*I was compensated by Lucky Leaf  to create this recipe & post. All opinions expressed are completely my own.

Breakfast is one of my favorite meals of the day and I think it gets forgotten about a lot of the time. Usually I’m inhaling a cold bowl of cereal or some eggs and trying to rush around getting Miss K ready so we can get out the door, to daycare and me to work on time! Let’s just say there isn’t a lot of leisurely time in the morning spent enjoying my breakfast yet alone making a delicious homemade breakfast. It just does not happen.

On the weekends I usually try to make one homemade breakfast if time allows. It usually falls on Saturday morning when we are laying around trying to get going for the weekend. I wish I was that awesome Mom on Sunday mornings that jumped out of bed early and greeted the morning with a smile on her face rushing to the kitchen to make breakfast for my family as they slept in and then awoke to the aromas a fresh baked breakfast.

I am not the Mom. Not in any way, shape or form am I that Mom. Do you want to know what type of Mom I am? Well if you don’t then skip to the recipe. If you do then keep reading.

I’m that Mom that is still laying in bed when my child wakes up and screams to wake me up. Then I’m usually the Mom that lays there and prays that her child might go back to sleep. Does this happen? No, usually not unfortunately. After about 15 minutes of Miss K whining I drag my lazy butt out of bed and go and get her. I greet her with a smile because really it’s not that bad! At least it’s usually after 7 am and not some horrific hour of the morning like 5 am. Please say a silent prayer that baby #2 does not punish me with an early alarm clock.

If baby #2 is a morning baby it will become it’s father’s child while I sleep. My husband does not have a choice in this. I will just inform him. Trust me, it’s better for the entire family if he embraces this duty and let’s me sleep. I need my sleep. Just ask my parents. Ask my husband. It gets ugly fast when I don’t get enough sleep.

Since I like breakfast and I like my sleep this causes a certain challenge. The perfect solution would be a husband that gets up a hour before me, makes me a hot cup of coffee, a homemade breakfast and wakes me up with a kiss when it’s ready. Who’s laughing with me? I do have to give him a little credit though. While I was dying from morning sickness this did happen. Well he let me sleep and him and Miss K made a whole lot of pancakes and eggs on the weekends while I tried to forget that I felt like I might die. So glad that’s over with.

Blueberry Cream Cheese Coffee Cake ~ Delicious Coffee Cake Stuffed with Blueberries and Cream Cheese! Topped with a Crumb Topping and Glaze!Since I don’t have a husband like that and I don’t have a servant the next best thing is getting up in the morning and trying to embrace the morning or making a breakfast the night before that I can enjoy in the morning! Guess what? I have a treat today that is going to fit both of those bills! It’s pretty easy, but it does take a while to cool and everything so I made it the night before. I was so excited that it stayed fresh in the fridge and with about a 20 second ride in the microwave it tasted like it was fresh out of the oven!

This Blueberry Cream Cheese Coffee Cake is stuffed with a cream cheese layer and blueberries. Then it’s topped with a yummy crumb topping and drizzled with a powdered sugar glaze. If you are looking for a weekend treat this is it! Enjoy it with an ice cold glass of milk or if you are me a large glass pot of coffee!

    Love this recipe. Could I use fresh blueberries? I’m thinking 2 cups would work? What do you think?

    • Julie Evink


      I think that would be just fine!

    • Madelynn


      I just made this dreamy coffee cake with fresh blueberries and it was awesome! I had a glass 2-cup measuring cup and just filled it to the top (so 2 1/4 cups maybe….). It was perfect.

      What a great recipe! It’s so good!!

      • Julie Evink


        So glad you enjoyed it Madelynn!

  • Gayle @ Pumpkin 'N Spice


    My mouth is watering just looking at this coffee cake, Julie! Especially with that cream cheese glaze. Pinned!

  • Medha @ Whisk & Shout


    These pictures are lovely! I just started my summer job and in an effort to save money and not hit Starbucks every morning, I’ve been kind of breakfast pastry-less. This looks like an amazing morning treat! 🙂

    • Julie Evink


      I hope this is the answer to your pastry-less breakfasts! No one should be pastry-less!! 🙂

  • Kristine @ Kristine's Kitchen


    Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day, and this coffee cake looks just perfect. I love that it’s stuffed with blueberries AND cream cheese! Yum!

  • Heather @ French Press


    now this is my idea of of a terrific weekend breakfast! My first child used to wake us up at 5:15 every single day 🙂 and now I have to wake him up most days

    • Julie Evink


      Oh I’m so sorry! I hope you are getting lots and lots of sleep to make up for that now!

  • Julia


    Uggggh I can taste those blueberries from a mile away! I absolutely love cream cheese and fruit treats, and this coffee cake looks like it would be perfecto alongside my Saturday morning pot of coffee 😀 Have a great weekend, my dear!

    • Julie Evink


      It would be Julia! I know I enjoyed my piece, or two with a big mug of coffee!

  • Julia Marie


    Julie,
    I made the Blueberry Cream Cheese Coffee Cake. It was awesome.I gave some of it to our neighbors who also loved it.
    I will be making this one again for sure.

    My best,
    Julia Marie

    • Julie Evink


      Oh thanks for telling me this! I love hearing when people have successes!!

  • Amy @ Amy's Healthy Baking


    I’m right there with you Julie — I need at least 8 hours of sleep every night! My mom told me I’ve been like that since I was born, and if I get anything less, I need an entire pot of coffee or 5 glasses of tea to keep me going until dinnertime. Whenever I end up having kids, I’ll pray my guy takes pity on me (even though he’s basically nocturnal) and help me out with breakfast in the mornings too! But that’s fabulous that you can make this gorgeous coffee cake (that crumb topping is calling my name; it’s always my favorite part!) the night before and reheat in the microwave. Already pinned!

    • Julie Evink


      I wonder if they make a drip IV of coffee for people like us?!

      • Amy @ Amy's Healthy Baking


        Oh my goodness, I wish!! Especially if it came with different flavors… Or at least a pastry on the side! 😉

  • Carol+at+Wild+Goose+Tea


    I make a lot of coffee cakes, but they don’t have that oozy yummy filling like this one does. I was captivated by the picture, so I had to pin it.

  • Amy


    Made this last night, and it looks just like the pictures, DELISH!! Wanting to cut into it, but unfortunately (for my belly right now), I’m taking it to a potluck. Only difference I made, was that I had to cook it about 10 min. longer, because it just wasn’t setting up right in the middle. If you want to make your guests or family happy, you’ve come to the right place! 🙂

    • Julie Evink


      I hope it tasted as good as it looked Amy!

  • KaCee


    This looks delicious! I love blueberries! I will have to try this recipe out this weekend.

  • Bonnie


    IAm confused.Recipe says, beat flour,sugar, b powd, and soda.did it mean combine? This looks sooo good i really want to make it but do not want to mess it up. Every one says it is great.They did not have a problem.feel kind ok stupid. B J

    • Karen


      Bonnie, I beat the butter, eggs and sugar together, then added the remaining ingredients. It worked out well that way because otherwise it can make the cake not… cake-y. Also, this is a thick batter so it doesn’t pour into the pan. Once I put the first half of the dough in the pan, added cream cheese mixture and blueberries, I had to kind of drop the remaining dough like tiny dumplings on top. But all that aside, it’s super tasty and totally worth making!

  • Angela


    My son is diabetic. How much of a difference would it make if I subbed Splenda for the sugar? This sounds incredible. Thanks.

    • Julie Evink


      Does Splenda make a “baking sugar” mix? I know Truvia does so I would make sure to use that if you sub it out!
