Blueberry Kuchen

In the summer, we can get beautiful, plump blueberries, which I use in this easy-to-make coffee cake. I like to freeze extra blueberries so I have them available anytime I want this treat. —Anne Krueger, Richmond, British Columbia

    Wonderful recipe, easy and fast! Will add a little cinnamon to the recipe next time since we all love cinnamon.

    Easy recipe. I should have read the reviews as a 9 x 9 sized pan would have been better! It was too sweet for my taste, but others didn't seem to think so. I would reduce to sugar in both the cake and the topping and perhaps add a dash of cinnamon to topping.

    This is a keeper. Love the blueberries, nutmeg and streusel topping! The sweet and tart gives a perfect balance of flavor. Followed recipe exactly except used a little less sugar, used brown sugar instead of white sugar in the topping and a few extra blueberries. Thanks for the great recipe. ??

    This was yummy, only thing I did different was bake in a 9x9 pan instead of the 13x9, and I did add some lemon oil to the batter. These came out perfect!

    This is an awesome recipe, so easy to make and delicious. I loved the contrast between the tart berries and the sweet streusel topping, fantastic! I did make a couple of tweaks, our use brown sugar for the streusel topping and I baked it in a 9 x 9 pan. Kept the time at 40 minutes on convection bake and it came out perfect!

    This was delicious! I used cinnamon instead of nutmeg, and added a little lemon extract. I baked it in a 9x13 pan and it came out great. Thanks for sharing!!
