If you did not know my parents have a lovely backyard garden – and of course we have blueberry plants. For some reason there are blueberry plants all over Oregon – they are even along the streets how crazy is that. You can go Blueberry picking almost anywhere.

Here is a picture of my mom’s garden

You can even see my dad picking the blueberries. We picked about 10 cups worth of blueberries and they are ALL gone already – I used some in this recipe. Fresh blueberries really make a difference.

I cannot wait to go next week and pick even more blueberries 🙂 Have you ever made coffee cake before? I use my own secret ingredient.


Blueberry Coffee Cake Ingredients

My secret ingredient is using lime juice! Yes juice of one lime – even though you really cannot taste the flavor of it in the coffee cake it heightens the taste of the blueberries – makes the flavor really POP!

When you make this cake – do not worry that the batter will be thick! It will turn out great – it does not rise that much so make sure not to use a large cake pan.
