Blueberry Brunch Cake

Fresh blueberries, sweet cream butter, and rich Greek yogurt make this a coffee cake that works for breakfast, brunch, or as a midnight treat.  Every part of this cake is delicious--the crust, the baked batter, the berries, and the ribbons of brown sugar and cinnamon!  

If you need a fail-safe dessert, a celebratory treat to share, or something to make for a friend who deserves more sweetness in his/her life, this is it!  My husband and kids are in love with it, and I ate mine slowly to savor each bite. 

Blueberry Brunch Cake

1 cup (2 sticks) salted butter, softened
1 1/4 cup sugar
1 egg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups flour (whole wheat works)

3/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup plain Greek yogurt (full-fat preferred)
1 3/4 cups fresh blueberries (frozen work)
1 cup brown sugar
2 teaspoons cinnamon

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray 2 large loaf pans with cooking spray.
2. In a medium/large mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar. Add egg and vanilla and beat until smooth. 
3. In a separate bowl, whisk together flour, salt, baking powder and soda, Alternate adding flour mixture and Greek yogurt to creamed mixture.  Fold in blueberries.
