Cranberry Coffee Cake is another recipe on our growing list of great cake recipes! This is a hit for coffee lovers like me, and even those who don't drink coffee! It's that good!
The flavors in this dessert complement each other well. Orange zest and berries are a match made in heaven.
Cinnamon also improves that. You can try it on the topping and the filling.

Speaking of topping, you have a crumbly streusel topping that I love. The texture complements the moist and rich cake perfectly.

What is a coffee cake?
It is a kind of pastry that is served with coffee. It may or may not have real coffee, but it's usually topped with streusel and has nuts and spices.
Since it can be fruit-based as in this recipe, there are many variations. Aside from this recipe, you can check out our cherry cream cheese version!
Do you have to thaw frozen blueberries before baking?
No. The fruit is almost water in composition and its thawing could ruin it. Don't worry, it will be perfectly fine when you throw it frozen.
Is it better to bake with fresh or frozen blueberries?
The frozen ones are as good as the fresh ones, even without defrosting. You can rinse it first in a strainer and use it the same way that fresh ones should be used in a recipe.
How do you make a blueberry coffee cake?
- Prepare the pan: Grease it and sprinkle a little flour.
- Prepare the dough: In a bowl, combine the dry ingredients first. Then mix the butter until it crumbles. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix until fluffy. Add the fruits. Pour half of the dough into the pan.
- Make the filling: Just mix the ingredients until they crumble. Distribute over the dough and then pour over the remaining dough.
- Add the topping: Mix sugar, cinnamon and salt. Then, mix the melted butter with a fork. Add flour and orange zest. Mix everything and then sprinkle over the berries.
- To bake: Put it in the oven at 350 degrees Fahrenheit and cook for about 45 to 50 minutes. Then let it cool to room temperature before serving.
- To serve: Prepare the frosting combining sugar, milk and vanilla extract. Mix well, then pour over top of cake before serving.
You can use the same recipe but alter the fruit. Instead of blueberry, you can use raspberry, blueberry, blackberry, or a combination of these fruits.
How to store blueberry coffee cake:
- Refrigerate: Covered with a wrap or aluminum foil, it can stay well in the refrigerator for up to a week.
- Freeze: You can keep it in the freezer for 2 to 3 months. Remember to let it cool down completely, then wrap it in plastic wrap. Put it in a freezer bag. Thaw overnight in the refrigerator before serving.
- When defrosting, you can cut a single portion or just enough so you don't need to defrost everything.
- You can substitute fresh blueberries instead of frozen ones. And if you have excess, you can freeze them by arranging them in a single layer on a baking sheet. Then freeze them in the freezer. Then you can put them in a freezer bag. In this way, you can avoid having a solid mass of frozen berries.
- You can add walnuts or walnuts if you like.
