Ingredients

  • FOR THE CREAM CHEESE LAYER

  • 6.5 oz (1 tub) Bruegger's Whipped Blueberry Greek cream cheese*
  • 1/2 cup fresh blueberries
  • 2 tsp granulated sugar
  • 1 egg white
  • pinch of Kosher salt
  • 1/2 tbsp pure vanilla extract
  • FOR THE STREUSEL

  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup dark brown sugar
  • pinch of Kosher salt
  • 1/4 cup cold unsalted butter, cut into pieces
  • FOR THE CAKE

  • 5 tbsp unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 1/2 tbsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1-3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1-1/2 cups fresh blueberries

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350ºF and grease a 9-inch square baking dish.
  2. To prepare cream cheese layer: Cook blueberries and sugar together over medium heat until blueberries release juice. Mash and transfer to a bowl. Add cream cheese, egg white, salt and vanilla. Whisk until smooth. Set aside.
  3. To prepare streusel: In a medium bowl, mix together flour, brown sugar and salt. Cut in butter with your pastry blender or fingers until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Set aside.
  4. To prepare batter: Beat all batter ingredients (except blueberries) in a large bowl with an electric mixer at medium speed. Pour batter into prepared dish. Scatter blueberries on top.
  5. Top with cream cheese layer, then follow up with the streusel mixture. Bake for 1 hour (check at 50 minutes), or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool cake for 15 minutes in pan on wire rack. Slice and serve with coffee.
