Blueberry Coffee Cake With Streusel Topping

Print  Friendly and PDF
This is yet another recipe I have tried from DK's Chef In You. I made this egg-less cake for "Navrathiri Nights" get together at a friend's place and everyone gave me a double thumbs-up for this moist dense cake. The original recipe called for Sour Cream but substituted with thick Yogurt. And, I made my own Streusel topping for the cake. I only had a bite, so I will take my friend's word that everyone at the get together enjoyed it very much.
