Daylight Savings Time= Blueberry Coffee Cake

blueberry coffee cakeIn my class at church we all sign up months in advance to bring breakfast. I signed up for March 13th simply because I knew we’d be in town that day; however I did NOT realize that that was the Sunday of daylight savings time. Usually everyone grabs a box of donuts from the donut shop next to church and that’s what they bring for breakfast. I love a good cake donut don’t get me wrong but there was no way I wasn’t going to make something scrumptious to share! I decided I was going to make a blueberry coffee cake. I snagged this recipe out of the Food Network magazine in an article called 50 Things to Make with Yogurt. I got up even earlier to make this bad boy and luckily, it was so worth it!
