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?

  15. 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. :)
