Coffee Cake

This Blueberry Coffee Cake recipe is a new favorite – it is absolutely amazing! I made it for a family brunch, and to my dismay it was totally gone before I could go back and get seconds! If this recipe has one downfall, it’s that one piece of coffee cake is definitely not enough. You will definitely want a second slice.

Whenever blueberries go on sale, I stock up with the intention of making this coffee cake. Not only is it simple to make, but it smells absolutely amazing while baking. It’s better than any candle I own!

Coffee Cake Texture

It’s hard to describe the perfect coffee cake, but I’ll do my best. While you are making this recipe, the batter will seem pretty thick. Don’t worry, that is how it is supposed to be. When it bakes up it always ends up perfect.

Once it is baked, this coffee cake is super moist and delicious, and you are going to love the bursts of flavor with the cream cheese swirls and fresh blueberries. This is great for breakfast when you have company or when you get together for brunch with friends. Or when you just want to eat blueberry coffee cake!

How to Freeze Coffee Cake

This makes a 9×13 pan size of coffee cake which is great for brunch or a baby shower or bridal shower. If you want to make a batch to eat now and freeze some for later, it’s very simple to freeze.

Simply cook the recipe as directed in the recipe card below, let it cool, and then wrap individual slices of the coffee cake in plastic wrap. Put all the pieces in a resealable freezer bag. Then, just pull out a piece and set it on the counter for about an hour. Unwrap and enjoy! If you want it warm, you can put it in the microwave for about 15 seconds.

More Coffee Cake Recipes

I have to admit, this Blueberry Coffee Cake is one of my all-time favorite coffee cakes! Although I think it is a pretty close tie with our Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Coffee Cake. Both are so good, you can’t go wrong! It works out fine because I can make the Pumpkin Coffee Cake during Fall and the Blueberry Coffee Cake in the spring. 🙂  And you definitely want to try our Cranberry Almond Coffee Cake during the Holidays. Although when I am looking for a quick and easy coffee cake recipe, I love to whip up our Cake Mix Coffee Cake. And when I am in the mood for a coffee cake type dessert, I love our Cinnamon Swirl Cake with yummy frosting on top!

    So happy I froze a bunch of blueberries this summer so I could make this amazing coffee cake. It’s moist and delicious.

    1. Yes, you can use frozen. Just give them a good rinse and dry them well before adding. Hope this helps!

    I was looking for a recipe to use up some blueberries and cream cheese I had. I followed this recipe but it didn’t turn out good 🙁 The cake part seemed ok but the cream cheese filling had a weird consistency, kind of too eggy! I think if I do it again I might leave the filling part out. The crumb topping was delicious tho. Substituted part of the flour with oats, it’s how I usually love my topping, and it was the only change I made. Thank you for the recipe 🙂

  3. My husband and I take turns in making our wedding anniversary cake. This year was his turn to make what I wanted. I wanted this cake as soon as I saw it and I must say that it was perfect, best cake I ever had. Thank you so much

  4. Just made this Blueberry Cream Cheese coffee cake and it is outstanding. It was easy, I doubled the topping, love crumb topping and have a plate to take to a neighbor. Just a great recipe.

  5. At first, I didn’t think it was going to turn out – the batter seemed way too thick and I seemed to have way too much cream cheese layer. But it turned out great! At least all my co-workers loved it even if my 2-year-old didn’t!

  6. Great blog here! Also your site loads up fast!
    What web host are you using? Can I get your affiliate link to your host?
    I wish my web site loaded up as quickly as yours lol

  7. I have made this twice. Yum! I am wondering if my batter is the right consistency? It is much more thick than cake batter. But not as thick as sugar cookie dough. With it being so thick, I have trouble getting the first layer to lay down and completely cover the bottom of the pan. Also, there doesn’t seem to be enough batter to cover a 9 X 13. So, I have used a 9 X 9.

    Super yummy crowd pleaser. Thank you for helping me be a better cook!
