A delicious addition to your breakfast table, or enjoy a slice as an afternoon snack.  Fresh berries work well, but if they aren't available or in season, try this recipe with (thawed) frozen berries.  Either way, it's sure to please!

Ingredients

  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup non-fat milk
  • 1/2 cup yogurt, non-fat vanilla
  • 3 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons lemon peel (grated, yellow only)
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cups fresh (or frozen unsweetened) blueberries

When tightly wrapped in plastic wrap, this coffee cake will keep for 3 to 4 days in the refrigerator. It also freezes very well.
