Ingredients Add to grocery list

Streusel Topping:

1/4 cup slivered almonds
1/4 cup granulated sugar
2 tablespoons (1/4 stick) unsalted butter
2 1/2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Coffee Cake:

2 tablespoons (1/4 stick) unsalted butter
1 tablespoon light brown sugar
1 (12-ounce) tube buttermilk biscuits
1 cup blueberries, fresh or frozen and thawed





For the streusel topping: Combine the almonds, sugar, butter, flour, and cinnamon in a food processor and pulse until large crumbs form.

For the coffee cake: Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.

In a 9-inch cast-iron or other ovenproof skillet, cook the butter and brown sugar over medium heat until melted. Arrange the biscuits in a single layer in the skillet. Scatter the blueberries over the biscuits, and then distribute the streusel topping over the berries. Bake until the biscuits are golden and a tester inserted in the center of a biscuit comes out clean, about 30 minutes. Allow to cool slightly and serve from the skillet.

I have always loved your show and recipes especially quick and easy ones. I would love to see you back on television.

Made exactly as the recipe said, only used 14oz tube Buttermilk biscuits. This is so good I can;y believe it takes less than 45 minutes to make start to taking out of oven. I wouldn't change a thing.

This is so easy and delicious! It tastes like you baked all!! I didnt even use a food processor for the crumbs. I simply mixed well with a spoon. The key is to have soft butter. I have made it twice now. I made half blueberries and half apple...very yummy!~ This is a keeper!!

Made this recipe, but forgot to buy the almonds so poured a little amaretto over the cake after it began cooking. I personally thought the biscuit part of the interior cake was less moist than I like (used Pillsbury Grands Buttermilk biscuit dough), but my friends loved it and ate it voraciously. It was easy and I will make it again. We are big Paula Deen fans and make it a tradition to visit Lady and Sons when we make it to Savannah!

I gave this 5 stars. very easy to make. A hit with my 4 year old. I blended my struessel mix in a blender on crumb setting. didnt actually crumb all the way but I finished blending it with a spoon. I used pillsbury biscuits. I also used blackberry instead of blueberries because I didnt have any. I was a little worried but the blackberries actually came out DELICIOUS!. This dish is a first but will not definitely be the last ---- a special dish for guests for sure! Love u Paula Deen!!!
