Blueberry Coffee Cake

Just when I thought I’m now somewhat proficient with handling refrigerated dough, we decide that we’re going to launch flour. And henceforth begins my crash course in scratch baking.

Blueberry Coffee Cake

I knew I had my work cut out for me, so I decided to bring in the big guns. Adriana is one of our resident expert baker extraordinaire, and she happily lent a helping hand and created this amazing coffee cake recipe with our New All-Purpose Flour, along with several other yummy recipes. BUT! I have to say that this is by far my favorite. The super light coat of cream cheese on top is the perfect finish to an already a mouth-watering-ly irresistible recipe, perfect for a weekend brunch!

Alternately add flour mixture and buttermilk to egg mixture, beating just until combined after each addition. Pour batter into pan.
  3. In small bowl, beat cream cheese and remaining 1/4 cup granulated sugar on medium to high speed until combined. Add egg white; beat until combined. Sprinkle blueberries over batter in pan. Spoon cream cheese mixture over blueberries, allowing some of the berries to show.
