“For baking cobblers and coffee cakes like this easy recipe, I love to have blueberries around all year long," notes Ruth Gruchow of Yorba Linda, California. "They’re easy to freeze and last about a year, so I buy them in season, put 2 cups in quart-size freezer bags and date each bag.”
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 have access to lots of recipes and cooking tips since all my sisters are good cooks. One is a home economics teacher, and I belong to a home economics club.
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
I had some extra blueberries and raspberries after a company dinner, and I was looking for a recipe to use them up. I made some alterations to a coffee cake recipe and came up with this delicious overnight bake. —Lisa Varner, El Paso, Texas
This moist golden morning treat quickly became my husband's favorite. And because it calls for a boxed blueberry muffin mix and canned pineapple, I never have a problem finding the time to make it for him. Plus, it looks pretty enough to serve company.
In the summer, we can get beautiful, plump blueberries, which I use in this easy-to-make dessert. I like to freeze extra blueberries so I have them available any time I want this treat. —Anne Krueger, Richmond, British Columbia
The aroma of this cake is heavenly, and the taste is scrumptious! It's wonderful with mid-morning coffee. You can also serve it at brunch, or with ice cream as a dessert. The blueberries help make this a special treat.
