Did you know that as long as you put the word coffee in front of cake then it is perfectly acceptable for you to have cake for breakfast…say Hello to Coffee Cake aka ‘I’m having cake for breakfast’ and this is not just any old type of coffee cake, but way better because blueberries and pecans are baked inside this coffee cake. And just in case you thought that I would stop there, then I take it up another notch by adding a streusel topping.

You may be thinking to yourself ‘what in the world is a streusel topping’ and let me tell you that it is the perfect combination of flour, butter, and sugar coming together to form the ultimate crumbly topping of goodness.

This coffee cake is also made in one bowl and can be whipped up in less than an hour. It is the perfect treat to make if you have unexpected company to drop by and pay you a visit because they will think that this recipe is way more labor intensive than it actually is.

Also if you find that you are not a fan of blueberries or just don’t have any in your fridge or freeze, then you can absolutely substitute in strawberries, raspberries, peaches, apples, or any fruit and nut combination that you prefer. You really cannot mess up this recipe at all…it is just that easy.
