Blueberry Coffee Cake with Maple Glaze

Last week, I shared a recipe for Sinful Strawberry Muffins and I might have mentioned how much I love fresh, Ontario strawberries. Well, I didn’t mention that fresh, WILD, Ontario blueberries (the tiny ones) are my all time favourite type of berry, did I?

The last time I made this cake was back in 2007 for Super Bowl. I cannot believe that my daughter wasn’t even two at the time. I made notes on the recipe that we made it for my husband for Super Bowl. I love the fact that I have been baking cakes with my daughter since she was that little! I remember baking cakes wearing my babies in a front carrier so that they could see what I was doing. It was like I was running the Mommy baking show because I would talk to them about every step that I was taking and they LOVED to listen, and look, and perhaps even drool!

A delicious and moist blueberry coffee cake. Perfect for a snack or served with ice cream for dessert.
  • 4 eggs, separated
  • 1 3/4 cup sugar
  • 3 tsp vanilla
  • 1 cup oil
  • 1 tsp lemon flavouring OR lemon juice
  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 3 tsp baking powder
  • 2 cups blueberries (fresh or frozen)
  • 1/2 cup blueberries (for bottom of pan)
  • 1/2 cup icing sugar (for glaze)
  • 2 Tbsp pure maple syrup OR maple flavouring (for glaze)
  • 2-3 tsp milk (for glaze)
  1. With an electric mixer (I use a Kitchen Aid mixer), beat egg whites for approximately 5 minutes or until quite frothy.
  2. Add the sugar, vanilla, oil and lemon flavouring and continue to beat for 30 seconds until mixed together well.
  3. In a separate bowl, combine the flour and baking powder. Add blueberries and stir until blueberries are coated.
  4. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and gently fold together (with a spatula) until combined. Be sure not to over fold as the cake will turn out too dense.
  5. Pour 1/2 cup of blueberries into the bottom of a bundt or tube pan. Pour batter into pan. Bake at 350 degrees F for 45 – 60 minutes or until toothpick inserted comes out clean.
  6. Let cake COOL in the pan on a cooling rack.
  7. For the glaze, in a small bowl or measuring cup, stir together icing sugar, maple syrup and 2 tsp milk.
  8. Continue to add a small amount of milk until the icing runs off of your fork.
  9. Turn cake out of pan onto a plate and drizzle the glaze over top.

        • I promise Kristen that this cake really isn’t all that tricky to make! It looks fancy because of the shape of the pan and the “maple drizzle” which I did by mixing the glaze with a fork and pouring out of a measuring cup onto the cake! EASY PEASY!

I love the maple syrup glaze.

    • Oooo! How exciting that you have another recipe to add to your collection! I hope he enjoys it!
