  • cups blueberries
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 4 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg, room temperature
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • ¼ cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
  • ½ cup milk
  • ¾ cup brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon


  • Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  • Spray an 8x8 baking pan with nonstick spray and set aside.
  • In a small bowl, add the 1 tablespoon of flour to the blueberries and gently stir to coat blueberries with flour. Set aside.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the 2 cups of flour, baking powder, and salt (whisking will remove any lumps in the flour). Set aside.
  • In a large bowl, cream together the sugar, ¼ cup butter, and egg on medium-high speed with a handheld mixer for 1 to 2 minutes. Add the milk and mix on low speed until smooth, 1 to 2 minutes.
  • Add the dry ingredients and stir just until mixed.
  • Gently stir in the flour-coated blueberries.
  • Spread mixture evenly into the prepared pan.
  • In a small bowl, mix together with a fork the topping ingredients of brown sugar, 3 tablespoons flour, 3 tablespoons of butter, and cinnamon until crumbly. Sprinkle on top of the coffee cake batter.
  • Bake for 35 to 40 minutes or until the cake tester comes out with just a few crumbs on it. Let it sit in the pan for 10 minutes before serving.


  • Coating the blueberries in flour will help keep them suspended in the coffee cake while baking, so you will have a nice distribution throughout.
  • This batter is quite sticky. When transferring to the pan, add a sprinkle of flour to the dough and your hands to get it into the pan easier.
  • Oven temperatures vary and may need to be recalibrated periodically to ensure they are accurate. Make sure to check your cake at the lower end of the recommended baking time.
