Blueberry Almond Coffee Cake

I've received many rave reviews for this tender coffee cake that's chock-full of blueberries and sliced almonds. Since it's not overly sweet, it's just the thing for breakfast or a light dessert. -Brenda Carr, Houston, Texas

    Not sure why it's award winning. The whole top is covered with almonds and I just tasted the crunch of almonds. I feel it overpowered the cake.
