Anyone have a really good blueberry coffee cake recipe? I am also willing to entertain another coffee cake recipe with a different fruit in it. I have a few really yummy traditional coffee cake recipes, but wanted one with fruit of some sort. Thanks!
Just made a blueberry pound cake recipe that could pass for coffee cake well. If you have a copy, it was originally published in a Jackson, Missippi Junior League cookbook from the 1970’s entitled “Southern Sideboards.” AbeBooks has it here: http://www.abebooks.com/servlet/BookDetailsPL?bi=10277754650&searchurl=sts%3Dt%26tn%3Dsouthern%2Bsideboards for ~$4.00 (with free shipping!). If you can’t get it, etc., but still want the recipe, please contact me privately and I’ll be glad to send it to you :)
Hi, direct from UK. cheers.
