Introduction: Blueberry Spice Coffee Cake

You can make this recipe in a 10-inch springform pan. However, I like to make this coffee cake into smaller servings. I usually split the recipe in half since I’m only cooking for two. I use three 4-inch springform pans to bake the coffee cake and spread them out between a couple days. The coffee cakes can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 2 days. My husband and I like to split a mini coffee cake in the mornings with some hot tea or have it in the late afternoon as a snack. This recipe can also be found at
