Blueberry Almond Coffee Cake

  • Pinterest

I’ve been searching for a great Blueberry Cake recipe, as of late. Would you believe me if I told you I’ve made 4 over the past few months that were all just…meh. Nothing great or spectacular at all. And then, I came acrossed this heavenly recipe on Pinterest and knew I had to give it a try. Ladies and gentlemen, you will be happy to know that it is a pure delight. The cake is moist and rich with a heavenly almond and butter flavor. It’s full of sweet, plump blueberries, layered with sliced almonds and drizzled with a silky glaze.

You could serve it for breakfast, or as a dessert…either would be fabulous.
