How did coffee cake get its name?

How did coffee cake get its name? The answer to this question is not definitively known, but there are a few possible explanations. One theory is that coffee cake was named for its similarity to coffee in color and flavor. Another possibility is that the cake was originally intended as a breakfast food to be eaten with coffee, hence the name. It’s also possible that coffee cake was simply named for the addition of coffee in the recipe.

No matter how it got its name, coffee cake is a delicious and popular dessert!

Does coffee cake actually have coffee in it?

Many people believe that coffee cake does actually have coffee in it, but this is not the case. Coffee cake is typically a dessert that is made with spices like cinnamon and nutmeg, as well as raisins or other dried fruit. There may be a small amount of coffee in the batter, but it is not usually enough to give the cake any real flavor.

Why do my blueberries sink in my cake?

When baking a cake, blueberries have a tendency to sink to the bottom. This is because they are heavier than other ingredients like sugar or flour. There are a few ways to prevent this from happening. One is to coat the blueberries in some of the dry ingredients before adding them to the batter.

Another is to add more leavening agents like baking soda or baking powder, which will help lighten and lift the cake. And finally, try using frozen blueberries instead of fresh – they will hold their shape better in the oven.

Best Sour Cream Cake Variations

This is one of my favorite coffee cake recipes. It ranks at the top with Pumpkin Spice Coffee Cake Recipe and  Lemon Blueberry Coffee Cake. If you want the best sour cream cake variations, here are some ideas:

Eliminate the blueberries: While these blueberries take this recipe over the top, you can certainly make it without the blueberries.

Switch the berries: Consider using diced strawberries, raspberries or other berries you enjoy. This will add different flavors to the Sour Cream Cake

Frozen Berries: While there is no doubt that this cake should be made with fresh blueberries for the best tasting cake, you can use frozen berries if fresh are not available. Make sure to thaw the berries completely and let them dry with paper towels. This will keep the cake from getting too much extra moisture.

Being busy all the time and on the go, I need something that I can take with me as breakfast food a lot of my mornings. Something that I can grab a slice of and go is ideal. I am sure that you have those mornings where you are in such a hurry that wondering when you can stop and eat something for breakfast has crossed your mind. This Blueberry Sour Cream Coffee Cake is your answer.

What to Serve with Blueberry Sour Cream Coffee Cake

My sweet tooth always seems to get the best of me in the middle of the day as well. So I don’t really have to feel guilty about eating this for a midday snack. Besides snacking on it, it makes a great breakfast or brunch idea. Enjoy it with a nice cup of coffee. If you decide to make it for a brunch idea, you can consider these other brunch recipes to serve with it. 

Can Blueberry Coffee Cake be Frozen?

One of the great things about this Blueberry Coffee Cake is that I want to make sure we always have it on hand, I can easily make a double, well, sometimes a triple batch just so I have one to freeze. If you find that your family falls in love with this Blueberry Sour Cream Coffee Cake, you may need to make a double batch so it doesn’t disappear on you.

There have been times that I have made this as breakfast and I didn’t even get one piece! That’s when you know you have struck gold with a recipe. When it gets gobbled up before the cook can even get any, it needs to be made in bulk.

If you want to freeze the Blueberry Coffee Cake, be sure to store it in an airtight container, wrapped well in plastic wrap, or store it in a freezer bag. The cake will stay fresh in the freezer for up to 3 months. When you are ready to serve the cake, simply let it thaw at room temperature. 

When to Make Blueberry Sour Cream Coffee Cake

Always a fan of regular coffee cake or a good streusel, this has become something I will make on a Sunday evening so that we have an easy breakfast on Monday morning. You have enough going on with the start of a week, right?

This recipe is the best of both worlds whether you want a coffee cake or a blueberry dessert. It’s like those two things had a child and it’s a masterpiece! I promise you that you won’t look at coffee cake the same way once you have made this. Nothing says that your breakfast has to be something like an egg white with wheat toast.
