Blueberry Coffee Cake--Positively delicious!, Member ronnielj

Tried this recipe this morning--was moist & tender with lots of flavor! I only had/used one egg. And I used 1/2 cup of milk and 1/2 cup of buttermilk. The cake baked in exactly 35 minutes. I cooled for 10-15 minutes before cutting...didn't pose a problem. My husband loved it! Comment: When I put the first layer of batter into my baking dish, it seemed like it wasn't enough...same thing when I did the second layer. Low and behold, it was just perfect! So have no worries if you encounter the same situation. Side note: When making sweet treats and the recipe calls for greasing the baking dish, I use butter sprinkled with sugar. I put about 1/8 cup of sugar into the buttered dish, then swish it around until sides and bottom surfaces are covered. Adds a little something extra!
