Blueberry Coffee Cake

Makes 1 8-inch cake

For the cake:

4 T. butter, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/3 cup milk
1 1/2 cups fresh or frozen blueberries

For the topping:

1/3 cup flour
4 T. butter
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg

Preheat oven to 350. Grease and flour an 8-inch cake pan.

Combine butter & sugar in a mixing bowl and beat until thoroughly blended. Add egg & vanilla and mix well.

Mix flour, baking powder & salt together and mix well. Add mixed dry ingredients to the butter-sugar mixture along with the milk & beat until the batter is smooth. Spread evenly in the prepared pan & sprinkle the blueberries on top.

For the topping: Combine flour, butter, sugar, cinnamon & nutmeg and cut in until you have light dry crumbs. Spread over the blueberries.

Bake for 50 to 60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean. Yum!

Try this with raspberries or any other fruit you love! This recipe can be doubled and baked in a 9x13 pan. Enjoy!
