Foodie Friday: Sorta Healthy and Really Delicious Berry Coffee Cake

When we're not sewing, Rachel and I love to cook. We love to pour over cookbooks and peruse the internet looking for interesting recipes. Forget browsing the latest gossip magazine, we would rather settle down with an issue of Bon Appetit! We figure we're not the only ones who like a good recipe, so each Friday we will be posting a new recipe we have tried. So without further ado, I present to you our first recipe: Berry Coffee Cake! I have actually been making this recipe for a few years and tweaking it here and there. It is really delicious and healthier than your average coffee cake.

Berry Coffee Cake
(adapted from Simply In Season)

2 C. whole wheat flour
1 C. unbleached white flour
1 C. brown sugar
2 TBS. baking powder
2 tsp. cinnamon (optional)
1 tsp. salt
2 eggs
1 C. milk
1/2 C. melted butter or coconut oil
2-3 C. fresh or frozen berries*

In a large bowl, mix dry ingredients. In a separate bowl, whisk together eggs, milk and oil. Pour into flour mix and stir well. Gently fold in the berries. Spread into a greased 9 by 13 pan. Prepare topping.


2/3 C.brown sugar
2/3 C. rolled oats
1/3 C. flour
4-5 TBS. butter, melted
2 tsp. cinnamon (optional)

Mix ingredients together into coarse crumbs. Sprinkle over batter and bake at 375 degrees for 40-50 minutes til toothpick comes out clean. 

(*last night I made it with blueberries, blackberries, raspberries and chopped peaches and it was heavenly!)
