THE Coffeecake

Wow, seriously, you must make. Absolutely delicious coffeecake!


1/2 cup of firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 cup of all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons of ground cinnamon
1/2 tablespoon of allspice.
1/3 cup of cold butter

1/3 stick of butter, softened
1/3 cup of granulated sugar
2 eggs
2 teaspoons of vanilla
1 1/2 cups of all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon of baking powder
3/4 cup of milk
2 cups of blueberries

  Other things you might need
1 medium bowl
1 large bowl
1 small bowl
butter knife
electric mixer
a tiny bit of extra butter and flour to spread on the bottom and sides of pan
11X7 inch baking pan


First, the streusel. In a medium bowl, combine everything except the butter- brown sugar, flour, cinnamon, and allspice.

With the butter knife, cut the cold butter into the streusel mixture, sort of chopping it into it to mix and combine until it resembles coarse crumbs.

Now, set the streusel aside for later use, and pre-heat oven to 375.
Take out your large bowl and soften your butter in the microwave if it is not yet malleable.
Beat your butter and granulated sugar together until light and fluffy.

Add eggs and vanilla and beat together once more until well-combined.

Here's where your small bowl comes in. Take it out and mix together the flour and baking powder.

Alternating the flour mixture and milk, add to the butter mixture, beating each time until well-combined.

Gently stir in blueberries. I used frozen blueberries since, at the moment, it is winter. They turned the mix a little blue, but that is ok.

Grease and flour your 11X7 inch baking pan and pour the blueberry mixture into it, evening it out with a spatula or spoon or fingers. :]

Sprinkle streusel mixture evenly on top, smoothing out with something that is not sticky from blueberry mixture.

Bake for about 30 minutes, or until springy to the touch and the edges are browned and just slightly pulling away from sides of pan.
Enjoy with milk or coffee or by itself! :3
