Blueberry Cake Eggless

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! ;-)

    Thanks a million for sharing this recipe, DK! No blueberries on hand, so I made it with chopped apples yesterday. Yum! Only had one problem, I think I used a cake pan that was slightly too small because my cake came out very tall, but by the time it was cooked through in the middle, it was just a tad burnt around the edges. Next time I’ll try a roomier pan. Anyways thanks again! This is a keeper.

  2. This looks very good. I’m allergic to eggs and am very anxious to try this–it sounds delicious. Can this be baked in a square or rectangular pan?

    Can I replace the sour cream for non dairy food.
    Soy , egg, nuts, lentils are not the option either
    As my daughter is allergic to them all :(
    Please let me know if I could bake this?
    Also if you have any cake recipe W/o all the above
    Ingredients plz let me know. Thanks :)

    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

  4. I would love to know the nutritional breakdown; such as how much fat per serving.

    Thanks so much!
