Grandma's Blueberry Coffee Cake

Pin It This is one of those recipes that reminds me of my childhood.  It reminds me of waking up at my grandma's house to the smell of freshly baked breakfast.  This is a classic, dense coffee cake with plump, juicy blueberries and a delicious streusel topping, drizzled with vanilla glaze.  Breakfast perfection!
You could substitue any type of berries, cherries, fruit that you like.
