Easter Brunch Blackberry Coffee Cake

Greetings of love from me to you, dear friends!
I want to express my gratitude to each one of you for taking the time
to visit the women that participated in the Tea Cup and Mug Exchange.
The exchange was another rewarding experience and it's all thanks to those that participated.
I am so grateful to those that joined the fun AND to those that cheered from the sidelines-
your comments, kindness, and support were a blessing.

I have a tasty coffee cake recipe that I wanted to share with you, my friends.
It would be a lovely addition to your Easter Brunch :)


Ingredients:
2 cups blackberries
1/4 cup water
1/4 cup sugar
2 tablespoons cornstarch
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 cup butter
1 beaten egg
1/2 cup buttermilk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla

For filling, in a medium saucepan combine fruit and water.
Bring to boiling.
Combine the 1/4 cup sugar and cornstarch; stir into fruit.
Cook and stir over medium heat until mixture is thickened and bubbly;
set filling aside.

In a medium bowl combine the 1 1/2 cups flour,
the 3/4 cup sugar, baking powder, and baking soda.
Cut in the 1/4 cup butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
Make a well in the center of the flour mixture; set aside.

In another bowl combine egg, buttermilk, and vanilla.
Add the egg mixture all at once to the flour mixture.
Using a wooden spoon, stir just until moistened
{batter should be lumpy}.
Spread half of the batter into an ungreased 8x8-inch baking pan.
Spread filling over batter.
Drop the remaining batter in small mounds onto filling.

For the crumble:
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup sugar
2 tablespoons butter
ground cinnamon

In a small bowl stir together the flour and sugar.
Cut in the butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
Sprinkle over coffee cake.
Sprinkle cinnamon over the top.
Bake at 350 degrees F for 40 - 45 minutes or until golden brown.


Serve the coffee cake warm 
and pour cream over the top - you won't be disappointed.

Do you have a favorite brunch dish that you enjoy on Easter?


Thanks for coming by.
Your visits and comments aways bring a smile to my face :)
May your day be bright and beautiful!
Hugs and blessings!

Oh my, Stephanie your blackberry coffee cake looks so delicious. I'm trying to wait for the weekend to make it, but this is not easy. I have berries in the freezer, and they are calling me now. I can't wait to try it. Thank you for sharing the recipe.
Have a great Monday!

Yummy!

Robyn said...

Yum! I love that we're getting into berry season soon, Stephanie, it's my favourite food and I can't get enough of them, lol.
This looks so delicious. Now if we were neighbours, I could cook salmon and shrimp for you and you could make the desserts. Deal?
Have a wonderful week, sweet lady. xoxo

Certainly looks delicious.

Home Meadows said...

The coffee cake looks really good. I think it is something my family would enjoy (I know I would). I printed out a low fat coffee cake that I thought I'd make for Easter morning before our service (I'm doing Weight Watchers). Then I'll fix a nice dinner to have later in the day. Happy Monday Stephanie, Heather

Sola Scriptura said...

Oh this looks delicious! Stephanie, you always share such lovely treat recipes. Thank you!

Camille said...

Yum! We don't have a traditional dish for Easter. Hmmm...have to think about that one. This year it's going to be a BIG pot of soup and some cream cheese cupcakes as we are to have a crowd in for lunch. May the Lord bless you as you celebrate His Resurrection!! How wonderful it is that He is Risen!!! Hugs, Camille

Sylvia said...

This looks great for Easter or any day of the week. Blueberries or Strawberries would be could also, with ice cream! Yummy!

Oh my goodness, this blueberry coffee cake looks scrumptious, Stephanie. I love blueberries and sometimes I put them in my oatmeal. You are a wonderful baker. You know, Jess is the baker in the family, and I love to bake too.

I noticed your sweet picture on your side bar. Wasn't that your original profile picture, I remember that one. You look so pretty.

Have a very nice Easter week, my cherished friend.

Baking is pure bliss, is it not...? This looks just delicious, dear Stephanie! Blackberries are simply the best!
I love making homemade Hot Cross Buns for breakfast on Good Friday...we enjoy them throughout the year, but add the crosses and glaze at Easter time! Hmmm...I love how spicy they are and the tang of the orange zest we like to add!
Sunshine and smiles for the your week!
Hugs and love,
Kelly

Just too delicious, am saving this recipe to try when blackberries are available. Here in Spain they are considered `exotic´fruits and hardly anyone eats them :-(
