Blueberry Lemon Crumb Cake

Who doesn’t just love, love, love breakfast?  Seriously, my family absolutely loves breakfast.  With the crazy schedule we keep around here (127 kids is a lot to manage) we don’t always have the opportunity to sit down to a big breakfast in the mornings. So, breakfast for dinner is always a hit!

Whether you enjoy breakfast in the a.m. or at the end of your busy day this Blueberry Lemon Crumb Cake is sure to become a family favorite!  This coffee cake can be prepared a day or two in advance and will pair perfectly with any of your favorite  breakfast dishes!  I suggest pairing it with scrambled eggs with fresh dill and cream and some super easy breakfast sausages!
