Friends, I made this Blueberry Yogurt Morning Cake for my girlfriends over the weekend. If you love raspberries, you may enjoy Easy-Stir Banana Raspberry Bread or Raspberry Yogurt Cake!

What’s the best coffee cake recipe?

This is my all-time favorite coffee recipe, because you can make it ahead, and it’s just as good as hot out of the oven. It’s so moist … soooo moist.

We enjoyed breakfast in bed, watching the Royal Wedding (that went on for hours and hours). So fun, and of course the pups joined us in the celebration. Doesn’t everyone want to watch the Royal Wedding with a Whoodle puppy? :)

Breakfast in Bed - Blueberry Yogurt Morning Cake

Luckily we were on the water the day before, kayaking and enjoying the central Oregon sunshine. There’s nothing like being on the water, and falling into bed at night.

The Royal Wedding

I loved everything about Harry and Meghan’s wedding. Not only the simple, elegant, understated dress, but the fact that when she and Harry looked at each other, your heart just melted. They looked happy and comfortable with each other. It felt real and authentic. The message of love ran deep throughout the whole service, and we talked about it for hours.

What if this wedding sparked a new kind of love in the way we all treat one another, our commitments to relationships, and how we keep and nurture our wedding vows? This wedding could be momentous for relationships everywhere! (No pressure, Harry & Meghan!) :)

In the meantime, I am so happy summer is here, and along with that comes fresh blueberry season.

While we were cozied up in bed, I brought these lovely plates of eggs, fruit and this Blueberry Yogurt Morning Cake.

So good. I made scrambled eggs (my secret is to blend them in the Vitamix with water before cooking – nice and fluffy!) and served this breakfast cake with eggs and fruit.

YUMMY Blueberry Yogurt Morning Cake

The breakfast dessert is so moist, and my girlfriends raved about it. Of course I love anything baked with almond extract. There’s just something comforting to me about that flavor.

How to make breakfast cake

  1. Wash the blueberries and toss with a tiny bit of sugar.
  2. Make the batter, placing the sugared blueberries on top.
  3. Don’t worry, the blueberries will sink down into the cake as you bake it.

Nice and moist, ooey and gooey in the middle. Just the way I like it :)

Recipe from Savor, Living Abundantly Where You Are, As You Are, by Shauna Niequist
Prep Time: 15 mins
Cook Time: 50 mins
Total Time: 1 hr 5 mins
Yield: 10 -12


  • 1/2 cup butter softened, plus more for the pan
  • 1 cup sugar, plus 2 tablespoons for the berries
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cup plain yogurt
  • 1 tsp. almond extract
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 2 cups of fresh blueberries, washed and drained


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter a 10-inch springform pan, and line it with parchment paper (I spray the parchment paper with cooking spray).
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine butter, sugar, eggs, yogurt, and almond extract. Mix well.
  • Add flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda, and with a wooden spoon, mix by hand until combined. Be careful to not overmix.
  • Pour the batter into the springform. Toss the berries with the two tablespoons sugar, and then spread them over the batter.
  • Bake for 50 minutes to 1 hour, or until a toothpick comes out clean when inserted in the center.
  • Let the cake cool for 10 minutes and then transfer to a cake plate or stand.
  • If not serving the cake that day, after cooling, cover the springform pan (to not dry out). Do not remove from the pan until right before serving. Delicoius to serve warm, or the next day!
