Mornings, Reflection and Blueberry Nut Streusel Coffee Cake

Some mornings are just quite ones. Do you ever have those? 

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.

We spend so much time running from here to there trying to get everything done that we don't often take the time to just sit and relax and reflect. Even if it is just for a few minutes. 


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?
