Lots of Blueberries Coffee Cake

This recipe has been one of my family’s favourites since I was a kid. My mother would whip this up in a moments notice when local friends or family would call and say “Put the coffee on, we’re dropping by!”

There is nothing ‘sweeter‘ than serving your guests something amazingly delicious, hot out of the oven that’s made with love by you!
