For the blueberry topping

  • 1 cup brown sugar packed
  • 1/2 cup real butter margarine or imitation butter won't work
  • 2 cups blueberries fresh or frozen

For the Cake

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs at room temperature
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla
  • 1/2 cup Greek yogurt
  • 1/3 cup whole milk 1%, 2%, cashew, or almond milk may be used


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Grease a 8 or 9-inch springform pan with solid vegetable shortening or non-stick baking spray.
  • I also like to line the bottom with parchment paper. 
  • Sprinkle 1/2 cup melted butter in bottom of the pan. Evenly sprinkle 1 cup brown sugar over the butter. Finally, evenly spread the blueberries over the brown sugar.
  • In a bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
  • In the bowl of a mixer combine oil and sugar on low speed.
  • Add vanilla and eggs. Blend.
  • Slowly mix in the flour mixture alternating with the Greek yogurt and milk.
  • Spoon the batter into the prepared pan and smooth top.
  • Bake for 45 to 50 minutes at 350 degrees F.
  • Test cake by inserting a wooden pick into the center of cake. The cake is done when it comes out clean or with dry crumbs.
  • Cool on a wire rack. After 5 minutes, run a thin knife around the cake edge and loosen the springform ring.
  • Store in the refrigerator up to 5 days.
