Blueberry Coffee Cake

Mother’s Day is approaching and this is a wonderful cake recipe to surprise your mom with. I don’t eat most cakes because they tend to be too sweet, but this recipe has a great balance of flavors. I also love the crumble topping. It adds a layer of deliciousness to the cake.

Although, you really can eat this cake for any occasion. Sometimes we like to make it so we can have it for breakfast or brunch. It goes great with coffee or tea! Enjoy 
