Blueberry and Lemon Coffee Cake

Blueberry Coffee Cake

The local blueberries are in season and I could not let them go by without making one of my favorite breakfasts, blueberry coffee cake. This recipe comes from my mother. I really like the way the sugar on top is crispy and lemony. The coffee cake itself is light and fluffy and full of blueberry goodness. This coffee cake freezes well so you can easily store any leftovers for another time.

I first tasted blueberries a year or so ago - before that, they were impossible to find here in Brazil.
The cake looks so good, Kevin!
