Streusel Topped Blueberry Cream Cheese Coffee Cake is a magical way to start the day! Crumb cake for breakfast pretty much guarantees a good day! Do you agree?
My mom loves blueberry desserts since I have a freezer full of blueberries I decided to try a blueberry version of a cake similar to my Raspberry Streusel Cream Cheese Coffee Cake.
The base is a soft and buttery cake layer. It’s topped with a ribbon of sweetened cream cheese, then blueberries. Finally, a buttery, crunchy crumb topping finishes this coffee cake.
It’s a decadent cake and very pretty to look at. If you prefer not overly sweet cakes, this is the cake for you. Streusel Topped Blueberry Cream Cheese Coffee Cake makes a great coffee cake for this reason.
I would serve this cake with coffee for brunch. As well, it would make a great dessert cake after dinner. My friends fought over the last piece when I took it to a party. It really is moist and delicious!

Streusel Topped Blueberry Cream Cheese Coffee Cake Tips
- First of all, I recommend using real butter.
- For the Greek yogurt, you may substitute buttermilk or sour cream.
- Additionally, you may use fresh or frozen blueberries.
- As well, you may add 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon to the crumb topping.
- You may also, use brown sugar instead of the granulated sugar for the streusel (crumb) topping.
- Also, you can substitute strawberries, raspberries, blackberries, or peaches for the blueberries.
- Finally, I use 9-inch springform pan from this set. You can use the 8-inch pan, but the cake will need to cook longer.
