Blueberry Morning Coffee Cake

Blueberry Morning Coffee Cake is the perfect cake for weekend guests or after school snack!

This Blueberry Morning Coffee Cake batter can be prepared the night before and refrigerated overnight which makes it great when you have guests.

Or if you want something you can simply throw together and bake in the morning.

When you’re ready to bake it, simply allow to sit on the counter 20 minutes to take the chill out and then enjoy baking it up fresh in the morning.

Sweet blueberry crunch and cinnamon and brown sugar make this an elegant, indulgent and not-too-sweet treat that’s worthy of the most formal brunch buffet.

We love this because of how easy it is. The longest time is simply baking it.

Post Great Grains Blueberry Morning cereal is perfect for this recipe although you can use ANY similar cereal even with different flavors.

The combination of whole-grain clusters, real fruit and crunchy nuts which lends itself perfectly to the crunch in the cake.

It’s the perfect amount of natural sweetness.

This Blueberry Morning Coffee Cake is literally just lightly sweetened with the flavor of Blueberry, with a delicate crunch in each bite.


The Great Grains Blueberry Morning cereal is amazing on its own too.

If you wanted to, you can totally fold in some chopped blueberries too. 

Although, I found the cereal brought exactly the amount I wanted and it baked up perfectly in the cake.

But add what you want, because this is just a jumping off point.

  1. Well I love to cook for my kids. I used to own coffee bars and baked a lot of muffins in the shop.But the problem was the amount of time it took to do them. So what I look for now is smaller cooking times as they take up the oven for ages.Then the kids just get moody so I can’t win Ha
