Multigrain Berry Fruity Coffeecake Or A Wonderful Anytime Dessert

Happy Birthday to my sunray! I wake her up with ‘Good Morning, Sunray’ everyday. (‘Good Morning, Sunshine’ already taken by her older brother whom I continue to greet that way still). To celebrate, I made a family favorite – the Multigrain Berry Fruity Coffeecake!!

I am not much of a baker (or should I say, not at all) but at times I do use baking mixes to feel like one. In my quest for healthy options, I found Trader Joes Multigrain Pancake and Baking Mix about two years ago. Now, pancakes are a favorite lunch item for the kids. Sometimes, I use it to make coffeecake. I mostly use the recipe on the box with a little twist of my own. Surprisingly, it is a hit at home, which means it has become a regular feature at home.

Multigrain Berry Fruity Coffeecake

What You Need

(my twist)

  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup buttermilk (sometimes I have added ½ cup milk and ½ cup of available juice at home to change the taste a little)
  • 3 tbsps oil
  • 2 ½ cups Trader Joes Multigrain Pancake and Baking Mix
  • ½ cup each of fresh or frozen
    • pineapple bits (I used Trader Joes Frozen Pineapple Bits and they are sweet)
    • blueberries
    • strawberries
  • ½ cup sugar  

How to make:

(as the box says!)

Preheat oven to 350. Whisk together egg, buttermilk and oil. Stir in baking mix and sugar until just moistened. Stir in the fruits/berries. Spread into a greased 8x8x2-inch pan. Bake 45-50 minutes. Allow to cool. Top off with some chocolate syrup if you wish. Enjoy.

Note: You can of course add your own mix of fruits and berries – I have used cranberries, chopped bananas, chocolate bits as well.
