This recipe was submitted awhile ago by "cheryltoliver". I finally got around to making it over the weekend (June 2013) and now I'm kicking myself for waiting so long. This is one of the best coffee cake recipes on the site. It's loaded with blueberry flavor and the slightly crisp topping offsets the fluffy, soft interior of the cake perfectly. The only changes I made from the the original submission were to replace the shortening with softened butter and to add 1/4 cup chopped walnuts to the topping. I also added 2 Tablespoons additional milk to the batter. That wasn't necessary, but the coffee cake seemed to have just the right amount of moistness with that change. It's now 3 days since I made it and it's still as moist and delicious as when I pulled it from the oven. This is a must-try recipe.

A fool-proof recipe (and I'm the fool to prove it). While assembling, I accidentally put 2 eggs in instead of 1. Rather than doubling everything I just cut down on the milk (I used half n half). The cake turned out beautifully and got many 'this is really good' compliments.

I mixed 1/4 cup of chopped walnuts in with the topping mixture. Good recipe and easy too.

Please include in your instructions that this works GREAT with whole wheat flour! I first wrote you over a year ago, saying how I love this recipe, and I'm still passing this recipe on to friends(who are passing it on to friends)!
