This delicious blueberry coffee cake is super easy to make in a cast iron skillet, is delicious and fruity plus is dairy-free and gluten-free. It is not too sweet and is perfect for breakfast or dessert.
I use my pour over coffee maker in the afternoon or evening for the unbelievable taste. When brewing the same coffee, it tastes twice as good as my machine and this would pair perfectly with my blueberry coffee cake recipe.
Every once in awhile I make something that I just don’t want to share with anyone else because it is so delicious. I always do end up sharing, but my piece is always bigger. Because I made it, and I’m the one holding the knife. So they don’t argue. Although I’m pretty sure they sneak a piece when I’m not looking because I certainly didn’t eat half of this Blueberry Coffee Cake all by myself.
And if I had, I wouldn’t admit it anyway. So, you’ll never know.
One of the things that makes this breakfast cake / coffee cake so delicious is that it is dairy free and gluten-free and uses Dairy-Free Yogurt Alternative (DFYA) for sweetness and moisture instead of milk. Silk Dairy-Free Yogurt Alternative is smooth and creamy and contains 6 grams of plant-based protein. It is cholesterol-free, comes in 6 flavors and is vegetarian too! It’s also delicious and works great for dairy-free baking.
My recipe for a Blueberry Coffee Cake can me made with ANY Dairy-Free flavor. I used strawberry because my store was out of vanilla, but whatever flavor you think compliments blueberries will work just fine.
You will need 2 containers (5.3 oz) or you can buy the new 24 oz size (vanilla or plain) and have enough for 2 cakes. Sounds like a win-win to me! It was fun to make it in a skillet too. I used a 10″ cast iron skillet and for some reason it makes it look even more delicious in the skillet.
The Silk Dairy-Free makes the cake moist inside and slightly sweet, perfect for breakfast, brunch or even dessert. Or lunch. Or midnight snack. I’m not particular… Plus I love that Silk Dairy-Free is non-GMO Project Verified which is very important to me and my family. You will find Silk Dairy-Free in the yogurt aisle.
This cake is perfect for those who can’t have dairy due to allergies, intolerance or other issues, and since it’s gluten-free, it’s a great option for many restricted diets.
This cake is really good. Just the right amount of sweetness to compliment the yummy blueberries with a nice texture and yummy taste. My kids are fans too, which is great because I can blame them for the missing pieces.
This blueberry recipe is delicious, super easy, and I just love using my cast iron skillet.
