This is another of Mel’s recipes! :) Yesterday I bought some fresh berries so this morning Gabe (my 2 yr old) and I made this delicious coffeecake with them. Yum yum!! Don’t you love berry season?! The original recipe has shortening instead of butter but I substituted butter and it worked out perfect – so you get to choose!
Triple Berry Coffeecake
submitted by Brittany
2 cups flour
2 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup butter
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup milk
2 cups fresh or frozen berries**
1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 cup butter
1. Grease 9x9x2 inch or 8x8x2 inch baking pan; set aside. In a medium bowl combine the 2 cups flour, baking powder, and salt; set aside.
2. In a medium bowl beat butter on medium speed for 30 seconds. Add the 3/4 cup sugar and beat on med-high until light and fluffy. Add egg, beat well. Add flour mixture and milk alternately to beaten egg mixture, beating until smooth after each addition.
3. Spoon batter into prepared pan. Sprinkle with berries. In another bowl combine the 1/2 cup flour, the 1/2 cup sugar, and cinnamon. Using a pastry blender, cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs; sprinkle over berries. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 50-60 minutes. Serve warm. Makes 9 servings.
**Raspberries, blueberries and strawberries. The triple berry mix at Costco is great when you don’t have fresh berries. (The mix is blueberries, raspberries and marionberries)
I had to add the picture of Gabe eyeing the goods while I was taking a picture of it… I wondered how he got so tall all of a sudden…!
