Preparing the coffee cake batter:  In a large bowl, using a rubber spatula, cream together the sugar, shortening and egg. Mix in the milk until blended. Sift together the flour, baking powder, cinnamon, ground cloves, all spice and salt, then add to the moist ingredients. Stir until well mixed. Gently fold blueberries into the batter. Spread the batter into the greased cake pan.

Combine all the topping ingredients and drop by spoonfuls over the batter. (I use a pastry cutter to mix these ingredients.)

Baking 30 to 35 minutes. When completely baked a toothpick inserted in the center of the cake will come out clean. Top with some butter and serve.
