Blueberry Cream Cheese Coffee Cake

Hello! Thank you for stopping by for a visit and your advice on my new contacts. My appointment went well and it wasn't as hard as I thought it would be. They said I couldn't leave the store until I put them in/took them out three times in a row and since I don't like to waste time, I figured it out in about 15 minutes! We'll see if I still remember in the morning!

Blueberry cake
Today I would like to share a recipe for Blueberry Cream Cheese Coffee Cake. If you have blueberries in your freezer, or can get them on sale like they are here in Texas, then you should try this cake!

Blueberry Cream Cheese Coffee Cake

1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 cup milk
2 cups all-purpose flour, divided
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
8 oz. cream cheese, chilled
1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries

Topping:
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 cup flour
3 tablespoons butter, cut into cubes

Preheat oven to 350F. Cream butter and sugar in large mixing bowl. Add eggs, vanilla and milk. In a separate bowl, combine 1 3/4 cups of the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Add to butter mixture and blend well.

Cut cream cheese into small cubes. Set aside. Combine blueberries and remaining 1/4 cup flour in small bowl. Add blueberries, along with the cream cheese cubes to cake batter and gently fold in. Spread in a greased 9 x 13 pan.

Topping: Mix brown sugar, cinnamon and flour together in small bowl. With a pastry blender, two knives or your fingers blend in butter until crumbly. Sprinkle over cake. Bake for 30-35 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.

Let me know if you try it!

Hi Kelli! This really sounds good. I am having overnight company on Sunday so maybe I will try this for Monday AM breakfast. I, also, thought about Krispy Kremes for breakfast...a favorite of my guest.

You are so funny! I giggled when you said you don't like to waste time so you figured out how to put your contacts in fast. HE! HE! HE!

Hope the little kiddles get well soon. You stay well too, Love, Debbi

Ooohh, this sounds wonderful. My two year old absolutely adores blueberries. I will have to try the recipe. Your blog is beautiful. Very inspiring. You make beautiful scrapbooking crafts!

Sue said...

That looks fabulous. I want to try it as soon as I get some more cream cheese and blueberries! I hope you enjoy your new lenses. I have had mine since I was 11 years old (my vision is terrible). I can't imagine life without them!

Jenny said...

This looks and sounds DELICIOUS!!! I think I may make it this weekend! Can't wait to try it!!

Connie W said...

The recipe looks great. I remember my trying to learn to put in contacts, ouch. It was difficult for me, yet so easy for most people. I ended up not continuing for I couldn't see well enough; I wear bifocals and my Dr couldn't fit me well in contacts. Sigh. I am doomed for glasses.

Homespun Simplicity said...

This sounds so good. My husband LOVES blueberries, so I know he will really like this. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

Oh I wish I had some of that with the coffee I'm drinking now!! I have a good many blue berries in the freezer from the summer. You think black berries would work too?

Wish you luck on the contacts...Im jealous! I couldnt ever wear them b/c my eyes are to dry from allergies. Drops didnt help either...oh but they are soooo nice!!

Tina Leigh said...

Kelli this is for Debbi......get a blog so we can hear more from you!! Anyone who wants to serve Krispy Kremes to their guests is a winner in my book & NEEDS A BLOG!!!! Come on Debbi...you can do it!! Blog them Krispy Kremes!!
Darn I wish I had a dozen! LOL!!

Looks delicious...I am going to have to try that.. My kids are for anything blueberry.lol

On the contacts...I wore them when i was younger and then with babies, just wore glasses for years. I got contacts again this last year and it took me about a week to remember that they have a "123" on them that tell you whether they are inside out or not...lots of days of trying to figure out why they were so uncomfortable.lol.. But now that I have it figured out, I love them. When I do have to wear my glasses, they give me a headache if I wear them very long. I hope you enjoy your contacts.

Blessings
Crystal

Oh, this looks so yummy! ... and the directions seem like something even I could follow without ruin! (LOL).

Glad to hear you and your new contacts are friends. I recall my first encounter ... the tech stood watching, obviously impatient as I fumbled ... she informed me that a Downs' boy had done it the day before in half the time. Talk about being embarrassed!

Sending warm wishes to you ALL for a great day!

Recipe is great. I would do it a little differently, though. Instead of mixing the cream cheese and blueberries with the batter, I would layer the cream cheese over the dough and sprinkle the blueberries over and between the cream cheese cubes. Then I would sprinkle the topping over that. This same idea can be used for any muffin recipe. I sweeten the cream cheese for the blueberries first. Blackberries and even strawberries work just as well. I have used these fruits too.

Needled Mom said...

Man....that sounds good!!!! I like the idea of cubes of cream cheese.

Glad you figured out those contacts so quickly.

Emily said...

It looks delicious and I will have to try it! :)

Vera said...

I was going to ask if you could use blackberries instead of blueberries, anonymous has already answered my question. I have blackberries in my freezer from Janet, at Writing in The Blackberry Patch.
Sorry, I don't know how to do the link.

Just popping in to say that cake looks delicious and your Anne of Green Gables doll is sweet.

Yum! this looks delicious!

MyJourneyBack said...

I didn't get to comment earlier but I know you will love the contacts especially if you can sleep in them. I love them. Can't afford them right now but I had absolutely no prob.
Good luck. Cake sounds good I might have to try. I actually have all the ingredients!
Have a great Thurs. I won't be able to join in this week but hopefully soon.
Blessings,

sounds yummy!

I have been wearing one contact for many years now. I am near sighted so I don't need glasses to read. I wear the contact for distance in my right eye and read with my left. I hope you enjoy the contacts. It is better than having to put glasses on all the time and keep up with them when you aren't wearing them.

Belinda said...

It's safe to say I have started a new work out schedule to balance my prego weight and post prego weight but... Now, I don't know after seeing this post and recipe. YUMMY! How can anyone not try it and eat all of it in a single moment. It looks so good. At least to me. :)

Huckleberries can be used too. Also raspberries are fabulous. Same for muffins with cream cheese and the fruits. I also used drained pineapple chunks that I cut into smaller pieces.

Country Reflections said...

I made this recipe yesterday and it was a HIT! Very good and I love the pcs. of cream cheese in it. Thanks for posting the recipe; it's a keeper! I posted a picture of it on my blog and directed all that was interested to your blog for the recipe.

Hi, Kelli,
