So am I the only one that didn’t know that overnight breakfast cakes were a thing? I found just a simple overnight coffee cake on Allrecipes and my mind starting working overtime on how to make the kind of overnight breakfast cake that I love.

I love anything lemon and blueberry, so of course my first attempt at an overnight coffee cake would be a blueberry one. I will delve into some more seasonal ones but sometimes that burst of berry flavour in the middle of winter is priceless. Sometimes it’s worth paying the premium for blueberries and fresh lemons at the store for a treat like this.

    In the recipe you ask for 1/2 cup melted butter, I added it to the wet mixture. The cake comes out white , not appetizing.
    Had company, some dared to try it pouring some heavy cream on it to moisten it. But all in all, it was doughy at the bottom and didn’t rise, was not fluffy like on your link pictures. NOT a good recipe.

    Hello! I noticed in the ingredients it says 1/2 cup of melted butter. However I don’t see it in the recipe anywhere.
