Growing up, we had this every 4th of July, Memorial Day, block party — you name it. Whatever holidays or warm weather occasions were on the calendar, a blueberry kuchen was on the table. This sweet fruit tart is delicious on-trend and perfect for summer.

With Kristen Coffield’s version calling it seven ingredients and six steps, this summer favorite is a winner every time.

And, it can be made even more festive with an addition.

“You can add fresh raspberries to the filling and then sprinkle with icing sugar,” Coffield told USA TODAY in an email. “It gives a festive presentation in red, white and blue.”
