Blueberry Banana Coffee Cake with Pecan Crumble Topping! Sometimes life just doesn’t get much better… especially when it involves a delicious home baked good! Maybe I just love delicious things and they make everything seem amazing!

I told my kids I was making a coffee cake. You should have seen their noses crinkle up in disgust!  “MOM!  Why do you have to put coffee in it?”

How can my dear children not know what a coffee cake is? No, there’s no coffee in it! You eat it with your coffee!

Maybe I shouldn’t have told them. This coffee cake disappeared way too quickly – and we didn’t even have any coffee with the cake! Nope, we had it with a nice cold glass of milk!

I guess since it disappeared so quickly I’ll just have to make another. Maybe I’d better make two coffee cakes!

This coffee cake would be perfect for breakfast….not that I eat cake for breakfast, but this one would be really good. I think I could rationalize it since it has bananas, blueberries, an oatmeal topping and pecans! That says breakfast to me! And just think how this would be with that first cup coffee in the morning! Another coffee cake I like to make is Raspberry Almond Coffee Cake.

      Hi Helen,
      I’m so glad you loved the recipe as much as my family does! I have not tried doubling this recipe. You might want to cook it in two separate pans to ensure even cooking. šŸ™‚

    Oh, I have a serious weakness for coffee cake, Kathy! It’s probably top 3 on my list of favorite desserts/breakfasts. I’m digging the blueberries and bananas in this one, though. It’s kinda like banana bread turned into coffee cake…with an incredible crumble on top. Save me the last slice? Please? šŸ™‚

    Dear Kathy, What a beautiful coffee cake. And so funny about your kids and the coffee. I could totally see my kids saying the same thing. This pecan crumble topping is genius with the blueberries. I plan to make this soon! Have a great week Kathy! XO

    Hahahaha! Maybe you should have let them believe there IS coffee in here… I always did think “coffee cake” was a little strange of a name for such a delicious cake, with no coffee in it. I’m a huge sucker for any coffee cake and this one looks delicious! Love love love the pecan crumble topping and blueberries with banana is fantastic. I could eat this entire cake for breakfast. Guess it would be safer to have this around with a few children to help me polish it off. šŸ˜‰ Cheers, friend!
