The blueberry kick continues with this mini lemon blueberry coffee cake recipe. I love mini treats since they help me satisfy a sweet craving without killing the calorie count for the day. Coffee cake is a favorite for Sunday brunch and girlfriend get togethers.
The combination of lemon and blueberries always makes me think of spring. Enjoying one of these in the depth of winter makes the cold and snow seem not quite so bad. Enjoy these mini coffee cakes with a hot cup of coffee or tea.
Fresh blueberries are usually available year round at the local grocery store. However, if you don’t have fresh blueberries you can substitute frozen. Zesting up part of a lemon and, if you want extra lemon flavor, adding a bit of fresh lemon juice takes these lemon blueberry coffee cakes over the top.
Store these bite sized treats in an air tight container and eat within 4 days.
