This Blueberry Coffee Cake streusel topping is one of my most cherished family recipes.  It’s been passed down for years and is the best blueberry coffee cake I’ve ever had.

This Old Fashioned Blueberry Cake is one of my most cherished recipes. It's been in my family for years!

I was given a gift card to order spices as compensation for this post, however as always all thoughts and opinions are my own. 

When I was 12, I spent a lot of time with my (great) Aunt Toni.  That summer she taught me how to make her perfect apple pie and this scrumptious easy blueberry coffee cake.

I love the simplicity of this recipe.  It’s a simple cake batter laced with fresh blueberries and topped with a cinnamon-crusted streusel topping.

Since this recipe is fairly simple, it makes a big different when you use top-quality ingredients.

When I made this cake, I used Madagascar Vanilla Extract and Indonesian “Korintje” Cassia Cinnamon from The Spice House.  This stuff was incredible!  I was blown away by how much more flavorful these spices were compared to my everyday spices.

Once you try The Spice House you just may fall in love with their quality, pricing and friendly service! I certainly did!

Here’s an interesting fact I learned…there is a reason vanilla is the second most expensive spice in the world…did you know it can take up to 8 years to harvest a vanilla bean start to finish?

It really makes a big difference when you use high quality ingredients, such as vanilla and cinnamon from The Spice House.  I highly recommend it!

This recipe is one of the best blueberry coffee cake recipes you will ever try.

  1. I am making the blueberry cake (which looks so yummy!) Do you use a 13×9 cake pan? By the way have just made your chili for the first time. Can’t wait to eat it!
