Lemon Blueberry Coffee Cake Tips

Can you make a streusel topping for lemon blueberry coffee cake?

Yes! You can make a simple crumble mixture of sugar, flour and cold butter. Use a coffee cake recipe like this one for reference. Because the glaze holds a lot of the tangy lemony goodness, you might want to include some lemon zest in your streusel to amp up the lemon flavor.

Should you let frozen blueberries thaw before folding them into the batter?

The trick with frozen berries is to keep them from tinting your entire batter blue. The best way to do so is to rinse the berries with cold water 2-3 times, until the water runs clear. Pat dry before gently folding them into your batter, just until combined—if you see blue streaks starting to form, stop.

How do you store lemon blueberry coffee cake?

You can store this glazed coffee cake like you would a frosted cake, in a cake keeper or airtight container at room temperature for 4-5 days. If you’ve cut a slice, press plastic wrap against the cut surface to keep it from drying out. You can also freeze it, whole or in pieces, for about 3 months. Just let it thaw at room temperature before serving.

Cookie Butter Pie .
I tasted Biscoff cookie spread at a grocery store one day, and it was so delicious that I decided to create a no-bake pie with it. You can make this pie your own by substituting peanut butter or another kind of spread for the Biscoff spread and then matching toppings. —Katrina Adams, Mount Olive, Alabama The post Cookie Butter Pie appeared first on Taste of Home.2 pies (8 servings each)
