Do you like cake? What about cake for breakfast? If you like cake as much as I do, then I have the perfect breakfast cake recipe for you! Let me introduce to you a family favorite: Huckleberry Coffee Cake. As usual, this recipe is a family recipe, and my dad has been making it for as long as I can remember. In the summers, I would often wake up to the smell of this berry coffee cake baking in the oven, and I would get excited to devour a piece for breakfast.
This easy coffee cake recipe is stuffed to the brim with huckleberries, so every bite is an explosion of flavor. You can replace the huckleberries with blueberries or blackberries as well. The berries can be either frozen or thawed. Generally, I toss in frozen berries due to the ease of it, but if I have fresh berries on hand, I always choose fresh.
Homemade coffee cake has an aroma that lingers in your house for a few days, and I never complain about that! I love coming home to the smell of fresh huckleberry coffee cake. This cake is also dangerous as I, myself, can eat almost the entire pan in one day. I’m not kidding either. I love this easy homemade coffeecake!!
As crazy as it sounds, this tasty breakfast cake gets better if you allow it to sit for a day. It becomes sticky and bit gooier—a recipe for YUM! I won’t kid you though, I always have a bite fresh out of the oven. The taste of the cinnamon and sugar mixed with the tangy taste of huckleberries pairs perfectly and creates a scrumptious breakfast treat.
Go pick some huckleberries or whatever local berry you can get your hands on. If this is not an option, head to the store and pick out your favorite berry and load them on into this perfect coffee cake recipe!
