Blueberry yoghurt coffee cake

Sokehah Cheah | 12:44 PM | | | | |


Don't be misconstrued by the word 'coffee' in this 'Blueberry yoghurt coffee cake' as coffee is certainly not an ingredient required in the making of this cake.  Coffee cake is just a class of cakes to be served alongside coffee or tea for breakfast, during coffee/tea breaks or even afternoon tea.  Some may have a streusel or a light glaze drizzle as topping but more often than not  they are flavoured with spices, nuts or fruits.












This cake is moist, not heavy but rich in flavour and the blueberries do add a little bit of texture to the cake.  Coffee, any one?

  8. Ha ha, the first time I saw a recipe for coffee cake, i was confused when I looked at the ingredients and there was no coffee :) Your cake looks beautifully moist. I love the shape too, I can never get my cake to come out of the bundt pan cleanly.

    Oh yes, you can. Just lightly grease the pan then sprinkle some flour over it, shake off any excess flour. But then the specks of flour may create holes on the surface of the cake
