Expert Tips

Dripping with the juicy, sweet flavor of blackberries, this glorious coffee cake is a great make-ahead treat. Wrap it tightly, and tuck it away in your freezer for up to 2 months to serve when unexpected guests drop by.

For an extra-nutty crunch, sprinkle some chopped toasted pecans over the glazed cake.
