Tiny's Streusel, Sour Cream Blueberry Coffee Cake Recipe

Tiny's blueberry coffee cake recipe.  Sour cream makes the sponge moist and delicious. A brown sugar streusel tops it off just right.

We used frozen blueberries to make the cake in the photographs.  This might be why they all sunk to the bottom of the cake--all that extra water. 

This did not bother us. 

If you want the fruit to remain suspended inside the cake batter, try using fresh blueberries instead.
