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!

My mom loves blueberry desserts, and 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. Samoas Iced Coffee is great paired with either of these coffee cakes.

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

  1. First of all, I recommend using real butter.
  2. For the Greek yogurt, you may substitute buttermilk or sour cream.
  3. Additionally, you may use fresh or frozen blueberries.
  4. You may also add 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon to the crumb topping.
  5. You may also use brown sugar instead of granulated sugar for the streusel (crumb) topping.
  6. Also, you can substitute strawberries, raspberries, blackberries, or peaches for the blueberries.
  7. 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.

  1. Cut back on the sugar! 1/2 cup of brown sugar will Do the trick! Plus it’s more healthier 😊

  2. I am in the process of making this right now! So far everything has been going just fine! Although, I don’t have a Springform pan so I am using a cake pan. I sure hope that it turns out in there because this coffee cake looks luscious 😋😋😋

    I baked this today and the taste is delicious, but it didn’t turn out the way it was supposed to. It was like the cream cheese filling all slid to the center and pushed the cake batter outwards to the edges. Also, the streusel topping just sort of…melted. Still delicious but just strange! Any tips are appreciated.

  4. In the ingredients for the streusel it says 1 large egg Cake, I’m sorry, I don’t understand. What is an egg Cake/

    Dangerously delicious! We did our annual blueberry-picking hike in the mountains and I wanted something special before I froze the rest. Found this recipe and it didn’t disappoint. I, too, almost over baked it because it was still ‘jiggly’. I replaced the yogurt with real buttermilk from our local dairy, and added lemon zest, and I couldn’t find my cheesecake pans so I used an angel food pan with removable bottom. Worked great. Great with coffee, and definitely would be nice for a formal tea.

    1. Thanks so much for your kind words. Happy you liked it. I almost ate the whole cake myself, took it to neighbors so I wouldn’t finish it off and they fought over it 🙂

    I found the cake to be a bit dry but it had a great flavour! I used a full teaspoon of pure vanilla extra. The batter was really thick. Next time I will add a third cup of milk to the recipe for moist cake.

    1. It’s possible you over-cooked it, the cream cheese in it is deceiving when testing for doneness since it stays quite ‘jiggling’ in the center when the cake is actually done. Be careful of getting the batter too thin as the cream cheese mixture will sink to the bottom.

      1. Now that I think about it, I think I did over bake it because the cream cheese was jiggly. Next time, I’ll reduce the baking time.
