Triple Berry Coffee Cake
Ingredients
Cake
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 cups triple berry mixture - any berries in season will work. Jules uses blackberries, marionberries, and blueberries.
Topping
  • 1/4 cup cold butter
  • 1/4 cup oats
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon allspice
Instructions
Cake
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees (F).

  2. Cream butter and sugar together in a mixing bowl. Add egg and buttermilk.

  3. Slowly incorporate flour, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon.

  4. Once mixture is smooth, fold in berries, careful not to damage the berries.

  5. Pour into a greased 8 x 8-inch pan.

Topping
  1. In a separate bowl, fork together butter, oats, brown sugar, and spices.

  2. Crumble over the top of the batter and bake for 30 - 45 minutes, depending on the juiciness of the berries. A toothpick inserted into the center of the cake should come out mostly clean. A few moist crumbs clinging to it is okay.
