Starbucks Blueberry Coffee Cake


I believe this morning coffee cake is one of the most popular baked items at Starbucks. You can substitute raspberries for blueberries if you like. It goes well with all kinds of coffees or even just plain milk.

Ingredients (for about 6 servings)

For the Cake:
1 egg
1 cup milk
1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 1/2 tsps baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp ground mace
1 cup fresh blueberries

For the Topping:

2 tbsps unsalted butter
1/3 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup all-purpose flour


To make the topping, combine cinnamon, sugar and flour in a small bowl.

Add butter and beat with a pastry blender until the mixture is crumbly.
Set aside.

To make the cake, beat together the egg, milk and butter in a large bowl.

Sift flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and mace into a bowl.

Add the egg mixture and beat together until well blended.

Stir in blueberries.

Lightly butter a 9-inch-diameter cake pan.

Evenly spread the cake batter in the pan and sprinkle with the topping.

Bake in a preheated 350 F oven for about 40 - 45 minutes.
