That is a little slice of breakfast heaven on a plate.
It’s the fluff of the cake, and the sweetness of the crumbled topping, and the teeniest bit of tart from the softened blueberries.
The key to making the perfect coffee cake isn’t the coffee. It’s the full fat yogurt. (At least in my opinion.) Sour cream in the batter has a similar effect, but full fat yogurt doesn’t leave as much of a tangy cake aftertaste. Hence why this recipe calls for full fat yogurt.
Go ahead and get this made and enjoy yourself a little taste of heaven.
