Blackberry Coffee Cake by Rachel

Warm Blackberry coffee cake, made me wish I had vanilla bean Ice cream. This is a brand new recipe I cooked up last night, it was delicious, there is always a time when you suddenly wish you had vanilla bean ice cream. I enjoy fresh blackberries, but all I had on hand was a can of blackberry pie filling so I used that instead. Coffee cake can be many flavors, this is just one enticing way to add something special to your coffee cake. Ingredients: 1 1/2 c. Flour 1 tsp. Baking powder 1/2 tsp. salt 1/2 tsp. baking soda 1/2 c. sugar 1 Tbs. Butter melted 1/2 c. Milk 2 eggs 1 c. Blackberry pie filling Directions: Preheat oven to 350 Degrees and grease a 9 x 9 baking pan. Mix together flour, baking powder, salt, baking soda, and sugar. Add melted butter, milk, and eggs. Mix together until smooth. Pour coffee cake batter into greased baking pan. Topping: In a small bowl mix 1/4 c. flour, 1/4 c. sugar, and 1/4 tsp. nutmeg. Cut in 2 Tbs. Butter Spread half of the topping on to the batter, then add all of the blackberry pie filling. Spread the rest of the topping on top and bake for 1 hour.
