What is Coffee Cake?

If you are new to coffee cakes, then let me tell you that coffee cakes have no coffee in the ingredients, but it is called so because the coffee cake is mostly served with coffee. The coffee cake was first created in Germany; the cake was delicious hence became popular in other parts of Europe and later in America.

How to make a blueberry coffee cake with crumble topping?

To have a delicious cake butter is a must but, in this recipe, I have added the oil too to keep the cake moist for a longer time. To make the cake richer, I have used evaporated milk, of course, you can use regular whole milk instead.

Making the coffee cake is easy; you sift the dry ingredients first and then separately beat the wet ingredients until combined. Add the dry ingredients to the wet and mix gently, then pour in a previously lined mini loaf pan.

Mix the crumb ingredients and form medium size crumbs, place the crumbs over the coffee cake batter and then gently distribute the blueberries over the crumbs.

Bake the coffee cake until a toothpick inserted in the middle of the cake comes out clean. Do not over bake this cake it will turn dry.

Make sure that the oven is preheated to 200F or 180C. If your oven does not prompt you when it reaches the desired temperature, then give it fifteen minutes to preheat and then place the cake in the oven to bake.

How to store blueberry coffee cake?

You can store the coffee cake by wrapping it in a plastic wrap and then freeze it. Refrigerating the coffee cake will make it dry but freezing it will maintain the cake’s moisture. The blueberry coffee cake is good for up to three months if kept in the freezer.

Don’t keep the freshly baked coffee cake at room temperature for more than two days, and if your kitchen or where you are storing the coffee cake is hot then keep the cake at room temperature for no longer than a day.

    If I were to make not minis but one big loaf how much would it make?

    • munatycooking

      If you want to make one big loaf then double the amount of the batter and the streusel.

    The batter split completely as I added millk to the sugar and butter milk. So it all went in the bin. Won’t be using this recipe again Sorry!

    • munatycooking

      Hi, The batter will split if one of the ingredients is cold or is spoiled. Make sure the ingredients are at room temp. Hope this helped!
