Blueberry Cobblestone

This coffee cake is a delicious combination of cinnamon, sugar, blueberries and oats served up on a foundation of biscuit dough. Enjoyed alongside a cup of good coffee makes it a superb breakfast.

IMG_1837 I named this recipe Blueberry Cobblestone because after cutting the biscuits into fourths and dipping them in melted butter and cinnamon sugar they look like cobblestones when you place them in the pan.

One of my favorite parts of this recipe is when you add the blueberries to the granulated sugar. As you mix it together, press down on the blueberries slightly to release some of the juices and you get the most beautiful purple colored sugar. It’s the simple things in life right? Take that delicious cobblestone biscuit foundation and add oats and blueberries on top and you get this beauty. Oh, the aroma in the kitchen while this bakes is divine!
