Shnozberries taste like shnozberries and this coffeecake right there looks like pac-man.

Most importantly it tastes delicious, and sometimes coffee cake can be dessert with a grilled dinner.

Good thing it’s summer because these blueberries are Michigan’s finest, and they needed to be used promptly or they would’ve ruined everything by giving up on life.

So make this! For dessert! For breakfast! For guests! For fun! For the sake of all blueberries in the world that need a home!
