Blueberry goodness

Playgroup was a success even though my child didn't play...or stay awake for that matter. It was nice to be out and meet some other mommies, though, and I think we'll make playgroup a regular activity. The Blueberry Coffee Cake was also a success, and here's the recipe, as promised:


1/6C All-purpose flour
1/6C Whole wheat flour
1/3C Brown sugar
1/2tsp Cinnamon
1/4C Cold butter, cut into pieces

Cake batter:
1/2C All-purpose flour
1/2C Whole wheat flour
1tsp Baking powder
1/8tsp kosher salt
1/4C Unsweetened applesauce
1/2C Brown sugar
1 large egg
1/2tsp vanilla extract
1/3C Skim milk
2C blueberries (I used frozen)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease 8" springform pan.

For streusel: mix all dry ingredients. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse meal.

For cake: In a separate bowl, mix together flour, baking powder, and salt. Beat sugar and applesauce until well combined. Add egg and vanilla and mix well. Alternately add milk and flour mixture and beat until just blended. Spread mixture into pan. Arrange blueberries on top and sprinkle with streusel mixture. Bake 45-50 minutes or until it passes the toothpick test.
