Classic Blueberry Coffee Cake topped with a buttery pecan streusel and served warm, fresh out of the oven.


For the Blueberry Coffee Cake

  • 10 tbsp unsalted butter, such as Danish Creamery European-style butter, softened
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup light brown sugar
  • 2 tsp vanilla paste
  • 3 eggs, room temperature
  • Zest of 1 lemon
  • 1 cup full-fat Greek yogurt, or sour cream
  • 3 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 2 1/2 cups fresh blueberries

For the Pecan Streusel

  • 3/4 cup light brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 3/4 cup pecans, chopped
  • 8 tbsp unsalted butter, cold and cubed


For the Blueberry Coffee Cake

  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Line the bottom of a tube pan with parchment paper and spray the sides with non-stick baking spray.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the dry ingredients; flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Set aside.
  3. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat butter, sugar, brown sugar and vanilla paste, until fluffy and pale. This can take 5-6 minutes beating on medium-low. Add one egg at a time, while beating, followed by the lemon zest, until fully incorporated.
  4. Alternate adding the dry ingredients and Greek yogurt, in 2 or 3 additions, beginning and ending with the dry ingredients.
  5. Fold in blueberries.
  6. Spoon batter into the prepared tube pan, spreading evenly using the back of a spoon or an angled spatula.
  7. Evenly sprinkle the pecan streusel over the batter. Bake for 45-50 minutes, until toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Serve warm with extra butter!

To make the streusel: in a small bowl, add the brown sugar, flour, cinnamon, salt, chopped pecans and cold butter. Mix together using your hands until you have a crumbly mixture.
