This is delicious! The recipe is a bit detailed, but oh so worth it! I won 2nd Prize at the Burlington County Farm Fair here in NJ in the Cake Division two weeks ago. I hope you enjoy it!

Yum! This blueberry crumb cake is delightful. The cake dense and slightly sweet. You get a great surprise when you bite in and taste the cream cheese and blueberries in the middle. The crumb topping adds a little crunch. This will be great for breakfast, brunch or even dessert if you don't like overly sweet desserts. The Test Kitchen

How to Make Blueberry Cream Cheese Crumb Cake

Step-by-Step

  1. Grease a 9 x 13 pan and pre-heat oven to 350. For the filling, beat together cream cheese and sugar.
  2. Once creamed, add vanilla and egg. Set aside.
  3. For the cake, in another bowl combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  4. In a separate bowl, cream together butter, granulated sugar, eggs and vanilla.
  5. Add the flour mixture alternately with the sour cream into the wet batter until well blended.
  6. Pour half the batter into a well-greased 9x13 pan.
  7. Spread the cream cheese filling over the batter.
  8. Place about a pint of blueberries, I use a little more, over the cream cheese mixture. Cover the cream cheese layer with remaining batter.
  9. For the crumb topping, using a pastry blender combine cold butter, flour and sugar until the mixture looks like small peas.
  10. Sprinkle the crumb topping over the top of the cake.
    Bake in a 350 oven for 55- 60 minutes. Test in center with toothpick. DO NOT LET THE TOP GET BROWN! It will be overbaked and dry!
  11. Let cool, cut and enjoy!!
