See the recipe card for quantities.
Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Grease an 8-inch square baking pan or line it with parchment paper.
For the cake, in a large bowl whisk together the Bisquick, milk, sour cream, sugar, and egg until smooth.
Fold in the blueberries.
Pro tip: "Folding in" is a technique used in baking that involves gently mixing ingredients without deflating the batter. When a recipe calls for folding in an ingredient, it typically means to add it to the batter using a spatula or wooden spoon and then gently turning the batter over itself until the ingredient is evenly distributed.
Pour the batter into the prepared pan.
To make the streusel, in a separate bowl mix together the brown sugar, Bisquick, cold butter cubes, and ground cinnamon. Cut the cold butter into the mixture with a fork or pastry cutter until crumbly.
Sprinkle the streusel mixture over the top of the cake batter. Do not press it in, it should just sit on top of the batter.
Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out with a few moist crumbs. The top will be golden brown.
Allow this delicious blueberry coffee cake to cool for at least 10 minutes before serving. Serve warm or cool to room temperature and enjoy with a cup of coffee.
- Bisquick baking mix: You can substitute Bisquick baking mix with a homemade mix of all-purpose flour, baking powder, and salt in a 1:1:1 ratio. Alternatively, you can use any other brand of baking mix that you prefer.
- Milk: You can use any type of milk, such as almond milk, soy milk, or coconut milk. You can also use heavy cream for a richer cake.
- Sour cream: You can substitute sour cream with whole-milk Greek yogurt.
- Blueberries: You can use fresh or frozen blueberries. If using frozen, defrost the berries and pat them dry to avoid adding moisture to the cake batter.
- Salted butter: You can substitute salted butter with unsalted butter and add a pinch of salt to the streusel mixture.
- Mixing bowls: You will need a large bowl (or a medium bowl) and a small bowl.
- 8x8 baking dish: Ideally, the baking dish should be glass or ceramic. Using metal square pans instead of a ceramic dish may affect the baking time and the overall texture of the cake.
- Silicone spatula: Or a wooden spoon.
- Pastry blender: Optional
Leftover coffee cake? To store the leftover blueberry coffee cake, follow these steps:
It's always a good idea to allow the cake to cool completely to room temperature before storing it.
It is best to cut the cake into slices or squares and place them in an airtight container or a large food storage bag. Seal the container or bag tightly, making sure to remove as much air as possible to prevent moisture from building up. Alternatively, you can use plastic wrap over your baking dish.
Store the cake in the refrigerator for up to 3 to 4 days or in the freezer for up to 2 to 3 months. When you're ready to eat the cake, you can either thaw it in the refrigerator overnight or reheat it in the microwave or oven until warm.
Bisquick mix is a multi-purpose baking mix made with flour, shortening, salt, sugar, and baking powder. Since this recipe uses Bisquick, you can skip many of these ingredients, saving you time and clean up.
The fat content from sour cream makes the cake moist and rich.
