How to Make Cinnamon Oat Streusel

Streusel is a German word for the yummy crumbly topping that gets baked on muffins and cakes. It is one of my favorite parts and is so easy to make.

Combine all the streusel ingredients in a bowl with a fork or a pastry blender. This will make a thick crumb. Set aside. It will go on top of the blueberry coffee cake later.

How to Make Blueberry Coffee Cake

To begin making blueberry coffee cake, first preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Prepare a 9 inch springform pan with cooking spray.

Mix the first 6 ingredients together in a medium bowl, making sure its well combined. Cover the cake batter with blueberries before baking.

Combine the cinnamon and sugar in a separate small bowl and set aside. Reserve ¾ of the cinnamon sugar mixture for the middle of cake and the remainder to mix into the streusel.

Spread half of the batter into the prepared pan. Sprinkle 3/4 of the cinnamon sugar mixture over the cake. Place remaining batter over the cinnamon sugar mixture. You can do this in dollops. The batter will be very thick.

Mix remaining cinnamon sugar into the streusel and cover the cake with the streusel.

Bake the cake for 50 to 60 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean. Start checking the cake at 45 minutes because ovens vary. If the streusel starts to brown, cover with a piece of foil to prevent burning.

Your blueberry coffee cake is now ready! If you would like to top with a glaze, mix together ½ cup powdered sugar, 1-2 teaspoons milk and ¼ teaspoon vanilla extract. You can drizzle the glaze on the cake once it has cooled completely.
