I’m a sucker for a good coffee cake and since I’ve been on a blueberry kick lately it was only a matter of time before I whipped up this French Vanilla Blueberry Streusel Coffee Cake.
This french vanilla blueberry streusel coffee cake uses french vanilla yogurt to create a fluffy, lightly sweetened cake, with tart fresh blueberries, sweet brown sugar streusel topping and a french vanilla glaze made with natural french vanilla coffee creamer.
I absolutely love how moist this coffee cake bakes up. It goes great with your morning coffee, afternoon tea or even as a dessert served with french vanilla ice cream. I prefer fresh blueberries with this recipe, but frozen blueberries will work as well.
If I’m making this for company I double the brown sugar topping and the glaze!! Yum!!
*NOTE* Please note that this is a coffee cake and even though it has sugar in it, the cake part is not nearly as sweet as a regular cake. The sweetness comes from the brown sugar streusel topping and french vanilla glaze so double those recipe if you are a sucker for a sweet coffee cake.
Watch me make this blueberry coffee cake from start to finish!!
