Blueberry Coffee Cake with Streussel Topping Recipe

Blueberry Coffee Cake with Streussel Topping Recipe

My sister-in-law made this coffee cake with the fresh blueberries we picked while our families were vacationing at her cottage one summer. I've used frozen berries at home with wonderful results. Each time I bake this treat, we're reminded of fun times.
