Blueberry Coffee Cake

Friday, January 17, 2014

Mmmm...who doesn't love coming home to some home baked goodies on the counter and that fresh smell of coffee cake in the air? Although it isn't blueberry season, nor is it even spring for that matter, I thought some warm happy thoughts would make the warm weather come faster (right??).


Anyways, I had some frozen blueberries left in my fridge and decided I will use them all up for this perfect recipe! I had a bit more blueberries than what the recipe called for, and they still turned out perfect! A perfect companion to any green tea in the morning! Enjoy!
