Blueberry Coffee Cake

 

This sweet blueberry bread/coffee cake smells amazing! It is perfect for morning breakfast or an afternoon coffee. It is soft, very moist and I also added crunchy, sweet crumb topping. It is also infused with some lemon zest. A great way to take a pause from blueberry muffins.

I love blueberry muffins, but I also wanted to try some new recipes, that’s how I came up with this one. 
I used one of my recipes for blueberry muffins, but added an extra egg, lemon zest and more baling powder, since I wanted this cake to rise more.
I also decided to try brown sugar crumb topping, which I made for the first time. It gave the cake another pop of flavor.
If you like blueberries, this cake is just another excellent way to enjoy them.
I used an angel food cake pan, but it can also be made in a regular round, bundt of springform cake pan. 
I also used frozen blueberries, because that’s what I had.
