My mother has been making this coffee cake for years. It is a delicate, moist cake that is not overly sweet. It's perfect with a cup of coffee in the morning!

"There wasn't enough batter to separate and put into a 9 inch pan. I put all of the batter into an 8 in square pan. Put the blueberries on top and then the topping. It was okay but not very moist."
