Are you a morning person? Do you rise and shine and jump out of bed?

I’m not that cheery, sunny person in the mornings. Nope. Definitely not. Takes a few cups of coffee and a hot shower to even wake me up. And even then it’s usually lunch time when I start thinking about eating. I know. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, blah blah blah.

The only time I find myself eating breakfast is if I have some sort of pastry (yes, donut, hehe) with my coffee.

Or a big slice of coffee cake. Or a piece of sweet bread.

Carbaholic much? I totally admit my weakness. For some it’s cheese. Others have chocolate cravings. For me….

It’s pastries.

Today’s recipe is totally easy. And it makes TWO cakes. Which is perfect, because you can stick one in the freezer to serve later. Or share it with a friend who needs cheering up!

I used my favorite Cinnamon Coffee Cake with cream cheese as my base for this recipe. But I added in blueberries and almonds (because blueberry and almond go together perfectly). I also added almond extract to the cake. The aroma of this cake in the oven is so divine.

To freeze the second cake, allow it to cool completely. Once cooled, wrap in aluminum foil and slide into a gallon sized ziploc freezer bag. Label and freeze for later use. Thaw in fridge overnight to serve! ENJOY.

  • 3 large eggs

  • ¼ tsp kosher salt
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, melted

  1. I have followed this recipe step by step.  But, you did not say how to remove the cake from the pan with the streusel topping.  On my first attempt, the topping started to fall all over so I stopped.  However, you did say to remove the cake from the pan to allow it to cool completely.
