Blackberry Whole Wheat Coffee Cake Recipe

Blackberry Whole Wheat Coffee Cake

Taste of Home


  • 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/3 cups packed brown sugar
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • Dash of salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1/3 cup canola oil
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 cups fresh or frozen blackberries

Using applesauce makes this coffee cake recipe lower in fat, plus it's a great way to use fresh blackberries when in season (or frozen when they're not). 


Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. In a large bowl, combine the first 6 ingredients. In another large bowl, combine the egg, buttermilk, oil, applesauce, and vanilla. Stir into dry ingredients just until moistened. Fold in blackberries. Transfer to a 13-by-9-inch baking pan coated with cooking spray.

Bake for 35-40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack.
