Fresh Blueberry Coffee Cake. This coffee cake has a tender, fine crumb. It’s also very moist and dense and will remind you of the texture of a Pound Cake. Make this Fresh Blueberry Coffee Cake and enjoy it for breakfast, brunch, snack or dessert!
My mom shared about a gallon of fresh blueberries and another gallon of strawberries with me recently. They were at the peak of ripeness so I didn’t have long to wait to make something. It was not the best time for me to have extra recipes to make. It was right at the end of school, but when berries are ripe they’re ripe and you have to work them or miss out. I didn’t want to miss out.
First, I made this sauce with all the blueberries. I knew at least this way I’d have more than two days to make recipes. If you click over, you’ll quickly see that is a Strawberry Sauce recipe. The only thing I did different is substitute blueberries for the strawberries in the recipe. Then I refrigerated the sauce and began thinking of fun recipes for it.
This Fresh Blueberry Coffee Cake was the first recipe I made with the fresh sauce. I literally stirred it together in about 15 minutes and had it in the oven. It takes 45 to 50 minutes to cook in a 9×13 inch pan.
Fresh Blueberry Coffee Cake Tips
I used Greek yogurt in this cake. By using yogurt, the batter is thick and sturdy. If you were to use a thinner batter or an angel food type cake batter the blueberries would since to the bottom. That’s not what I wanted. I wanted three layers with the blueberries peeking through the streusel toppings.

Thank you so much for this recipe! It’s really easy to make and it tasted amazing! Will surely have this again!
I liked the all natural ingredients and the blueberry coffee cake tasted so good! I’ll be making this one again!
This recipe was sweet, moist and delicious, and much easier to make than I expected. I will definitely be making this again. Thanks for sharing.
Oh gosh this was delicious! I had a few friends over for coffee this morning and it was a big hit with all!
I made a sour cream coffee cake not too long ago and I did it with butterscotch and although I loved it thought it was really more of a dessert than breakfast. This looks like a better breakfast alternative!
This is pretty dense, but not crazy sweet. My husband liked it and he’s not a sweet eater. Hope you enjoy.
it looks delicious!

Love blueberries in anything. This looks really moist.
Thanks Peter, I actually learned to like blueberries, they weren’t my berry of choice, but my mom loves them and I’ve grown too since making her treats.

Yum Paula, what a tasty treat, I love baking with fresh blueberries!
Thanks Emily! It was tasty, I had to send it to the boys teachers so I wouldn’t eat too much!
And here I sit with 2 quarts of fresh blueberries! Thank you lady!!!
Yay!!! This cake is so moist and did you see my blueberry waffles? If you don’t like waffles (sometimes I hate to break out the waffle pan) this batter works as pancakes too.

Paula, I love how you used the Greek yogurt to hold the berries in the batter… making it a sturdy batter. The texture really looks amazing, pinning!
