Blueberry Coffee Cake

There is a great cookbook that recently came out that you must get! It's called Vegan with a Vengeance by Isa Chandra Moskowitz. I read the book cover to cover and decided to ask her if I could bake one of her recipes here on the Vegan Cooking Show. She gladly said yes! This Blueberry Coffee Cake is delicious and my digital camera does it no justice! I sat and enjoyed my piece this afternoon with some tea! I highly recommend that you make this recipe and then get your butt to the store and pick up a copy of the book! Trust me you will love the cake and the book as well!

Blueberry Coffee Cake

For the Topping:
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
3 tablespoons brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 tablespoon canola oil
1 cup chopped walnuts

For the Cake:
4 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
1/4 cup canola oil
1 (6-ounce) container vanilla soy yogurt
1 cup maple syrup
1 1/2 cups plain soy milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups fresh blueberries

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly grease or spray a 9x13 inch baking pan with nonstick cooking spray.

Make the topping:

Sift together the flour, brown sugar, and cinnamon. Drizzle in the oil a little at a time and mix with your fingertips until crumbs form. Add the walnuts and mix.

Make the cake:

Sift together the dry ingredients into a large bowl. In a separate bowl, vigorously whisk together the wet ingredients until well combined. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix well. Fold in the blueberries. Spread the batter in the prepared pan and sprinkle the topping over it. Bake for 45 minutes, or until a toothpick or knife comes out clean. Tastes great still warm.

This cake was so easy to make and such a great breakfast treat. It was moist and so tasty I caught my husband (who is non-vegan) snacking on it at all hours. I now own "Vegan With A Vengeance", thanks for the heads up!
