Blackberry Coffee Cake

I was raised eating full-fat baked goods. My mother didn’t believe in low fat anything and naturally, I am skeptical of anything labeled low  or reduced fat. Why eat something if it’s not in its genuine fat and calorie laden form? I think I will begin making an exception to my rule with this coffee cake. It’s wonderfully moist and not too sweet. Perfect breakfast food on a lazy sunday morning.


Blackberry Coffee Cake

Adapted from Whole Foods Market Recipe

For the streusel topping:

4 tbs butter

½ cup all purpose flour

½ cup light brown sugar

½ tsp ground cinnamon

½ tsp ground cardamom

1 ½ cups all-purpose flour

¼ cup white sugar

2 tsp baking powder

½ tsp baking soda

¼ tsp salt

1 cup plain non-fat yogurt

1 ½ tsp vanilla extract

2 eggs

1 cups fresh blackberries

1/3 cup sliced almonds

What you need to do:

First preheat oven to 350 degrees (f). Spray 8-inch square cake pan with nonstick cooking spray. Set aside.

Assemble streusel topping, blending with fork or fingers. Set aside.

In a large mixing bowl combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Set aside.

I small bowl, whisk together yogurt, eggs, and vanilla. Mix into flour mixture. Gently fold in one cup of blackberries. Pour batter into prepared pan.
