Blueberry Coffee Cake #SundaySupper

Happy Mother’s Day!

Today for #SundaySupper we are celebrating Mom’s!  Today is such an important day to celebrate the woman who brought you life, the one who takes care of you no matter what your age is and the one who loves you for you, no matter what you do!  Today I will not be celebrating Mother’s Day with my Mom, not because I’m to busy or because I don’t want to, but because we live 3000 miles apart.  It’s hard being so far away from my Mom, she’s my best friend, and I miss her very much!  Now that I am starting to get a little mushy, I thought I should share with you a recipe that I made especially for celebrating Mother’s Day!

Blueberry Coffee Cake

This is my Blueberry  Coffee Cake.  This cake is light, moist, sweet and chock full of my second favorite spring berry, next to Strawberries of course.  I have had this recipe floating around in my head for weeks and I thought today would be a perfect day to share it with you.  Nothing beats sitting with a good cup of coffee or tea and having a light, low calorie piece or two of Blueberry Coffee Cake as you sit with your Mom and gossip about all your family members.  Yes, I said gossip, you know you do!

Blueberry Coffee Cake

When making this recipe, I had the idea of what and how I was going to make this recipe, but when I made it, I realized I didn’t have enough batter to do what I planned.  So I took a chance and made it anyway!  This cake exceeded my expectations!!  I was so happy on how puffy it got, and I when I took it out of the oven, I almost fell over on how beautiful I thought it was.  Little Jenny who doesn’t like blueberries, said it looks delicious, especially for blueberries.  Here it is fresh out of the oven.  I wish you could have smelled it. I have learned a key to baking, is smell. Once you get that oh my gosh smell, it’s normally pretty close to being done!

Blueberry Coffee Cake

It totally looks better in person, but you get the idea!  I tried to make this cake a little bit healthy, but I still manage to use 2 1/2 tablespoons of butter, and I honestly thought coffee cake needs butter!!  Real butter!  Gosh every time I even say the word butter I think of Paula Deen.  lol  Anyway, the cake in general is low calorie.  It comes in at only 124 calories a slice, and the slices are a nice decent size, not bad for cake.  :)

Blueberry Coffee Cake

This cake is also very easy to make and it bakes up in 20 minutes, so if your in need of a quick cake this is the cake for you.  If you want to be fancy, bake it in a round pan.  I actually wanted to do that, but or the life of me I can’t find my cake pans.  I have looked everywhere and they simply disappeared.  So annoying.  Maybe for Mother’s Day I’ll get some new cake pans??  Even though I am not officially a Mom, I do have two step-daughters and two BAD dogs, which I think is a lot more work then kids, ok, maybe not!  But my gosh, could they be anymore bad?

  1. I love the pic of you and your mom!

    And I love blueberries and coffee cake. Made one a month or so ago. I love how yours is LOADED with blueberries…that’s the best kind of cake!

  2. I could go for a piece of this right now! I’m a sucker for blueberries.

  3. Oooh, your coffeecake looks marvelous, Jen! So chock full of blueberries!!! Great photo of you and your mom!

  4. A wonderful combination! Must have been so delicious!! Lovely photo of you and your mom!

  5. Blueberries and coffee – I bet that’s a good combination! Lovely cake :)

  6. You coffee cake looks and sounds delicious. It’s funny I’m not a fan of plain blueberries but put them in pancakes, muffins, or coffee cake and I love them! I just made blueberry pancakes for breakfast and I would seriously eat like 4 pieces of this right now.

  7. I want to try thjis with the coconut milk, sounds so good!

  8. Mmmmm…what I wouldn’t give for a big ol’ slice of this with my coffee right now, it looks amazing, Jennifer!

  9. An excess of blueberries in a coffee cake? How can that possibly be bad, especially if it´s for your lovely mom! We should change the name from snack cakes to gossip cakes, much more fitting in my opinion. And I love the comment about your bad dogs…it cracked me up!

  10. Saving for my extra berries at the end of Driscoll Berry Week! Michael would love this for his breakfast.

  11. I’m also celebrating with mom from afar, so I know you feel. This cake looks amazing, I can’t say no to anything with blueberries and you use all the blueberries here!

  12. What a wonderful picture of the two of you! I can relate as to how hard it is to be far away from family as I am also a few thousand miles away from mine.

    Your blueberry coffee cake looks absolutely amazing and – I think – we will make it right now!!! Yay! Thank you so much!!! Have a great day!

  13. I was just thinking I needed to make a coffee cake again. And it just so happens I have a carton of blueberries in the fridge. Looks like I know what I’m doing for the next hour!

  14. Ooh I love blueberries and your cake looks and sounds fantastic!Love the use of coconut milk and would love a bite right now :)

  15. This cake has my mouth watering! I cannot believe it’s only 124 calories a piece. That means I get two or three pieces, right? 😉 My mom is resigned to the fact that she will be taking care of me forever!

  16. Your blueberry coffee cake looks fantastic!! It’s loaded with gorgeous blueberries, and I love that you used coconut oil and coconut milk!! I’ve never worked with the sugar alternative you mention as what you used. I’ll have to look into that!

  17. Love the picture of you and mom, both so pretty!! Your coffee cake looks so good and sooooo full of blueberries, I love it!!

  18. I am all about the coffee cake, and blueberries are my mom’s favourite fruit!

  19. The cake looks delicious! I love blueberries.

  22. Wonderful coffee cake for Mother’s Day! :)

  23. WOW, that is PACKED with blueberry goodness, YUM!

  24. I finally have the opportunity to start reading through everyone’s posts. Yours is the first, Jen, and if this is an indication of what’s to come, I’m going to be very teary and emotional today! I loved reading about how much you love your mom. No matter how old we are, where we are, what we’re doing, the one person who will always love, comfort and support us will be our wonderful moms. I’m sorry to hear you live so far away from her! Your cake looks amazing – I can’t believe it’s so low-cal! I can’t wait to make this! And seriously – having a four legged kid is a TON of work and you have two of them! I laughed over how BAD you said they were, I think I need some examples 😉 I hope you had a fabulous Mother’s Day!

    • Ahh, thank you Nancy! It’s hard being away from family, especially around the holidays. As for my bad dogs, a few examples are, one my dog steals food. I turn around to get a prop for a picture and bam, he grabbed what I made. Two, he dug a whole under my fence so he can eat the tomato plants. The only time he’s good is when I am cooking. Then he lays on my kitchen floor, sprawled out, so I have to step around him. :)

  25. Haha, I hear you on the naughty dogs – I have one too, and she’s a lot of work! Beautiful cake, and I love the photo of you and your Mom! So sorry you weren’t able to see her on Mother’s Day, but hopefully she read your post and felt the love :)

  26. I love blueberry coffee cake! Perfect for Mother’s Day!

  27. Totally dig this recipe. And the photo of you and your mama is lovely.

  28. Happy Mother’s Day! You look so happy together :) Lovely recipe, I hope your mum enjoyed, ok I’m sure she did.

  29. What a beautiful picture of you and your mom… I would love this blueberry cake any day of the week with a cup of coffee.

  30. That looks luscious! Great recipe for #SundaySupper!

  31. So many gorgeous blueberries in this coffee cake – the perfect way to start a day I say!

  32. Sorry you didn’t get to spend Mother’s Day with you mom. Maybe next year you can. Thanks for sharing a healthy coffee cake. I love them yet don’t indulge often because it is usually such a splurge.
