Coconut Blueberry Cake Recipe

My husband and I pick wild blueberries every summer and store plenty of them in the freezer. That way, we can enjoy this delicious coffee cake and other favorite blueberry treats all year long. -Janis Plourde Smooth Rock Falls, Ontario
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Bake: 25 min. + cooling YIELD:12-15 servings


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup canola oil
  • 1-1/2 cups fresh or frozen blueberries
  • 1 cup flaked coconut
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 4-1/2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon peel
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice


  • 1. In a bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Beat the eggs, milk and oil; stir into dry ingredients just until moistened. Fold in blueberries.
  • 2. Transfer to a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish. Sprinkle with coconut. Bake at 375° for 22-24 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack.
  • 3. In a small saucepan, combine the sugar, cornstarch and lemon peel. Gradually add water until blended. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Remove from the heat; stir in butter and lemon juice. Cut cake into squares; drizzle with lemon sauce. Yield: 12-15 servings.
Editor's Note: If using frozen blueberries, use without thawing to avoid discoloring the batter.

"I skipped the lemon sauce, and the cake is still delicious! The flavor of the blueberries really comes through. I would add grated lemon rind and a little lemon juice to the cake next time if not using the sauce."
