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 it is a Strawberry Sauce recipe. The only thing I did differently was substitute blueberries for the strawberries in the recipe. Then, I refrigerated the sauce and began thinking of fun recipes.

This Fresh Blueberry Coffee Cake was the first recipe I made with fresh sauce. I stirred it together for about 15 minutes and had it in the oven. It takes 45 to 50 minutes to cook in a 9×13-inch pan.

Another easy and delicious coffee cake is this Apple Pie Filling Coffee Cake.

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.

Streusel Topping


  • For the blueberry sauce, I used this Strawberry Sauce recipe and substituted blueberries.


  • Spray a 9×13 inch cake pan with non-stick spray.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit
  • In the bowl of an electric mixer, combine sugar and oil. Add yogurt. Mix until combined. Add eggs and vanilla.
  • In another bowl, combine flour, baking powder and salt. Gradually add to wet ingredients.
  • Mix until smooth.
  • Pour into prepared pan.
  • Spoon 2 cups blueberries sauce over cake batter.


  • Combine brown sugar, granulated sugar, cinnamon, salt and flour to a bowl. Stir to combine. Add melted butter and stir to combine. The mixture will be thick and clumpy.
  • Crumble evenly on top of blue berries.
  • Bake 45 to 50 minutes at 350 degrees. Insert wooden pick in center of cake to test for doneness. Remove and allow to cool on wire rack.
  • Serve warm plain for brunch or with vanilla ice cream as a dessert.

  6. 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!

    1. This is pretty dense, but not crazy sweet. My husband liked it and he’s not a sweet eater. Hope you enjoy.
