Blackberry Coffee Cake

You guys, I love the topping on coffee cake, especially on this Blackberry Coffee Cake. So, I put it in the middle too. Yup, delicious!
Don’t forget to take the survey up on the right. And, if you missed the weekly menu check yesterday’s post.

Does Coffee Cake Contain Coffee?

Coffee cake is a moist, tender cake that is usually topped with streusel.

A coffee cake might have coffee in it, but the name comes from the fact that it is served with coffee, not because it has coffee in it.

How Long Will Coffee Cake Keep?

Coffee cake will keep for about 2 days at room temperature.

To maintain moisture and freshness, coffee cake should be covered tightly with foil or plastic wrap.

Will Blackberry Seeds Hurt You?

The center and seeds of blackberries can be bitter to some.

But, it is perfectly safe to eat the whole blackberry, including the seeds.

The seeds add beneficial dietary fiber.

  • replaced butter with oil and added chopped pecans to topping. Cut out 1/4 cup white sugar. And still yummy.
