Vegan Blueberry Streusel Cake, GF Option

Easy Citrusy Blueberry Dessert For Breakfast Or Anytime

Blueberry Streusel Cake

Blueberry Streusel Cake: Sometimes I'm feeling too lazy to spoon out the muffin batter. Sometimes I just want cake for breakfast. So one day I just put the muffin batter into a cake pan.

The kids love cake for breakfast, and I love that Blueberry Streusel Cake isn't too sweet.

On the other hand, this cake makes a perfect dessert served with ice cream! - Sarah Kingsbury

Gluten Free Option:

  • Use 2 1/2 cups gf baking flour mix + 2 Tbsp cornstarch instead of 3 cups flour.
  • If there is NO xanthan gum in the gf mix, add 1 tsp, or increase the ground flax seed to 2 Tbsp.
  • Add 5 - 10 minutes to baking time as it takes longer to brown.

  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/3 cup Earth Balance or other vegan butter substitute.

Recipe Tips:

I used 1/4 cup solid coconut oil + 1/4 tsp salt for the streusel topping, in place of the 1/3 cup Earth Balance butter substitute, and that worked well.

For the cake, I used 1/3 cup melted coconut oil, but any cooking oil would work, except olive oil.

Barley or light spelt flour can substitute for all purpose wheat flour.

When using a darker granulated sugar, the topping will brown more quickly, so keep an eye on it. If the top is browned but the cake isn't quite done, cover the top loosely with foil wrap.
