Fresh Blueberry Coffee Cake

45

It’s blueberry season and I had to pick up a few cartons of blueberries when they were on sale at the grocery store. The hubby isn’t a blueberry fan so the coworkers got treated to this recipe. It’s a very delicous coffee cake and I would describedthe texture more like a pound cake than light and fluffy. The hubby did try a piece and he said it was pretty good for being blueberry. He thought that maybe I could subsitute strawberries because he really liked the plain part of the cake. The coworke
