Coffee Cake


I have never been a big breakfast person but this is one I must share!  When I was growing up this was one of my favorites that Dad would make on Sunday mornings.  It is a great dish to take to a brunch or just a treat on a weekend morning!

Blueberry Muffin Coffee Cake
1 package Duncan Hines Blueberry Muffin Mix
2 tablespoons cooking oil
1 egg
1/2 cup water
1/3 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon

Topping:
Combine 1 tablespoon muffin mix, brown sugar and cinnamon with a fork.  Set aside.  

Coffee Cake:
Empty blueberries into strainer.  Wash under cold running water.  Set aside and drain.  Add the egg, oil and water to the blueberry muffin mix.  Mix with a fork until blended (about 1-2 minutes).  Sprinkle drained berried onto the batter and fold in gently with fork.  Cover dish with wax paper. 

Bake:
Cook in microwave for 4 minutes covered.  The cake is done when only slightly moist on top -- DO NOT OVERBAKE.  Remove wax paper and sprinkle with topping evenly over hot cake. 

Cook one minute uncovered on high.  Let stand for 10 minutes on flat surface.  
Pin It!
