Blackberry coffee cake

May 7, 2012 § 4 Comments

Yesterday we had to forgoe our usual breakfast out, as we each headed out to perform different tasks.  I had to make preparations for a workshop, and Dave had to do some work on the property.  So, I made a blackberry coffee cake to sustain us until dinner.  It was delicious, and not too sweet.  This breakfast snack will work for any kind of berries…blackberries, blueberries, cherries, strawberries.  Whatever you have on hand.  We liked it so much we ended up having it for Sunday dinner dessert as well.  If you feel like it, add half a teaspoon of vanilla and some orange or lemon zest.

Breakfast berry coffee cake

1/2 cup butter, melted

3/4 cup sugar

2 eggs

1/2 cup Greek yogurt

2 cups flour

2 teaspoons baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

2 cups berries, washed, pitted and prepared (we used blackberries)

1 tablespoon sugar

Preheat the oven to 350-degrees fahrenheit.

Stir together the butter, sugar, eggs, and yogurt; set aside.  Whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt.  Gently fold dry ingredients into the butter mixture.  Fold in the berries.  Scoop into a greased 9-inch by 9-inch pan.  Sprinkle with the 1 tablespoon sugar.  Bake for about an hour, until a knife comes out clean.
