Expert Tips

For Cranberry Coffee Cake, use coarsely chopped cranberries instead of the blueberries, chopped dried apricots instead of the cherries and almond extract instead of the vanilla.

To sugar the blueberries for a garnish, roll frozen blueberries in sugar, or lightly brush fresh or frozen blueberries with corn syrup, then roll in sugar.
