Lemon Blueberry Coffee Cake

My mom used to have her friends over all the time for a “kaffeeklatsch” and she would serve all kinds of coffee cake. This is one of my favs. It’s moist and bursting with blueberries. Enjoy!

Lemon Blueberry Coffee Cake


  • ½ cup butter, softened
  • zest of 1 lemon
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 3/4 cup flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 cups fresh blueberries (rinsed & tossed with 1/4 cup flour)
  • ½ cup buttermilk
  • 1 TBS sugar for topping


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease an 8 inch square pan. I also line it with parchment paper. Set aside.
  2. Cream butter, lemon zest and sugar in a large bowl, until light & fluffy. Add the egg and vanilla. Beat until combined. I used a hand mixer.
  3. Combine the flour, baking powder and salt. Add half of the flour mixture to the batter, and using a spatula fold it in. Add all of the buttermilk & incorporate. Add remaining flour and fold in.
  4. Fold in the blueberries coated with flour.
  5. Put batter in prepared pan. Sprinkle with a tablespoon of sugar.
  6. Bake for 30-40 minutes. Cake is done when toothpick comes out clean.
  7. Remove from oven and let cool.
