Blueberry Muffin Cake

Blueberry Muffin Cake

Just when I think I’v e made all the blueberry recipes I could ever hope to try, another one jumps out at me. That’s the case with this absolutely delicious blueberry muffin cake!  I saw a picture of this cake on Pinterest and immediately wanted to try it. Perfect timing, since I had just gone blueberry picking and had fresh berries just waiting to be baked with. 🙂

The blueberry muffin cake was everything I hoped it would be – soft and tender cake, crunchy crumb topping, and a perfectly sweet glaze on top! By itself the cake isn’t overly sweet, and it really does taste like blueberry muffins.

The sweet and crunchy topping and the vanilla glaze are what turn this cake into something special. I’m actually not a huge fan of blueberry baked goods (I make lots of them though because Mike loves them!), but I would eat this cake just for the topping – it’s that delicious! 🙂 You can use frozen berries in this recipe as well, so if it’s not still blueberry season where you are you don’t have to miss out.

I served this cake as dessert after dinner, but I think you could also pass it off as a breakfast coffee cake. Yum! Try this one before summer is over – you’re going to love it!
