There are some recipes, which work so well under your finger's supervision, play along with you as you cook, behave exactly how you dream that it should and come out looking like a winner! They are simply perfect for all occasions - be it a birthday party, a potluck or for that cozy tea with your loved one. Less time in kitchen but the result makes you look like a superwoman - who just managed to finish office work, tidy up home, make something looking shop bought yet look looking fresh and all reared up to go!
Among such recipes is this Blueberry Coffee Cake! The prep time is a laugh and the taste worthy of hours of effort. I have adapted this recipe from TasteofHome magazine where I have made it eggless. Its a total keeper with a wonderful crust yet soft as you nibble through it. Tastes perfect for evening tea - though coffeecake nevertheless! ;-)
The cake came out just perfect, i replaced the sour cream with equal amount of cream cheese and 1/4 cup of yogurt and the cake came out just perfect.....
I made this cake yesterday for the Diwali potluck party and it was an instant hit, though there were other contenders like Rasgulla, Double Ka Meetha etc. Perfect amount of sweetness - from both sugar and blueberries, lovely flavor from cinnamon topping. In short, everything about this cake is just Perfect. Thanks babes for such a keeper recipe!

mm..would something like avocado appeal to you? I am not sure how it would in this recipe but it can be used as a sour cream sub. Pls refer this : http://www.californiaavocadosdirect.com/13/use-avocado-as-a-healthy-butter-substitute.aspx. Hope this gives you an idea to take things forward --DK
I havent used canned blueberries but I think you can use one on one substitute after draining the canned blueberries.

I have updated the Ingredients section with the links for making it easier using m/w
The term "coffeecake" or "Tea Bread" is usually used in connotation to "any cake or sweet bread usually served with coffee/Tea" and does not necc. always mean that it contains Coffee or tea :)
This is an Eggless recipe as its suggested in the title. If you want to use eggs - use 2 eggs slightly beaten instead of applesauce --DK
Hey Hema, thank you so much for your words. I have one Eggless Vanilla cake coming up at Chef In you. Will surely try to post a fruit cake too. Are you looking for an eggless Fruit cake too? --DK
One of the most difficult substitutions in baking is for Baking soda. There is no exact substitution like many others and you would have to adjust other ingredients in the recipe..I have given 3 substitutions in my Baking Substitutes 101 post with one being ideal - chk it out. Hope that helps :) --DK
