Blackberry Streusel Nut Coffee Cake

There is just something about coffee cake in the morning, don't you agree? I have made this coffee cake many times but have always made it with blueberries. You can find that recipe here.

However, when I was at the store, they had organic blackberries on sale cheaper than the regular ones. So I thought I would try them in this coffee cake. The result was great.

I love blackberries but don't often use them in baking. However, I love them in pancakes. I drop a few on top of the batter in the pan and yummy! Have you ever tried them in pancakes? You really should sometime.
