Bursting with strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, and raspberries, this Mixed Berry Coffee Cake is moist and light, with cinnamon sprinkled in!
I’m jumping right to the weekend today, friends! I know it’s only Monday, but I’m just going to pretend that tomorrow is Friday and that the weekend is almost here. Maybe some wishful thinking will make this week go by fast!
One thing that I look forward to most on weekends is relaxing in the morning with a steaming cup of tea and a delicious breakfast to snack on. It’s my morning routine and helps me relax and gear up for the day.
Since the hubster is an early riser (much unlike my non-morning self), I usually sleep try to sleep later, if possible, and start the day out leisurely.
And since I’m a creature of habit, the first thing I do when I wake up on the weekends is to pour myself a cup of tea, make breakfast, and settle in front of the television to watch The Food Network for a few minutes. This slowly eases me into a positive mood to start the day.
A soothing cup of tea and a tasty breakfast sounds like the perfect morning to me! Especially when the cold weather hits, tea is the perfect drink to warm me up. Bigelow tea has always been my favorite brand. There are so many flavors to chose from and each one is more delicious than the next. My go-to flavor for this month has been Cinnamon Stick and Constant Comment. Both are black teas, with a robust flavor that tickles your taste buds.
I like my tea on the sweeter side, so I always turn to sugar to liven it up a bit.
I used to use regular white sugar in my drink, until I heard about the benefits of using Truvia Natural Sweetener. Besides containing no calories, it’s the#1 sweetener in the U.S. and is made with stevia leaf extract. It’s also gluten-free and more beneficial in aiding in a healthier life style. Sounds pretty good, right?
After I discovered my love of Truvia, I moved onto their Baking Blend. It contains natural ingredients, has few calories than regular sugar, but tastes exactly the same. Now that’s definitely a winner in my book! Every month, I make a Target run (one of my favorite stores) and stock up on Truvia Baking Blend and Bigelow tea. They always have a generous supply, which definitely aids in my baking habits!
So because these two products are staples in my kitchen, I decided to whip up this Mixed Berry Coffee Cake. Bursting with strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, and raspberries, this cake is moist and light, with cinnamon sprinkled in. And to top it off, a mixture of brown sugar and cinnamon is nestled on top.
And making this Mixed Berry Coffee Cake couldn’t be easier! From start to finish, this cake will take less than an hour, so you can whip it up in morning for breakfast, with time to spare! Simply mix together the dry ingredients and wet ingredients separately, then stir to combine. Then gently fold in some frozen mixed berries and spread in the prepared pan.
To make the streusel topping (my favorite part!), cream together some softened butter, brown sugar, flour, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Easy peasy, right? Simply sprinkle it on top of the cake mixture before baking.
When the coffee cake is lightly browned and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, your breakfast is ready! As soon as this Mixed Berry Coffee Cake came out of the oven, I eagerly cut a slice. The tartness of the fruit goes so well with the sweet batter. I grabbed my favorite mug of tea and settled into enjoy my breakfast.
So the next time you want to relax and take some time for yourself, why not whip up this Mixed Berry Coffee Cake? Since it’s made with Truvia Baking Blend, you can feel good about what you’re eating.

Coffee cake is soooo good! I went through a phase where I’d go to Starbucks every morning before my summer job and get a slice of berry coffee cake… and then of course when the job ended I started making my own. Your recipe looks amazing! 🙂
Thanks, Medha! I love coffee cake, too, though I don’t make it as much as I should. I’m definitely changing that after making this berry kind!
This coffee cake looks and I’m sure tastes amazing! Never baked with Truvia, but will definitely try!
Thanks, Mira! You should definitely try Truvia!
God, I wish it was Friday already!! I start my work week on Tuesdays and am really not wanting to go back to work tomorrow! I used to watch Food Network every morning too and then we got rid of cable and now I can’t do it anymore! I would love to sit and watch the food network with you while drinking tea and eating this delicious coffee cake!
Is it bad that I start counting down to Friday on Mondays?! 🙂 Thanks for the kind words, Izzy!
This coffee cake would make me want to get up early any day! This looks incredible, Gayle! Pinned 🙂
Thanks for the cake love and pin, Danielle!
I don’t bake nearly enough desserts, but I just love that you used truvia here. It looks so delicious Gayle.
Thank you, Kathy!
This coffee cake looks amazing! So moist! I love that you lightened it up with Truvia! And you and I can be in the “non-morning people married to morning people” support group together! Is there a support group for that? There should be! 🙂
Haha we definitely need to form a support group for that, Lindsey! Good idea! 🙂
A sugary struesel topping, I can have it anytime. This coffee cake looks absolutely good. Pinned.
Aren’t streusel toppings the best? Thanks for the kind words and for stopping by, Ash!
I love coffee cake, especially on the weekend. Saturdays are just made for extra special breakfasts like this! This coffee cake looks fantastic Gayle!
Thank you, Stacey!
This looks like a delicious coffee cake!I have to have coffee in the morning and then I drink matcha tea all day long. Stevia is a great alternative to sugar, and I like that you don’t have to use nearly as much to sweeten.
Thanks, Linda! I do like stevia, too. And I will have to look into matcha tea!
This coffee cake is lookin’ so delicious!! I love that it has berries mixed in, thats gotta taste awesome! Pinned 🙂
Thank you, Christina!
What a yummy looking cake! I love easy snack cakes like this! They never last long at my house! 🙂
My mom was obsessed with coffee cake as a kid and she passed that on to me. Your recipe looks so delicious and moist, I love it!
ALL THINGS COFFEECAKE. Streusel for life! And what a great way to use up mixed berries. I think I have three half open bags in my freezer … yeah, definitely need to get on board with baking with them instead of just smoothie-ing. Baby, it’s cold outside! Coffee + cake = my kinda morning. Love that this is lighter too!
Streusel is definitely amazing! Thanks for the kind words, Mary Frances!
Tea and coffee cake ~ the perfect combination! This looks incredible! Pinned
Thank you, Michelle! It’s a great breakfast and so full of flavor!
Mmmmm, mmmm, mmmm!!! That looks YUMMY!!!
Anyhoo, I found your blog through a fellow blogger, and just thought I would stop by and say hi! It would totally make my day if you did the same… or better yet, keep in touch!! <3 – http://www.domesticgeekgirl.com
Thanks for stopping, Gingi!
I actually really like Truvia! More than Splenda, which I feel has a slightly more “chemically” taste. This coffee cake looks delicious!
Thanks, Natalie! I totally agree with you. Truvia seems like the more natural choice, especially since it’s a bit healthier!
Yummy!! This looks so good– especially that crumbly topping!! Definitely perfect with a hot cup of tea!
Thank you, Jess! That topping is my favorite, too!
Your Weekend morning routine sounds so relaxing!! I absolutely love it – and I need to make thus mixed berry coffee cake. Alongside a piece of coffee it looks like the perfect way to start the morning!! I love the step by step photos 😀 Pinned!
Thanks for the cake love and pin, Ceara! This coffee cake helps start my weekend on the right track!
Hey! This looks so good that I’m making it right now! You don’t say to, but I’m assuming that I mix the flour/baking powder/salt/cinnamon after the eggs but before the berries?! Let me know if I assumed incorrectly. Thanks for the recipe though! It looks delicious and I’m hoping it turns out great!
Hi Leah! I’m sorry I’m late to respond, as I’m sure it’s already done baking! But you would just follow the directions fully, so first mix the dry ingredients and then add the eggs, etc to the dry (right in the same bowl) and then fold in the berries. If you mix the eggs before it should turn out as long as you slowly fold in the rest. I hope you loved this and please let me know how it turned out!
