This is a fantastic recipe that I have been baking for 20 years. I consider it more of a coffee cake - not quite as moist as a cake. It's very uncanny that the directions and each of the measurements are exactly the same as the recipe I was given by my mother.

Hi again. I am the one who developed the recipe. Yes, it is quite a coincidence! I never owned a 1976 Betty Crocker Cookbook. I made another modification that I think makes this even better by using 3 cups of frozen blueberries (that I bought fresh when on sale). I always use real butter, half and half and frozen blueberries, rinsed and patted dry with paper towels and add while still frozen. I made it for my teen granddaughter last night. She had 3 pieces! She added vanilla ice cream! This morning we had it with butter. Thank you all for your kind reviews. Note: Don,t overbake. Test for doneness at 25 minutes. Enjoy!

Very nice coffee cake. I used buttermilk and my fruit of choice was mango. Husband was impressed.

Easy to put together but i expected it to be more cake-like. My husband thought it was ok though.

Husband raved over this recipe. While it was good, it didn't match up to what I get when I travel to Maine. However, not using the tiny sweet Maine blueberries may be the reason. It is a simple and quick recipe to stir up.

I was pleased with how quickly this was put together and in the oven. The high point for one of our kids was that the blueberry wasn't overwhelming. I found it to be on the dry side, both the cake and the topping. I used fresh blueberries. Perhaps it would have been better to use frozen.
