Coconut Blueberry Coffee Cake Recipe

"This golden coffee cake has been a fast family favorite for years," relates Joy McGhee of Gilbert, Arizona. "My mother stirred it up on Sunday mornings, and the aroma as it baked always got me and my brother up out of bed early. That ensured we'd have a good breakfast before church."

"Wonderful recipe. I followed it and it is perfect. Light and fluffy and not too sugary. Yum!"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 5, 2011

"I made this coffee cake with a couple of changes. We don't care for coconut, so I made a crumb topping with flour, sugar, and butter. I baked it all in a 9 by 13 glass pan at 325 for 50 minutes, instead of using two round pans. Both changes worked great and the coffee cake was a big hit with our Sunday School class!"
