With three-quarters of an hour in the oven — and long days of summer ahead, this Blueberry Buckle Coffee Cake is one to savor.

Unless your house is like mine, filled with boys who love their sweets. Then, it might be minutes to enjoy that summer goodness.

In any case, you’ll love each and every bite.

How to Make Blueberry Coffee Cake

Begin by making the streusel. Combine butter, sugar, flour, and cinnamon in a bowl. Mix with a fork to make the crumbly topping.

For the cake, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt in a medium bowl. In a separate bowl beat together butter, sugar, eggs, and vanilla until creamy. Then add the flour mixture, alternating with buttermilk. Mix until just combined and fold in the blueberries.

Pour the batter into a greased cake pan and sprinkle the streusel topping evenly over the batter.

Bake the cake for 40 to 45 minutes or until golden brown around the edges and a cake tester comes out mostly clean.
