Blueberry zucchini coffee cake, a moist cake to eat in the morning or any time of day.
I am still enjoying blueberries. I am hoping that they will just keep coming, but I know that they will be coming to an end soon. In the meantime it seems like I really can’t get enough of them.
I have been having fun pairing the blueberries with all sorts of things this year. Normally I would stick to simple things like muffins or a simple blueberry coffee cake, but of late I have combining different flavors with my blueberries.
Like this blueberry zucchini coffee cake. Yes, it is that time of year for the zucchini to start coming out our ears. So when I was deciding on what recipes to make for the blog this week, I decided to use some zucchini with the blueberries. I never thought that it would turn out quite as delicious as it did.
The zucchini certainly made this coffee cake super moist and the blueberries; well I just love the flavor of blueberries in any baked goodies.
I couldn’t resist adding a little bit of sweet topping to this coffee cake. The topping is pretty simple, it consists of brown sugar, flour, cinnamon, butter, and some chopped pecan. I like to use this topping when I am making coffee cakes; it seems to go well with any type of coffee cake you are making.
You really need to try this coffee cake before the blueberry season passes us by, it will be gone before you know it.
- 1 1/2 cup flour
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 egg
- 1/2 cup sour cream
- 1/2 cup butter melted
- 1 1/4 cup blueberries
- 1 1/2 cup shredded zucchini
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 1 tablespoon flour
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 tablespoon melted butter
- 1/2 cup chopped pecans
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 9-inch spring-form pan.
- Sift together the flour, salt, baking powder, cinnamon, and sugar and set to the side. In another bowl mix together the egg, sour cream, and melted butter. Pour the egg mixture into the bowl with the dry ingredients and blend just until incorporated. Add the zucchini and blueberries and gently fold in.
- Spread in the prepared spring form pan.
- Prepare the topping. Mix all the dry ingredients together and add the melted butter. Mixed until all ingredients are combined. Sprinkle over top of the cake.
- Bake in the preheat 350 degree F oven for 55 to 60 minutes or until a wooden pick comes out clean.

I love that there is zucchini in there. This is a must try. Love it.
wow! I love coffee flavours in cakes and this looks so tempting!
Oh my! I need a big slice of this right now to go with my coffee. It looks fantastic! Earlier this week, I noticed that I had some zucchini in my crisper that needed to get eaten before it went bad. I wish I had come across this recipe earlier so that I could have used up the zucchini by making this. But, now, I will have to save it for later. 🙂
Hi Dawn, I love baking with zucchini too, love this coffee cake, especially the topping.
