Blueberry Coffee Cake

Wow. Has it really been almost 9 months since I've posted anything? I don't really have an excuse for the fall  & winter months, but I have spent the last 4 months living in a different city from my husband to take a teaching opportunity. Needless to say, I didn't cook very often since I lived away from home during the week and relied on old standbys on the weekends. Now that summer is here though I hope to keep this little ol' food blog of mine going. I just tend to come and go, but that's ok by me.

I like to make a nicer breakfast on Sunday mornings before my husband has to go to work. I had a pint of blueberries to use up last weekend so I decided to start there. Coffee cake is always a favorite so that's how this happened in my kitchen. This cake was moist and delicious. I would highly recommend refrigerating it though to keep it fresh for a few days.
