A little time to reflect and be grateful for all that you have. I was thinking about that today and enjoying my tea with this lovely Blueberry Nut Streusel Coffee Cake.
I am guilty of not taking time but today, I decided to stop and enjoy the morning. The weather here in southern Florida was just beautiful - not too hot but sunny and breezy.
A great morning to share with you this Blueberry Nut Streusel Coffee Cake.
I must confess that you should let this coffee cake cool for about 30 minutes, but I was too anxious to wait that long. What happened to taking time to reflect? I know, I just wanted to taste it. It smelled so good baking.
I think there is something about blueberries in coffee cake - they just seem to go together. Do you agree?
Add in a nut streusel, frosting and you have just made my morning.
If you need a few moments to yourself in the morning or maybe you just want to enjoy some blueberry coffee cake, grab your tea or coffee and try this tasty Blueberry Nut Streusel Coffee Cake.
