I’ve died and gone to muffin heaven! This EASY Blueberry Muffin Cake is like a giant, moist blueberry muffin, complete with Brown Sugar Streusel and Maple Cream Cheese Glaze – perfect for Father’s Day!
Happy Almost Father’s Day! I thought there would be no better way to say good morning this Father’s Day than diving mouth first into a giant Blueberry Muffin!
I am actually speaking in church this Father’s Day and am in the middle of preparing my talk (you can read it HERE), so I’ve been thinking about my dad an extra lot. In fact, as I was lying awake one night thinking about what to say, I started making notes on my phone of things I’ve learned from my dad – soon I had over 50 of his favorite phrases, scriptures and memories and what I realized was my dad is so much a part of who I am – or at least who I want to be. From my faith, to my work ethic, to my perspective, I am my father’s daughter and feel so blessed to be mentored by such a Christ-like, family centered man.
One of my favorite memories of my dad is how he would take turns taking us kids on business trips with him. I don’t know how many other high powered CEOs were used to children playing Barbies or Star Wars under their New York high rise conference tables during meetings, but my dad introduced them to it. And upon every single hospitalization of mine through the years – over 20, my dad has always been right by my side with his scriptures, and a bulging briefcase of Reader’s Digests and Bits and Pieces to share. We have had so many meaningful talks about life with me looking at him from my hospital bed. Even when his business was struggling during my lung transplant, he was right by my side. Because, families are forever.
And on a a less sappy yet equally sincere note – so is the deliciousness of this Blueberry Muffin Cake.
This cake looks super fancy but is super easy because – shhhhhh – it starts with a cake mix! We just put our house on the market so I never know when I will receive a text that someone will be at my house in 15 minutes – so I am doing a lot of simplifying – starting with cake mixes! To make this easy cake, simply toss your blueberries in some of the cake mix (so they don’t sink when baked) and mix your cake mix with vanilla yogurt (makes the cake sooooo moist), vegetable oil, water, eggs and cinnamon. Then you can either mix in all your blueberries into the mix if you don’t want a blueberry swirl down the center of your cake – but if you do – then its as easy as reserving some blueberries and sandwiching them in between your blueberry batter layers.
Finally, top your Blueberry Muffin Cake with your delectable Brown Sugar Steuesel because a crumbly, sugary, pecan, cinnamon infused Streusel transforms a blueberry muffin from good to AH-mazing, then drizzle with luscious, Maple Cream Cheese Glaze.
