Are you looking for a delicious breakfast or dessert? Then you don’t want to miss this Crock Pot Blueberry Coffee Cake from Gooseberry Patch’s Slow-Cooker Fall Favorites. Oh. My. Yum!
Aunt Lou here.
Sooooo…let me tell you a little story.
I knew that I wanted to try out my Pampered Chef loaf pan for this one. I have some pretty big crock pots, so I was SO confident that the loaf pan would fit in any one of my big ol’ oval crock pots that I didn’t check. (Don’t do that…check first people!)
Then I noticed that this coffee cake didn’t have a topping. Weird. It just ain’t coffee cake to me without the topping. However, I am severely challenged when it comes to cutting butter into ANY-THING…while my handy-dandy pastry cutter makes it a lot easier, sometimes I like to try new things. 🙂 So I melted some butter, mixed in some brown sugar and plopped some all over the top of my cake. THEN ladies and gentlemen, I tried to put my loaf pan in my crock pot. And low-and-behold, it didn’t fit!
So THEN I had to pour my batter into a different pan (which I checked to make sure it fit before I poured the batter into it!). As you can imagine, my pretty little topping didn’t stay on top. I wasn’t about to scrap the whole thing, so I took a knife and made it a Crock Pot Blueberry Coffee Cake with a brown sugar swirl! 😉

Now if you are wanting to cut back on your sugar intake, you can leave out the swirl and the topping or one of the other. I am positive it will be scrumdiddlyumptious any of those ways. I just was not going to scrap a perfectly fine cake because I wasn’t thinking and didn’t figure out my pan wouldn’t fit until it was too late. 😉
However, if you decide to have the swirl and topping, be prepared for some ooey gooey yumminess. There will be a lot of buttery deliciousness in the bottom, but just make sure your cake is done all the way through and you are good to go!
