This is a pretty good coffee cake recipe. Made this w/ my nieces Sat. morning. When my sister & her family come to town (usually a few times a yr.), my 2 nieces stay w/ me 1 night. We try to make breakfast if we have time (and I can get them out of bed b4 noon - lol!). While I think this is good, it needs a bit of tweaking to make it great IMHO. First, as many reviewers warned, there is WAAAY too much streusel topping. I suggest quartering the amt. (I still think 1/2 would be overkill...). And, as many others did, we used a 9 in. springform pan greased w/ Crisco baking spray (i.e. the kind w/ flour in it). We also folded fresh blueberries (1 1/2 c.) into our batter rather than making a layer of them & used 1 1/2 c. flour / 3/4 c. milk. We layered 1/2 of the batter, followed by 1/2 of the streusel mix., the rest of the batter & the remaining topping. I think the batter could use some fresh lemon zest (it complements blueberry quick breads nicely) and I will be sure to add it if I make this again. I was surprised that my cake didn't rise like DetectiveL's did (her pic looks so nice... and yummy!)... oh well :) I am anxious to try To Die For Blueberry Muffins by Colleen b4 giving this another go. My bf did mention that both girls really liked this (I was taking a shower while they ate it), so it wasn't THAT bad, I guess.... Thx. for sharing!
