Ingredients Needed for Lemon Blueberry Coffee Cake
I love the combination of fresh blueberries and lemon zest – they’re the perfect combo! Just like peanut butter and jelly. Lemon zest amplifies the flavor the blueberries and the blueberries love to be the center of attention. And I don’t blame them! Here are the ingredients needed to get this coffee cake baking away in your oven:
How to Make Lemon Blueberry Coffee Cake
As long as you have a few pieces of kitchen equipment, making this coffee cake recipe is a breeze! Plus, making a coffee cake shouldn’t be a hassle.
Equipment needed is:
Once you have your ducks in a row, it’s time to make some coffee cake! Simply whisk together the “wet” ingredients, and then fold in the dry.
Follow these simple tips to make a great coffee cake batter:
- After the dry ingredients are gently folded in, try to not over-mix the batter! It will make it be dense rather than light and fluffy.
- Toss the blueberries with a little bit of flour. Doing so helps the blueberries to stay in place in the batter rather than sinking to the bottom!
To Crumble or Not to Crumble?
I mean, how can you not want a crumble topping on your coffee cake?! But, if that’s not your thing, it can be left off!
Leaving the crumble topping off of the coffee cake means that a different cake pan can be used, such as a bundt cake pan. After the coffee cake has been turned out and cooled, it can be drizzled with an almond glaze such as this one. It will be just as delicious and beautiful!
If the crumble topping is used, then an angel food cake pan is the best way to make this coffee cake. The cake will have to be turned out of the pan and then flipped back over onto a plate to make the crumble topping be right side up. Easy peasy lemon squeezy.
