Blueberry Breakfast Cake

(8 servings)    Printable Version
  • 1 egg
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 3 Tablespoons butter - melted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries
  • 2 additional Tablespoons sugar
This is a fun recipe in that it tastes just like blueberry muffins. I also like that it's ugly before you bake it (like wet concrete) but beautiful when it comes out of the oven. I used frozen blueberries which adds a bluish hue to the cake. If you use fresh berries and fold them into the batter gently, you won't get that color in the cake. Some people like the color and some don't. I kind of do. Regardless of color, this breakfast cake has a lot of blueberry flavor. The only change I made to the recipe as submitted was to add about 2 more Tablespoons of milk to get a batter consistency that I liked. (This recipe was submitted in 2008. It was tested and photographed in December 2013.)

How To Make A Blueberry Breakfast Cake

Grease and lightly flour of a 10x6-inch or 8-inch square baking dish (approx. 1 1/2 quarts). Heat oven to 350 degrees.

In a medium bowl, beat egg; gradually beat in 2/3 cup sugar. Beat until well blended. Sift together the flour, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt. Add sifted ingredients to the egg and sugar mixture a little at a time, alternating with the milk. Beat well after each addition. Add butter and vanilla; beat thoroughly. Fold in blueberries.

Pour batter into prepared pan. Sprinkle top with 2 tablespoons sugar. Bake at for 25 to 30 minutes, or until top springs back when lightly touched with finger.

Serve warm with butter, if desired.

The coffee cake tasted great. I will bake it again for sure, but I had to use about 2 cups of milk instead of 1/3.

To Imo - I'm thinking Fahrenheit since 350 is standard cooking temperature for muffins and coffee cakes.

Is that Fahrenheit or Celsius?
