Triple Berry Coffee Cake

Triple Berry Coffee Cake

This Triple Berry Coffee Cake is perfect for breakfast or dessert this summer. A soft cake filled with blueberries, blackberries, and raspberries and a buttery streusel is a very good idea.  


For the streusel:

  • 1/3 cup (67 grams) granulated sugar
  • 2/3 cup (83 grams) all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 4 tbsp (1/2 stick or 57 grams) unsalted butter, softened but still cool

For the cake:

  • 2 cups (250 grams) all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 8 tbsp (1 stick or 113 grams) unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 1 cup (200 grams) granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs, at room temperature
  • 1 cup (240 grams) sour cream, at room temperature
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 cups mixed blueberries, blackberries, and raspberries


For the streusel:
In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together sugar, flour, cinnamon, and salt. Add butter and work it in with your fingers or a fork until the mixture is crumbly like moist bread crumbs. Set aside while you make the cake batter.

For the cake:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Generously butter a large loaf pan (mine was 5 & 1/2 by 10 inches).

In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. In the bowl of a stand mixer, beat butter and sugar with the paddle attachment until light and fluffy, 4 to 5 minutes. Beat in eggs one at a time, scraping down the bowl after each addition. Add sour cream and vanilla, and beat for 1 more minute. Add the dry ingredients and beat on low until just incorporated, about 30 seconds, making sure not to overwork the batter. Gently fold in the berries, transfer to a loaf pan, and top with streusel.

Bake for 55 minutes to an hour or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Let cool to room temperature before serving.

Oh my berries and cake and crumble all in one! Definitely my kind of treat ;)

Use the freshest berries you can get. The firmer they are, the better they'll hold up when you fold them into the batter.
