Blackberry Lemon Coffee Cake #SpringSweetsWeek

This post is sponsored in conjunction with #SpringSweetsWeek. I received product samples from sponsor companies to help in the creation of the #SpringSweetsWeek recipes. All opinions are mine alone.

For Day 4 of #SpringSweetsWeek, I am loving this Blackberry Lemon Coffee Cake.  Coffee Cakes have gone by the wayside, as fewer people get together for coffee and chatting than in my growing up days. This coffee cake is a spin-off one my mom used to make!  I hope you enjoy it!

Great for dessert, but try it as an addition to your Saturday morning breakfast. It will start your day off right!
