Contest-Winning Blueberry Streusel Coffee Cake Recipe

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.
