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!


  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup non-fat milk
  • 1/2 cup yogurt, non-fat vanilla
  • 3 tablespoon canola oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoon lemon peel (grated, yellow only)
  • 2 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cup fresh (or frozen unsweetened) blueberries
  • Topping Ingredients:
  • 3 tablespoon sugar
  • 1/8 cup walnuts (coarsely chopped)


1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Position rack in the center of the oven.

2. In a large bowl whisk together the egg, milk, yogurt, oil and lemon peel.

3. Sift the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt onto the liquid ingredients. Using a fork, stir very lightly, just until ingredients are combined.

4. Gently fold in the blueberries. Pour the batter into an 8- or 9-inch baking pan coated with nonstick spray.

5. In a small bowl combine the topping ingredients. Sprinkle evenly over the cake batter.

6. Bake a 400 degrees for 30 to 35 minutes or until the top is lightly browned and a wooden toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

7. Allow the cake to cool in the baking pan on a wire rack for at least 10 minutes.

8. Serve warm or at room temperature.


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