This coffee cake combined with a cup of coffee is scientifically proven to make your day a hundred times better, make you a million times more productive, and put you in a BILLION times better mood. You can’t argue with science.

My love for sour cream blueberry anything formed in college. There was this little coffee shop on campus that sold the most AMAZING sour cream blueberry muffins. Really they were more like cupcakes. (The first ingredient was cake mix, but you can eat cupcakes for breakfast when you’re in college.) Inspired by my daily blueberry muffin and coffee, I decided to relive my college days with this Sour Cream Blueberry Coffee Cake. This cake is thicker and less sweet than the muffins from college, but so am I.

This winter I’m not eating nearly as many sweets as an I would in a typical holiday season. There are no surprise treats in the office or cookies swaps with friends. So I really do enjoy my mid-day cup of coffee with this Blueberry Coffee Cake. It’s a nice treat on an otherwise mundane Monday in my living room.

I love a thick, dense coffee cake. Using a fork to creaming the butter, sugar, and eggs together is the best way to ensure your cake is dense. Using a mixer would whip air into the batter producing a lighter coffee cake. It takes a little more elbow grease, but the thick, decadent coffee cake is worth it.

Cover the Blueberry coffee cake and store at room temperature for up to 2 days.
