Frequently Asked Questions

Can I make blueberry breakfast cake with frozen blueberries?

Yes. You can certainly use frozen blueberries for this cake. For the best results, remove the berries from the freezer just before adding to the batter, and do not thaw them. Mix the batter just enough to incorporate the frozen berries, then cook as directed. The cooking time will be the same. 

Is this coffee cake with blueberries gluten free?

As written, this recipe is not gluten free. While I have not tested this option, if you replace the all-purpose flour with a one-to-one gluten free baking mix, you can make this gluten free. The cake’s texture may be altered slightly when using gluten free flour. 

How do I store and reheat coffee cake with blueberries?

Store the cake at room temperature for one day or in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 7 days. Serve at room temperature or warm slightly in the microwave. Heat individual slices in 10 second increments until the cake is warmed through. 

Can I freeze blueberry breakfast cake?

Yes! Cool the cake completely, then wrap in two layers of plastic wrap and then tightly in aluminum foil. Store for up to 3 months. Remove the wrapping and defrost at room temperature for several hours. 

What to serve with this easy breakfast cake?

Blueberry breakfast cake is sweet and moist and pairs perfectly with a cup of hot tea or hot coffee or cold Whipped Coffee. To really round out this breakfast, serve the cake with Fruit Salad, or a dollop of whipped cream.
