More things to do with blueberries (Blueberry Coffee Cake)

Blueberry Coffee Cake

this is an awesome and fairly healthy coffee cake. i believe i got it from ellie krieger and she is a  health conscious cook. quite yummy and something else to do with all the blueberries. it’s not super sweet but sweet enough.

Ingredients:

Cooking spray (I use Pam Baking Spray)

 1 cup all-purpose flour

1 cup whole wheat flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

3 tablespoons granulated sugar

1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional)

1/2 cup packed light brown sugar

2 tablespoons unsalted butter (room temp)

2 tablespoons canola  oil

2 large eggs (i like them room temp. just not cold)

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 cup plain nonfat yogurt (I have always used the greek yogurt; it’s fine)

1 cup fresh blueberries

Directions:

preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray an 8- inch square cake pan (i prefer pyrex glass for this)

Whisk together the 2 flours, the baking soda and the salt. in a small bowl, stir together the sugar, cinnamon and walnuts. in a large bowl, with an electric mixer, beat the brown sugar, butter and oil until fluffy. press out any lumps from brown sugar. beat in the eggs (1 egg at a time) and continue beating until fluffy. beat in the vanilla and the yogurt. add in the flour mixture in two seperate batches. batter will be a little sticky (I use a knife to spread.)

spread half of the batter into the prepared pan. sprinkle 1/2 of the nut mixture over the batter, and top with blueberries, gently pressing them into the batter. Spoon the rest of the batter into the pan, smoothing the top. Sprinkle the remaining nut mixture over the cake, pressing gently. Bake until a cake tester or wooden toothpick inserted in center come out clean, about 30 – 35 minutes. check on cake after 25 minutes. Let cake cool slightly and then unmold or just cut up into squares and put on a pretty cake platter.
