Blueberry Overnight Coffeecake

Stirring up this healthy(er) coffeecake at night and baking it in the morning made the mad rush before church a little less mad.  And we even have leftovers for tomorrow’s First Day of School breakfast!

My son was so excited to wake up to “Cake for breakfast!”

    7. Hi! Does it have to be 1 cup wheat flour or can i just use 2 cups reg flour instead of 1 reg/1 wheat?

      PS: Last week we had ANOTHER double batch of the the cheesey potato soup with bacon! LOL

      • @Laura, I’ve only made it 1/2 and 1/2, but I see no reason why it wouldn’t work the other way!

        Yay for cheesy potato soup. Looking forward to fall weather so I can put that back in my meal rotation. 🙂

    8. I agree with your son, nothing like cake for breakfast! And ya know, there’s really nothing like cake for dinner, either 😉

    9. What a GREAT!!! coffee cake recipe. I love the idea of applesauce and yogurt in the recipe. These two ingredients will make it very moist. THANKS!!! for the YUMMY!!!! recipe. Geri

    11. Good morning and thank you for sharing! I love blueberries in cakes. mmmmm

    12. Not only does this look good, it’s also a great idea. How wonderful to have coffee cake oven ready in the morning. Those of us who are not morning people will forever sing your praise.

    13. My, that does sound healthy and tasty. You have some lucky children in your house! Thanks for sharing with us

    14. I made a berry coffeecake last Sunday, too. They devoured it while I was in the shower. I got one bite!

      Thanks for linking up at URS!

    15. Amy,

      Just so you know this is one of my favorite breakfast recipes. I actually make it with only whole wheat flour and I use Rapadura instead of the white and brown sugar and it is still amazing. Thanks again for the recipe.

      • Thanks so much for letting me know! It’s been so long since I’ve found blueberries at a good price that I haven’t been able to make it much. 🙁
