old-fashioned blueberry coffee cake

I'm honestly not a big fan of eating blueberries straight, but I still buy tons of them at the farmer's market, because I do love them in baked goods. Particularly of the breakfast-y variety.

I have to be real with you, my life is a wreck right now. I really, really don't feel like going into it. Like, you have no idea. But I'm fatigued as fuck and I lost 3 pounds in a week thanks to a shitty appetite and I am angry at the world for fucking excellent reasons. I regretted picking this recipe almost immediately, because it's fussy and has a lot of steps and I thought I was going to pass out in my kitchen. And then I fell asleep without trying it.

Of course, when I woke up, it was to find a post-it from my aunt on the foil covering the pan that said "Wow!!" and I tried it myself and sweet Jesus was it good. Fussiness for the win. Even coating the damn blueberries with panko instead of flour – they did not sink AT ALL, forming a thick layer of sweet and intensely blueberry jam. The cinnamon-sugar layer I thought about skipping? Divine. The possibly excessive amount of crumb? Apparently, no such thing.

I am not going to bother typing up a recipe here, because I didn't make any changes. Okay, well I may have used polenta instead of cornmeal but don't do that, that was the act of a desperate very light-headed person who couldn't find cornmeal. So you can find the recipe here, and just do what it tells you to do.
