Last week the food blogging sphere was filled with some amazing looking blueberry coffeecakes which was perfect timing as I had recently found some blueberries in my freezer. I decided to go with this recipe as it is one of my favorites for baked goods like this. I like that it uses lots of good stuff like whole wheat flour and rolled oats. I even used whole wheat flour in to make the crumb topping. The banana and yogurt keep the coffeecake nice and moist while also cutting down on the amount of butter required. Maple goes really well with blueberries and it finished this coffeecake off perfectly. I added even more maple flavour by using maple sugar in the crumb topping instead of regular sugar. The maple blueberry crumb coffeecake turned out amazing! It was nice and light and moist and full of maple and blueberry flavour. Now I am looking forward to eating this coffeecake for breakfasts all week.

Ok, now I have to make this again with maple sugar! Your version looks delicious!
That looks amazing, Kevin.
I really like the maple sugar idea — not only because it’s healthful, but also because I’ll bet the flavor rocked!
ooh, beautiful. i love that this uses maple and bananas.
Looks yummy, I had a very similar recipe bookmarked in my Dorie Greenspan’s “Baking from My Home to Yours” book I wanted to give a try too soon.
I have been addicted to blueberries lately! I have some blueberry recipes coming up in the next few weeks on my blog because of my addiction. Your cake looks really tasty, and really pretty!
I am just dying for a piece of that…right this minute!

I resolve to eat more blueberries for my own good, and great to see so many blueberry recipes that you have. Great stuff. 🙂
I have tested several recipes of blueberry crumb cake & yours looks perfect for some good indulging!!
Blueberry coffee cakes are EVERYWHERE!! Great with Maple sugar.
your cake is dense and crumbly and blueberry-laden–everything a good coffee cake should be. 🙂
Blueberry + crumb + coffee cake makes the perfect little treat!
This is a cake I could feel good about eating!
Your coffee cake looks wonderful. YUM!
That’s some awesome bluberries in there!!
Did you use old-fashioned rolled oats or quick-cooking rolled oats? Looks delicious!
Anonymous: Old-fashioned rolled oats.
This recipe should be illegal to possess, make and especially spread over the internet! I just made this cake and have already eaten the third slice, still warm. I can not stop eating and this can not be healthy at 23:30h. 😉
Thank you for sharing these very good ideas with the yoghurt and everything.
