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.
