Blueberry Cinnamon Coffee Cake

Hello wonderful readers! For those of you who follow this blog regularly (and I love those of you who do!), it’s been a while! Over the summer I have been trying to post once every other day, however this last week that was a no-can do. For those of you curious as to my whereabouts, I spent the last week as a camp counselor to the coolest group of high school students ever. AKA I’ve been eating camp food, sleeping with spiders, getting up waaay too early, smelling like camp fires, and having a blast. All that nature and responsibility however did not allow for lots of internet or food blog access- woops.  Good news though, I am back in the game! Prepare yourself for some more yummy recipes headed your way- starting with this delicious blueberry cinnamon coffee cake. You’ve probably seen a picture of this yummy loaf in the header photo from time to time, but now you can finally make it on your own. I hope you enjoy it as much as we did! Also, I hope you had a lovely week.

Notes and Tips!:

  • Make sure you use a toothpick to ensure the inside of the bread is done cooking before removing from the oven! With moist bread this can be tricky. If the top is getting too brown however, cover with a sheet of aluminum foil and keep baking until the center is done.
