Blueberry Coffee Cake

Cake for breakfast?? Don't mind if I do! This blueberry coffee cake is lightly sweetened and  full of blueberries. It's partially made with whole wheat flour to give it a healthy spin. There's only 2 tablespoons of butter and the moisture comes from yogurt instead of sour good for you! So I guess I shouldn't feel that bad eating it first thing in the morning!
Blueberry Coffee Cake
Recipe adapted from Food Network
2 tablespoons butter, at room temperature
2 tablespoons canola oil
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup plain nonfat yogurt
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup whole-wheat flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1 cup fresh blueberries

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray an 8-inch square cake pan with cooking spray.

In a large bowl, beat the brown sugar, butter and oil until fluffy. Beat in the eggs, 1 at a time, beating until fully combined. Beat in the vanilla and yogurt.
In a separate bowl, whisk together the all-purpose and whole-wheat flours, the baking soda and salt. Add the flour mixture to the wet mixture, in 2 batches, stirring until just combined. (do not overmix or your coffee cake will be tough)
In a separate small bowl, stir together the granulated sugar and cinnamon.
Spread half of the batter into the prepared pan. Sprinkle half of the sugar mixture over the batter and top with the blueberries, gently pressing them into the batter. Spoon the rest of the batter into the pan, smoothing the top. Sprinkle the remaining sugar mixture over the cake, pressing gently. Bake until a wooden toothpick inserted in center comes out clean, about 30 to 35 minutes. Let cool slightly and cut the cake into 2-inch squares.
