Whether you need a brunch or potluck dish, this streusel topped Lemon Blueberry Coffee Cake is the perfect choice!


  • Preheat oven to 350°.
  • Spray a 10″ Springform pan with non-stick spray.

½ cup butter, melted
1 ½ cups AP flour
¾ cup packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon PURE vanilla

  • In a medium bowl, combine melted butter, flour, sugar and vanilla until crumbly. Set aside.

¼ cup melted butter
¼ cup canola oil
1 cup granulated sugar
2 LARGE eggs
1 teaspoon PURE vanilla
1 cup vanilla bean yogurt or sour cream
Juice of 1 LARGE lemon
2 tablespoons lemon zest
2 cups AP flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
2 cups fresh or frozen small wild blueberries (see note)

  • In a large bowl, whisk together butter, oil and sugar for 2-3 minutes.
  • Add the eggs, vanilla, yogurt, lemon juice and zest and whisk until combined.
  • Add flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt and stir just until combined.
  • Stir in blueberries and set aside.

FILLING optional
8 ounces cream cheese
¼ cup granulated sugar
1 LARGE egg
zest from one lemon

  • With an electric mixer, beat cream cheese, sugar, egg and lemon zest until smooth.

GLAZE optional
¾ cup powdered sugar
1 tablespoon lemon juice

  • Whisk together powdered sugar and lemon juice


  • Spread ½ of the cake batter into the bottom of the prepared pan.
  • Spread cream cheese filling in the center, staying away from the edge of the pan as much as possible.

  • Top with remaining cake batter and spread to cover as much of the cream cheese filling as possible.

  • Sprinkle the crumb topping over top.

  • Bake at 350 for 60-70 minutes, or until center is set and DOES NOT jiggle when moved. You don’t want an unbaked center! and it could take up to 80 minutes.
  • Let cake cool to room temperature before drizzling the glaze over top.
  • Serve.


  • Frozen blueberries will release more moisture as they bake, so you may want to reduce the oil to 2 tablespoons if using frozen berries.
  • Both the cheesecake filling and the glaze are optional – just depends on how much sweetness and decadence you want for the occasion.


It’s not often I use a package mix of anything, but my friend gave me this recipe to make for her dinner night at the Eagles and I followed it to the letter. I actually recommend you do the same thing. 😀 It has a airy tender crumb that is FULL of intense flavor. I’ve since changed it up a bit and also made it strawberry by using a strawberry cake mix and vanilla pudding. The possible combinations are based on your imagination with cake and instant pudding flavors 😀

I’ve also adapted it to a scratch version that uses freeze dried fruit to make it mango or raspberry using a white cake mix.

1 package lemon cake mix
1 small (3.4 ounce) package instant lemon pudding mix
2/3 cup lemon juice
1/2 cup neutral oil
1 teaspoon lemon zest
4 LARGE eggs

  • Preheat oven to 350°.
  • Generously butter (NOT non stick spray) a bundt pan.
  • In a large bowl whisk together the cake mix and pudding mix.
  • Add oil, lemon zest, lemon juice and eggs, whisking to combine well.
  • Pour into prepared pan.
  • Bake 35-40 minutes until a toothpick comes out clean.
  • Cool 15 minutes in pan.
  • Invert onto cooling rack to cool completely.

2 cups powdered sugar
1/4 cup lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon PURE vanilla extract

  • Whisk together the powdered sugar, lemon juice and vanilla.
  • Drizzle over cooled cake and let glaze harden 10 minutes or so before serving.
  • Transfer to serving platter and serve with FRESH blueberries or berry of choice 😀

NOTE: Flavors can be altered by using 1/4 cup freeze dried fruit with a white cake mix and vanilla flavored pudding mix.

  • You can heat each slice for a few seconds in the microwave and add a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream for a treat.


Hubby loves a “plain” cheesecake so I FINALLY created a recipe that satisfies us both! Vanilla bean for the cheesecake and flavored glazes for me. This one was for Christmas so it had a cranberry pomegranate glaze.

1 1/4 cups graham cracker crumbs**(see notes)
1/3 cup melted butter
1/4 cups sugar

  • Preheat oven to 350°.
  • Stir all together until well blended.

1 cup sugar
2 tablespoons butter, softened
1 vanilla beans, split and scraped for seeds
2 cups whipping cream
8 ounces white chocolate, chopped small

  • Add 2 packages of the cream cheese, sour cream, cornstarch and sugar to a large bowl and beat on low until well combined and sugar is dissolved.
  • Add butter and vanilla bean paste, mixing until smooth.
  • Pour over graham cracker crust.
  • Bake 40-45 minutes until top is light golden brown.
  • Turn off oven and let cheesecake sit for 30 minutes in the oven.
  • Remove from oven and cool COMPLETELY on a wire rack for 2 hours.

2 cups heavy whipping cream
8 ounces cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup powdered sugar

  • Crisp ginger snaps make a flavorful alternative to the graham cracker crumbs.
  • This is best made 1-2 days in advance.


For us, traditional pumpkin pie has become kind of boring and don’t even try and serve one of those from a big box store, they’re so boring and cardboard like. When I found this recipe I just knew this would become our new favorite! I embellished it a bit with changing up the rum to an apple rum we love. I’m also increasing the amount of raisins next time.


1/2-1 cup golden raisins**(see notes)
1/4 cup apple rum
1/4 cup boiling water
2 LARGE eggs
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 tablespoon AP flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon QUALITY cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon FRESH ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
15 ounce can pumpkin
8 ounces evaporated milk**(see notes)
Crust for a single crust pie – your choice, homemade or store bought

  • Preheat oven to 400°.
  • Roll dough into a 1/8 inch thick circle and transfer to a 9 inch pie plate. Trim crust to 1/2 inch beyond the plate rim and flute edge. Place raisins in a small bowl and cover with the rum and boiling water. Let them sit 5 minutes. **(see notes)
  • In a large mixing bowl combine the eggs, brown sugar, flour, salt and spices.
  • Stir in the pumpkin and raisin mixture.
  • Gradually blend in milk.
  • Pour into crust.
  • Bake 35-40 minutes until knife inserted in center comes out clean. **(see notes)
  • Cool on wire rack.
  • Refrigerate any leftovers if there are some.


  • I like to use golden raisins which are naturally plumper and juicier than regular raisins. When I use golden raisins I use all rum and let them sit for 10-15 minutes.
  • Use the rest of your evaporated milk in your Thanksgiving mashed potatoes.
  • Cover edges with foil last 15-20 minutes if edges are browning too quickly.


Homemade hummingbird cake is exceptionally moist and flavorful with layers and layers of banana pineapple spice cake and a super silky cream cheese frosting!


2 cups THINLY sliced pecans
1 cup of sweetened shredded coconut would be wonderful though!
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 1/2 teaspoons PURE ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon allspice
1/2 teaspoon FRESH ground nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups mashed bananas (4 large ripe bananas)
8 ounce can crushed pineapple, slightly drained. You want a little juice, but not all of it!
3 LARGE eggs, at room temperature
2/3 cup neutral oil or melted coconut oil)
1 cup packed brown sugar
3/4 cup FINELY ground granulated sugar
2 teaspoons PURE vanilla extract

  • Preheat the oven to 300°.
  • Spread pecans onto a lined baking sheet,toasting for 6-8 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven to cool.
  • Turn oven up to 350°.
  • Grease three 9-inch cake pans, line with parchment paper rounds, then grease the parchment paper. The parchment paper will help the cake release from the pan.
  • Whisk the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, allspice, nutmeg and salt together in a large bowl.

  • Whisk the rest of the cake ingredients in a medium bowl.
  • Pour wet ingredients into dry ingredients and whisk until completely combined. You’ll have 7 cups of batter.
  • Fold in 1 1/2 cups of the toasted pecans, saving the rest for garnish.
  • Spread batter evenly between the 3 prepared cake pans.
  • Bake for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  • Rotate pans halfway through baking.
  • Remove cakes from the oven and allow to cool completely in the pans set on a wire rack. Once completely cooled, remove cakes from pan and level the tops off so they are flat. If desired cut cakes in half to make 6 smaller layers.
  • Discard the tops or eat. 

16 ounces FULL FAT cream cheese, softened room temperature
3/4 cup (12 tablespoons) unsalted butter, softened to room temperature
5 cups powdered sugar
1 tablespoon WHOLE milk
2 teaspoons PURE vanilla extract
1/8 teaspoon salt, or more to taste

  • In a large bowl beat the cream cheese and butter together on high speed until smooth and creamy.
  • Add the powdered sugar, vanilla, milk, and salt, beating on low speed for 30 seconds, then switch to high speed and beat for 2 minutes. 
  • Taste and adjust salt if needed.


  • Place 1 cake layer on your cake turntable, cake stand or serving plate.
  • Evenly cover the top with frosting.
  • Top with 2nd layer and evenly cover the top with frosting.
  • Finish with the third cake or 4th, 5th and 6th layer(s) and spread the remaining frosting all over the top and sides.
  • Garnish with leftover toasted pecans.
  • Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes before slicing to prevent the cake from falling apart as you cut it.


  • TO MAKE AHEAD: Prepare cakes and frosting 1 day in advance. Keep cakes at room temperature, covered tightly. Refrigerate prepared frosting in an airtight container, then bring to room temperature when ready to use. 
  • FROZEN BANANAS: You can use thawed frozen bananas in this recipe, but thawed bananas are extra wet, so drain off as much of the excess liquid as you can before mashing.
  • CUPCAKES: This recipe will make 3 dozen cupcakes. Fill liners 2/3 full and bake 20-22 minutes or until cooked through.
  • BUNDT CAKE: This recipe makes a great bundt cake, but is too much batter for a 9×13 cake. Bake time will be longer for a bundt cake, 55-65 minutes. Use a toothpick to test for doneness. DO NOT OVER BAKE.

For years I made this simple and classic Bisquick coffee cake from the back of the box, but I doctored it up my way. So recently I went looking for Bisquick’s original recipe and was surprised to find MANY versions of it by several bakers. The only thing I found in common was the use of Bisquick and most people did what I’d been doing for many years ~ double the ooey gooey streusel!

2/3 cup Bisquick®
2/3 cup PACKED brown sugar
4 tablespoons butter, softened
1 tablespoon QUALITY ground cinnamon
1/3-1/2 cup golden raisins
1/3-1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional)

  • Combine the baking mix, brown sugar, cinnamon, and butter with a pastry blender or fork until crumbly.
  • Fold in nuts and raisins, if using. Set aside.

2 cups Bisquick®
2/3-3/4 cup WHOLE milk
3 tablespoons sugar
1 LARGE egg
1 teaspoon PURE vanilla extract

1 tablespoon QUALITY ground cinnamon

  • Preheat the oven to 375°.
  • Grease a DEEP 9-inch baking dish.
  • In a large bowl, combine baking mix, sugar, cinnamon, milk, and egg together, mixing well.
  • Pour the mixture into the greased baking dish.
  • Spread the topping evenly over the cake batter.
  • Use a knife to swirl the streusel topping into the cake.
  • Bake 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
  • Pour a cup of coffee and enjoy!


  • BISQUICK is the ONLY baking mix that works EXACTLY right in this recipe. Substitute other brnads at your own risk 😀
  • For really ooey and gooey streusel double the amounts.
  • When I’m feeling a bit naughty I soak the raisins in a spiced rum first. Be sure to drain them well before adding them to the streusel.

Here are the links to a few of the similar recipes I found.

MY BAKING ADDICTION’S  Yield 8-10 servings
This version of the same basic coffee cake gets its tang from sour cream and has a little twist using either pumpkin pie spice or apple pie spice instead of plain cinnamon PLUS a bit of a crunch from pecans though I prefer walnuts.

⅔ cup packed light brown sugar
1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
¼ cup unsalted butter, cold
½ cup chopped pecans (optional)

  • Stir in the pecans. Set aside.

2 cups Bisquick mix
2 tablespoons light brown sugar
½ teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
⅔ cup sour cream
¼ cup milk
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • Preheat oven to 375°F.
  • Spray a 9-inch round cake pan with cooking spray. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the remaining Bisquick, brown sugar, and pumpkin pie spice.
  • Stir in the sour cream, milk, egg, and vanilla until well combined.
  • Spread half of the cake batter into the bottom of the greased cake pan.

NO COFFEE and NO RAW EGGS makes this rich, creamy, tangy, tart yet sweet dessert the PERFECT cake for your next Sunday dinner. But beware, the flavor is best when the cake has set for a day or so ahead. And the best feature – it’s a NO BAKE recipe. Also BEWARE that the alcohol is NOT baked off in this recipe.

I made them in these cute little parfait style cups for an Eagles function last week and they were a HUGE hit!

LEMON TIRAMISU serves 10-12
1 1/4 cups heavy whipping cream
1 pound marscapone (see notes)
⅓ cup extra fine sugar
2 teaspoons PURE vanilla extract
Zest of 1 lemon
28 ladyfingers (see notes)
½ cup Limoncello
1 cup lemon curd
Lemon curd (recipe below)
Candied lemon slices, garnish
They are super EASY to make! (recipe below)

  • In a medium bowl, beat the cream with a hand mixer to soft peak stage. Set aside.
  • In a separate bowl, beat the mascarpone, sugar and vanilla together until it thickens up and it also reaches a soft peak stage.
  • Fold in the lemon zest with a spatula.
  • Fold ⅓ of the whipped cream into the mascarpone mixture GENTLY so as not to knock out the air out.
  • Fold another ⅓ of the whipped cream into the mascarpone mixture GENTLY so as not to knock out the air out.
  • Fold the remaining ⅓ of the whipped cream into the mascarpone mixture GENTLY until all incorporated.
  • Quickly dip each cookie into the liqueur (DO NOT SOAK) and lay them side by side in a 9 inch square baking dish, pressing down lightly to make them all level and trim some if necessary.
  • Top the cookies with half the mascarpone cream mixture, spreading it evenly with an offset spatula.
  • Then spread ½ the lemon curd over the cream.
Add another layer of dipped cookies, then spread the remaining curd over the top.
  • Pipe or spread the remaining mascarpone mixture over the top of the curd.
  • Refrigerate AT LEAST 6 hours or PREFERABLY overnight before serving.
  • For nice neat slices, place in the freezer for 45-60 minutes before slicing. Make sure it’s not too firm inside when you serve though as this should be a nice soft set dessert.
  • Right before serving, add some candied lemon slices or zest to garnish.


  • You can substitute cream cheese for the marscapone, BUT please realize this will slightly affect your flavor. Marscapone is made with cream where as cream cheese is made with milk.
  • The number of ladyfingers required will depend on their size. Here in our small town they are difficult to find. Check for them on the cookie aisle. Sometimes they locate them on the international aisle. You can make your own ladyfingers or even substitute sponge cake, cut into fingers. Dry them uncovered overnight on a wire rack.

An older gentleman from the Eagles was having a BIG birthday (85) and is of that age where he says if he can’t eat it, he doesn’t want it for gifts. I asked him what his favorite cake was and he said cherry cake like his mom and wife used to make. Well, I didn’t have a cherry cake recipe in my bag of tricks so I set out to try and replicate what he described. Let’s just say he was VERY HAPPY with this 😀

The day I made this also coincided with my cousin’s birthday. She passed away in 1998, but every year since, her sister and I have baked her a cake in tribute. We then share the pictures with each other from afar. So, this cake was also for Michelle this year!


3 LARGE eggs
1 cup sugar
3/4 cup avocado oil
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
3 teaspoons baking powder
1 1/2 teaspoon PURE vanilla
1 pinch sea salt
1 can COMSTOCK cherry pie filling
1 tablespoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon QUALITY ground cinnamon

Preheat oven to 350°. 

  • Add eggs, sugar, oil, flour, baking powder, vanilla and salt to a large mixing bowl. Mix with hand beater 2 minutes until well blended.
  • Spread 2/3 of the batter into a greased 13×9-inch baking pan. 

  • Spread cherry pie filling on top of batter.
  • Drop the remaining batter by spoonfuls on top of the pie filling layer. 

  • Stir together the sugar and the cinnamon.
  • Sprinkle over top of cake.
  • Bake for 35-40 minutes until cooked through and a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean.
  • Lightly glaze if desired.
 I used a cream cheese glaze.
  • Serve warm or cooled.
