Blueberry breakfast cake

Blueberry breakfast cake is a delightful treat that’s perfect for starting your day on a sweet note. Here’s a simple recipe to make a moist and flavorful blueberry breakfast cake:


  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup milk (you can use regular milk or a plant-based alternative)
  • 2 cups fresh or frozen blueberries (if using frozen, do not thaw)
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour (for coating blueberries)

For the topping:

  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon


  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Grease a 9×9-inch baking dish or line it with parchment paper for easy removal.
  2. In a mixing bowl, cream together the softened butter and granulated sugar until light and fluffy.
  3. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in the vanilla extract.
  4. In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt.
  5. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, alternating with the milk, until well combined. The batter will be thick.
  6. In a small bowl, toss the blueberries with 1 tablespoon of flour until they are coated. This will help prevent them from sinking to the bottom of the cake.
  7. Gently fold the coated blueberries into the batter until evenly distributed.
  8. Spread the batter evenly into the prepared baking dish, smoothing the top with a spatula.
  9. In a small bowl, mix together the 2 tablespoons of granulated sugar and ground cinnamon for the topping. Sprinkle this mixture evenly over the top of the batter.
  10. Bake the blueberry breakfast cake in the preheated oven for 40-45 minutes, or until golden brown on top and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  11. Remove the cake from the oven and let it cool in the baking dish for about 10 minutes before serving.
  12. Slice the blueberry breakfast cake into squares and serve warm or at room temperature. Enjoy with a cup of coffee or tea for a delicious start to your day!

This blueberry breakfast cake is moist, tender, and bursting with juicy blueberries. It’s a wonderful way to enjoy the flavors of summer all year round.
