Award winning Blueberry Coffee Cake

Its that time of year again, blueberry season! Wondering what to do with all those blueberries you’re buying up at the store? Well I’ve got the answer: blueberry cake. Yummy, Yummy. My boyfriend, Gary, has had this recipe a long time. Its an award winning recipes from a Pillsbury Bake-off from back in the 19080’s. We whipped one up last night and it is absolutely amazing. (see pic, as a quarter of it is gone!) Now, don’t let me confuse you, this is not a “healthy” recipe by any means. But once in a white, you just gotta go for it.
