Just pulled this out of the oven and it is good for a low sugar coffee cake. In fact, the only thing I would change is to add maybe 1/4 c. brown sugar to the crumbled topping mix. I used frozen blueberries and I may try again with whole wheat flour.

About

This comes together quickly and bakes up tall and fluffy. It's not too sweet with only 5 tablespoons of sugar; and no oil. Just 4 tablespoons of butter in the entire cake.
