Blueberry Cream Cheese Coffee Cake ~ Delicious Coffee Cake Stuffed with Blueberries and Cream Cheese! Topped with a Crumb Topping and Glaze!
*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.
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! If you like this recipe you have to check out my Crumb Cake, too!
