One of the joys of homeschooling is seeing your children learn to be independent and have confidence to just go in the kitchen and make something. As soon as my children show interest in the kitchen I let them help me until they become able to make things on their own. My 16 year old has been baking since she was 8 and loves to make things from scratch. So what does she do when we have an over abundance of blueberries well make coffee cake of course.
"BLUEBERRY COFFEE CAKE"
1 cup packed brown sugar
2/3 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 cup butter
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup butter
1 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup milk
1 cup fresh blueberries
1/4 cup confectioners' sugar for dusting
Heat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Coat a Bundt pan well with cooking spray.
Make the streusel topping: Mix 1 brown cup sugar, 2/3 cup flour, and cinnamon in a medium bowl. Cut in 1/2 cup butter or margarine; topping mixture will be crumbly. Set aside.
For the cake: Beat 1/2 cup butter or margarine in large bowl until creamy; add 1 cup white sugar, and beat until fluffy. Beat in egg and vanilla. Whisk together 2 cups flour, baking powder, and salt; add alternately with the milk to the creamed mixture, beating well after each addition.
Spread half the batter in the prepared pan. Cover with berries, and add remaining batter by tablespoons. Cover with streusel topping.
Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 55 to 60 minutes, until deep golden brown. Remove pan to wire rack to cool. Invert onto a plate after cake has cooled, and dust with confectioners' sugar.
