Saturday Morning… I go away with my friend

Well, we actually just take some quality time together, part of which is some yummy break from our dietary regimen. This is one of our favorite Saturday morning dishes – Blueberry Coffeecake!
I got the recipe from Fitsugar.com who in turn got it from Whole Foods Market

Blueberry Coffee Cake

Nonstick cooking spray
2 tablespoons plus 1 cup whole wheat pastry flour, divided
1/4 cup light brown sugar or sucanat
2 tablespoons butter, cut into small pieces
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground cardamom (optional)
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup nonfat plain yogurt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 eggs
2 cups fresh or frozen, thawed and drained blueberries, divided
1/3 cup sliced almonds

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease a 9-inch round cake pan with cooking spray; set aside.
  2. Put 2 tablespoons of the whole wheat pastry flour, sugar, butter, cinnamon and cardamom in a small bowl and mix together with a fork or your fingers until well combined and mixture is in large clumps; set streusel aside.
  3. Put remaining 1 cup whole wheat pastry flour, all-purpose flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a large bowl and stir to combine; set aside.
  4. In a medium bowl, whisk together yogurt, vanilla and eggs then pour into bowl with dry ingredients and stir until combined.
  5. Gently fold in 1 cup of the blueberries.
  6. Spoon batter into prepared pan and sprinkle reserved streusel over the top. Scatter remaining 1 cup blueberries over the streusel then top with almonds.
  7. Bake until a toothpick inserted in the center cake comes out clean, 30 to 40 minutes. Once cooled, loosen edges of cake and transfer to a plate. Cut into slices and serve.

Serves 12 (Don’t believe it!) Yes, I do use butter; I do not believe in using margarine. Haven’t tried the newer ‘heart-healthy’ butter replacements, so I can’t say.
