This is a great coffee cake when you need something quick (out of time or friends stopped by) because you probably have most of the ingredients on hand.  I didn’t have any fresh blueberries so I used frozen, was in a hurry and forgot the cardinal rule with frozen berries when you add them to baked goods – dust with flour and let the pan sit for about 10 minutes before you bake it.  That way your berries will not all fall to the bottom of the pan and you don’t look like you have a blueberry bottom cake.   Enjoy!  For comments/questions contact me ramona@lowfatdivablog.com
