This coffee cake smells wonderful as it bakes and tastes even better. The moist cake filled with juicy berries and crunchy pecans is a family favorite. It never lasts long at our house. -Lori Snedden, Sherman, Texas

"I baked this coffee cake this am and found the cake too dry and bland. It seems to be missing something. Maybe a little cinnamon and brown sugar added. I don't think I would make this again.

I changed this from 2 stars to 5 stars. I creamed the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. Added egg, milk, and mixed. Poured into dry ingredients and mixed together. added the blueberries. Cake was wonderful. Family is requesting another one. A Keeper"

"Loved this coffee cake!!! Had to stop my kids from going back for so many extra pieces! I did leave the pecans out. I love nuts but didn't have any at the time. Don't think I would like them in it after having left them out. Soooo tasty!"

"So, normally I make blueberry muffins but decided to try and make this coffee cake this time. The ingredients only differed a little. For instance, the measurement for flour was increased by ? cup and instead of using vegetable oil it called for butter. Ran into an issue though with how the directions said to mix this up. I think if I mixed the butter in with the sugar and egg I would have had no issues. However, the directions say to mix softened butter with milk and egg only. It clumped up pretty badly because milk and egg are cold. Recipe didn’t indicate to have those things at room temperature. So, I ended up having to melt the butter pretty much. Then it was fine. It’s a thick batter and kinda dry and I ended up adding another tablespoon or so of milk. I also tasted the batter because I am a baker and test stuff and it wasn’t very sweet. I think with the added flour it took away sweetness and made it too dry. I went ahead and left it because there is a sugary topping and normally I don’t do toppings but decided to go ahead and try it this time. I’m no stranger to cutting butter in biscuits for example. For some reason flour AND sugar took longer than normal. Took quite a long time to get it crumbly. 35 minutes wasn’t long enough to cook. It was still gooey and added another 10 minutes. So, baked 45 minutes. It was an ok flavor not great though kinda bland. I even added extra blueberries. Its not something I’ll make again. I’ll keep looking for a recipe more to my liking."
