Blueberry Coffee Cake
Health Highlights


4 large Egg (separated)
1 3/4 cup Granulated sugar
3 tsp Vanilla extract, imitation, no alcohol
1 cup Vegetable oil
1 tsp Lemon extract
2 1/2 cup All-purpose white flour
3 tsp Baking soda
2 cup Blueberries
1/2 cup Blueberries (for bottom of pan)
1/2 cup, sifted Powdered/icing sugar (for glaze)
2 tbsp Maple syrup, pure (for glaze)
3 tsp Partly skimmed milk, 2% M.F. (for glaze - doesn't have to be 2%)


With an electric mixer (I use a Kitchen Aid mixer), beat egg whites for approximately 5 minutes or until quite frothy.

Add the sugar, vanilla, oil and lemon flavouring and continue to beat for 30 seconds until mixed together well.

In a separate bowl, combine the flour and baking powder. Add blueberries and stir until blueberries are coated.

Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and gently fold together (with a spatula) until combined. Be sure not to over fold as the cake will turn out too dense.

Pour ½ cup of blueberries into the bottom of a bundt or tube pan. Pour batter into pan. Bake at 350 degrees F for 45 - 60 minutes or until toothpick inserted comes out clean.

Let cake COOL in the pan on a cooling rack.

For the glaze, in a small bowl or measuring cup, stir together icing sugar, maple syrup and 2 tsp milk.

Continue to add a small amount of milk until the icing runs off of your fork.

Turn cake out of pan onto a plate and drizzle the glaze over top.


You can use lemon juice instead of lemon flavouring.

You can use fresh blueberries instead of frozen.
