Flo's Cakes - Blueberry Almond Coffee Cake

One thing I love about coffee cakes is that they look special and fancy without the headache of frosting. I always struggle to make a frosted cake look nice so this is a huge advantage to me! This is a recipe from Flo that I've already made three times!

 This recipe is one my mom often made, and now my children like this coffee cake, too.
1 ½ cups flour
¾ cup sugar
2 tsp baking powder
½ tsp ground nutmeg
¼ tsp salt
2/3 cup milk
¼ cup butter, melted
1 egg, beaten
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups blueberries

Topping:
¾ cup sugar
½ cup flour
¼ cup butter
½ cup sliced almonds

In a mixing bowl, combine the first five ingredients. Add milk, butter, egg, and vanilla, mixing until well blended. Pour into greased 9x13 pan. Sprinkle with blueberries. Combine sugar, flour, and butter; sprinkle over blueberries. Top with sliced almonds. Bake at 350˚ for 40 minutes or until lightly browned.

This is a children’s story about the time her husband took their oldest son (then four-years-old) to the woods for his first hunting trip.  Email Flo at foxden @emypeople.net.
