recipe. The cake was okay, but I don't think I will make it again."

"I think the cake has potential, but the lemon flavor was not strong enough. I would add more zest or lemon juice if I made it again."
