Another recipe from Pinehurst Inn Bed & Breakfast in Bayfield, WI:
If you are a blackberry fan, then this recipe is for you. Even if you are not a fan, this recipe is very versatile. Feel free to use any other berries, maybe raspberries or blueberries, but our preference is blackberries–the combination of the blackberries and the cream cheese is hard to beat. I found this recipe on Sally’s Baking Addiction blog, it is one of my favorite blogs. The recipes and directions are outstanding.
I like to make this the day before and once cooled, refrigerate overnight. I think this really helps enhance the flavors. In the morning, take it out to bring it to room temperature or serve cold. This blackberry coffee cake is one of the many different “starters” for the three course breakfasts we serve at PInehurst Inn Bed & Breakfast in beautiful Bayfield, Wisconsin. We hope you enjoy this coffee cake as much as we do!
