Almond Blueberry Coffee Cake
Our blueberry coffee cake with a toasted almond streusel topping is absolutely delightful.
It is a very easy cake recipe and can be made with either fresh or frozen blueberries.
That makes it an easy year round treat.
Cream the softened butter, gradually add the sugar, beating them together until the mixture is light and fluffy. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each egg is added. Stir in the 2 teaspoons of lemon juice. Combine the flour and baking powder and stir into the creamed mixture, mixing well.
Spread the batter evenly into a greased and floured 13"x9"x2" glass baking dish. Sprinkle with the blueberries and remaining lemon juice. Combine the flour, sugar and almonds for the topping. Cut in the butter until the mixture resembles coarse meal. Sprinkle the topping over the berries.
Bake at 325°F for 40-45 minutes.
Makes 15 servings.This blueberry coffee cake tastes great served with delicious homemade ice cream.

The recipe calls for it to be made in a 13"x9" baking dish, but you can also make it in loaf pans. Just bake it for a little bit longer and make sure the center is cooked through before you remove it from the oven. (Test it by insertng a toothpick in it. It is cooked when the toothpick comes out clean.)
