"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."
Marian Platt of Sequim, Washington assembles this convenient cake the night before she needs it. "Just pop it in the oven the next morning. Within minutes, you're enjoying its light texture and fruity taste," she reports.
The first thing I do when fresh blueberries are in season is bake this coffee cake for my husband, Carl. I've tried a lot of others, but this is the recipe I always come back to.

I love cream cheese and blueberries so I tweaked one of my grandmother's recipes to come up with this danish. It's a quick and easy crowd-pleaser, especially for breakfast or brunch. —Nicole Wheeler, Millen, Georgia
