I love recipes that lend themselves to adaptation. Feel free to substitute whatever fruit you may have on hand or prefer. If you're using frozen fruit do not thaw it before adding it to the recipe. Add more cream cheese if you want. I've substituted 1/2 c of sour cream or vanilla yogurt for the cream cheese with wonderful results. Feel free to add any spices or flavorings that compliment the fruit you're using. I've also added 1/4 c of oats to the topping to give it a yummy, heartier texture. Any way you bake up this delicious and easy cake I know your family will enjoy it as much as mine!

Blue Ribbon Recipe

This fruit-filled coffee cake is perfect for summer. It's a moist, buttery cake with a fruity, tangy, and creamy filling. Each slice is bursting with blueberries. A light dessert for a hot summer day. To add a bit of sweetness, top it with a dollop of whipped cream. Yum! Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
