In case you missed it, HAPPY SPRING! March 19th came and went and I didn’t bat an eye. Of course, I was stuck in my house all day, but what can you do? So in case you missed it too, here’s your PSA that it’s officially SPRING!

And do you know what Spring means? Warmer weather, greener grasses, and most importantly, all those fresh spring flavors!

If you’re like me and looking for something to treat yourself and your family to while you’re stuck inside, how about bringing the outside in with all the delicious flavors that spring has to offer? I’m talking Orange Marmalade French Toast Bakes, Blueberry Coffee Cake, and homemade pancakes!

Plus, it’s made in a square 8 x 8 pan, making it the perfect size to serve to you and your fam with a few leftover pieces for the next day (or a snack three hours later hehe). I promise – you, your kiddos and significant others will love this just as much as I do! So much so you might even make it for breakfast multiple times…

Why Make Blueberry Crumb Cake with preserves?

A lot of blueberry coffee cake recipes are made with fresh blueberries, but we prefer to make ours with Bonne Maman Wild Blueberry Preserves. If you’ve never had Bonne Maman, you’re missing out. I’ve been a fan of them since I was old enough to recognize their distinct picnic blanket-stamped lids at the grocery store. I absolutely love that each jar tastes like it came from a local market, and that I can use them on just about everything. And if that isn’t enough, here are few more reasons why we loves these wild blueberry preserves:

  • No high fructose corn syrup
  • No artificial colors
  • No preservatives
  • NON- GMO
  • Made with fresh, premium, simple ingredients

In other words, these Wild Blueberry Preserves might as well be homemade from your Grandmother’s cupboard.

The best part? There are whole blueberries in these preserves, meaning you still get that beautiful blueberry texture in your crumb cake without having to make a trip to the store. This way you can experience all those yummy fresh Spring flavors straight from your cupboard!

Tips for Making Blueberry Coffee Cake

  • Use high quality ingredients: In simple recipes like this, each ingredient will really make a difference. Now is the time to get the good butter and the Bonne Maman preserves 🙂
  • Use room room temperature: Make sure your butter and eggs are at room temperature! This will ensure that everything incorporates together in your batter and prevent any splitting.
  • Don’t overmix the batter: Over mixing will cause more gluten to develop! Only mix the batter until it’s just mixed so keep your crumb tender and soft!

How to Store Blueberry Crumb Cake

If you’re doing a lot of baking with not enough stomach space to eat it (SAME), you might be trying to freeze some baked goods for a later date. Luckily this blueberry crumb cake freezes incredibly well! Simply wrap your leftover tightly in plastic wrap and then place in a freezer safe plastic bag. Freeze for up to three months and defrost in the fridge overnight for when you’re ready to eat!

  6. Combine all ingredients for the crumb topping in a large bowl. Use a fork or pastry cutter to cut the mixture together. It should resemble wet sand. Sprinkle the crumble over the batter. Bake for 40 to 50 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out mostly clean.

  1. Great recipe. I added a little extra sugar to the crumble the second time and sprinkled with powdered sugar. 2 for 2 on your recipes so far. The Chocolate Chip Potato Chip Cookies are fantastic.

  2. Love this recipe! Do you have a recipe for the the glaze that’s drizzled on top? Thank you!

  3. Fabulous! I made this today. The only issue i had was the preserves sank to the bottom. I did add some fresh raspberries and strawberries but see someone else has this issue too. I will make this again, it’s absolutely delish.

    • Hi Kerry! So happy you enjoyed this coffee cake. Your preserves might have been heavier than ours which can sometimes cause them to sink. It’s also possible that you didnt divide your batter quite evenly and had less on the bottom than the top! Either way, you can mix the preserves with 1 Tablespoon of flour to keep them from dropping too much !

  4. Hi there!!! I am so excited to make this recipe. I have a question, is it OK to use salted butter instead of unsalted butter? Thank you so much!
