Lemon Blueberry Coffee Cake Recipe with Cinnamon Streusel

Leave a comment

So, we had some frozen blueberries leftover from something else. And some delicious organic lemons and hey, the two go great together!

This recipe requires few ingredients, and therefore wont eat up all your baking supplies. It is sweetly balanced, slightly fruity, and moist, so moist!! Even my husband who doesnt like fruity baked goods was a fan…;)

This is adapted from the app on my iPhone called BigOven.
