Blueberry Walnut Coffee Cake

The Blueberry Walnut Cake from the book Coffee Cakes: Simple, Sweet and Savory by Lou Seibert Pappas is the next bake for the members of The Home Bakers. The Home Bakers  is hosted by Joyce from Kitchen Flavours. If you are keen to join us, please contact Joyce.


Actually its supposed to be a Raspberry Almond Cake but because raspberries are expensive locally and I'm allergic to almonds so I've decided to substitute with blueberries and walnuts. I think the combination works well and goes nicely with the streusel topping. 


I simply love how the blueberries look like jewels sparkling in the sun in the above photo! The cake was moist and delicious with a hint of lemon flavours. The streusel was certainly the best part.

  13. Hi Mich,
    This cake is great with any berries! I used frozen mulberries and they were great! We love this cake, really moist, and delicious to eat!
    Raspberries are way too expensive to use in a cake! :)

  21. Oh, now only I know that you are allergic to almonds. I thought the nuts allergic issue is only happening in Western country. Silly me! I love your version of using the walnut instead. I think the crunchiness of the walnuts should taste much better than the almonds. If raspberries are not in season, I normally use the frozen type which is said to be a better choice to use in baking.
