Blueberry Almond-Streusel Coffeecake
1/2 Cup slivered almonds
1/2 Cup sugar
5 Tablespoon flour
2 Teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 Cup ( 1/2 stick) butter or margarine
2 1/2 Cup flour
2 Teaspoon baking powder
1 Teaspoon baking soda
1/2 Teaspoon salt
3/4 Cup (1 1/2 sticks) butter or margarine
1 1/4 Cups sugar
1 Cup sour cream
1 Teaspoon almond extract
2 Cups fresh blueberries, divided
1/2 Cup powdered sugar
1/2 Teaspoon vanilla
1 to 2 Tablespoon milk
Toast the almonds in a frying pan over low-medium heat, stirring frequently, about 7 minutes, until they begin to color and become fragrant. Pour out of the pan and set aside. In a small bowl, combine the 1/2 cup of sugar, the 5 tablespoons of flour and the cinnamon. Cut in the 1/2 stick of butter with a pastry blender or two knives held side-by-side, until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in the cooled almonds and set aside.
To prepare the cake: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour a 9-by 13-inch pan. Sift together the 2 1/2 cups of flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Cream the 1 1/2 sticks of butter in the large bowl of an electric mixer, add the 1 1/4 cups of sugar and beat until the mixture is fluffy. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each. Beat in the flour mixture in thirds, alternating with additions of sour cream, blending well after each addition. Beat in the almond extract.
Pour a generous half of the batter into the prepared pan and smooth it out to fill the pan. Top with half of the blueberries. Dot the remaining batter over the blueberries in large spoonfuls, then gently spread it to more-or-less cover the blueberries. Sprinkle with the remaining blueberries, then crumble the almond topping mixture over them. Bake 40 to 45 minutes, until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean.
Meanwhile, prepare the glaze: Combine the powdered sugar, vanilla and just enough of the milk to make a pourable glaze. Drizzle it over the still-hot coffeecake. Serve warm or at room temperature.
