There is not too much to say about this cake except that it was super simple to make and downright delicious. I really enjoyed baking this cake because this is the type of baking that is comfortable and relaxing for me. It is stress relief baking at its finest.
The aroma of cinnamon and nutmeg filled my kitchen even before I put this in the oven and it came out looking and smelling unbelievable. My cake baked for 1 hour in a glass Pyrex dish and I was worried about over browning, so about 15 minutes before it was done I covered it loosely with foil.
I think this is the quintessential simple coffee cake. The blueberries were sweet and moist and the topping was nutty and buttery. This cake is a really great base for playing with different flavors. You can really pick your poison as far as fruit goes and then pair it with the best accompanying citrus zest. I also think this cake would be great with some coconut mixed into the batter. I would also like to try making a layer of the topping inside the cake.
To serve, we drizzled a lemon glaze over the top of a few slices (good idea, honey;)), which added a nice sweetness to the buttery cake and topping.
This got 2 thumbs up from us, as well as from co-workers in both our offices.
