Every year we go Blueberry picking at a local blueberry farm.  This year we went on a weekday before school and it was perfect.  The weather was not hot yet and the trees were full of blueberries.  We spent 1 hour and got 16 cups of blueberries and some beautiful tomatoes.  I was looking for a new recipe for the blueberries, when I came across Paula Deen’s Blueberry Coffee Cake. I took the ingredients with us on vacation and made it for breakfast one morning.  You can watch Paula make it here. Here is the recipe:


Paula Deen’s Blueberry Coffee Cake


  • 1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 (12-ounce) can buttermilk biscuits
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, melted
  • 1 cup quick-cooking rolled oats
  • 1 1/2 cups fresh or frozen blueberries
  • 1/2 cup sugar

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

Generously grease a 9-inch square baking dish. In a small bowl, combine brown sugar and cinnamon and mix well with a fork. Separate biscuit dough into 10 biscuits. Cut each biscuit into quarters, and dip each piece in melted butter and coat with brown sugar mixture. Arrange in a single layer in baking dish. Sprinkle with 1/2 cup of the oats.

Combine blueberries and sugar in a bowl and toss to coat. Spoon over oats and biscuits and sprinkle with remaining 1/2 cup oats. Drizzle remaining melted butter on top. Bake for 20 minutes or until cake is golden brown and center is done. Cool for 20 minutes. Serve warm.


This was a picture before I put it in the oven.

I double the recipe and made it in a 9×13 pan.  This made it difficult to cook evenly.  The inside needed more time while the outside got a little crispy.  But everyone really enjoyed it and I’ll be making it for hubby on Father’s Day!  Oh, might I recommend some cool whip on top, yummy!

I have a habit of being so excited to dish out the food, that I forget to take a picture after it’s done.  So here is one with my phone, after we’d already dug in.  Sorry it’s not better.  The dish was cleaned out!

Here is a Publix coupon for $1.50 off a package of blueberries, raspberries or blackberries. Blueberries are $1.50 for 1 pint this week.  That means FREE blueberries.  Do you have a favorite recipe?  I’d love to hear it.
