Paleo Blueberry Coffee Cake

I made this Blueberry Coffee Cake for our Easter Brunch a few weeks ago and it was a big hit with big and small! This recipe is from Elana’s Pantry

It is not very sweet and the almond flour gives it a rich hearty flavor.

Greek Yogurt Coffee Cake

This is a recipe that my mom used to make for us all the time when we were kids.  Obviously, not with Greek Yogurt, but I love substituting it into recipes 🙂  It has more protein and is so thick and creamy!

Added bonus, it’s SO easy to make and only has a few ingredients-score!  I made this for our Mother’s Day brunch, and it was a total hit 🙂Blog Greek Yogurt Coffee Cake Ingredients

  • 2 Cups Bisquick
  • 1/4 Cup Sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons butter softened
  • 1 Egg
  • 2 5oz containers of Greek Yogurt.  I used flavored (one honey and one blackberry)
  • 1 Teaspoon Vanilla

Topping

(honestly, this got cut off when my mom photocopied the recipe for me, so I guessed haha)

  • 1/4 Cup Bisquick
  • 1 Tablespoon Brown Sugar

Directions

  • preheat oven to 375
  • Mix all the ingredients for the coffee cake and pour into 8×8 greased pan
  • Mix streusel topping and sprinkle over coffee cake mixture
  • Bake for 30-45 minutes or until cake bounces back to touch.  I prefer under cooking a little 😉
  • Can top with a little more Greek Yogurt and fresh berries

Enjoy!dit-elle-Lauren
