Blueberry Coffee Cake

Thanks to Paleo Parents for having Urban Poser as a guest blogger. This recipe was adapted from their berry's and cream breakfast cake and adapted again to create the Southern Peach Cobbler recipe.

For starters, I quadrupled the recipe which meant I needed 20, YES 20 egg yolks. Of course I was excited because I got to try separating eggs with a empty water bottle. Yep it works!! See Separate eggs video.
I still had a few egg yolks break but it didn't detour me from finishing this recipe. I am ashamed to report I threw the contaminated egg whites away as I had so many broken egg yolks within the whites(that's another story). This is why I adapted a recipe that uses the whole egg when I was working on the Southern Peach Cobbler.

Blueberry Coffee Cake
  • 1 cup coconut flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 20 egg yolks
  • 3/4 cup maple syrup or other liquid sweetener
  • 1 cup coconut oil (melted)
  • 1/2 cup full-fat coconut milk
  • 2 1/2 Tbls lemon juice
  • 1/3 cup of butter
  • 1 1/2 to 2 cups blueberries, frozen or fresh
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Put butter in 10 inch round baking dish (I used a silicone dish) and place in oven.
  3. Keep and eye on the melting butter while you assemble the ingredients and remove once the butter is melted.
  4. In a small bowl, combine dry ingredients and set aside.
  5. Using a hand mixer, beat egg yolks for a couple minutes in a medium bowl. 
  6. Once yolks are thoroughly blended add the sweetener, oil, and lemon juice and mix well.
  7. Add the dry ingredients to the egg mixture while mixing.
  8. Pour batter over the melted butter in the baking dish.
  9. Sprinkle the blueberries all over the top of the batter. push some down into the batter to distribute throughout the cake.  
  10. Place in oven and bake for 45 to 55 minutes or until the center no longer jiggles(technical baking term) or bounces back with you touch the center.
  11. Serve warm with coconut ice cream or simple pour some coconut milk over the steaming hot cake. I enjoy the cake just like it is straight from the oven.
What kind of fruit did you try with this recipe?
