One piece equals 224 calories, 8 g fat (4 g saturated fat), 31 mg cholesterol, 346 mg sodium, 34 g carbohydrate, 1 g fiber, 5 g protein. Diabetic Exchanges: 2 starch, 1-1/2 fat.

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, beat the butter and sugar until crumbly. Beat in the egg, egg whites, applesauce, oil and lemon peel. Combine 2 cups flour, baking powder, salt and baking soda; add to the sugar mixture alternately with buttermilk, beating well after each addition.
  2. In a bowl, toss blueberries with remaining flour; fold into batter along with cream cheese. Pour into a 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish coated with cooking spray.
  3. For topping, combine the flour, sugar and lemon peel in a bowl; cut in butter until mixture is crumbly. Sprinkle over batter.
  4. Bake at 375° for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool completely on a wire rack. Yield: 15 servings.
Editor's Note: If using frozen blueberries, use without thawing to avoid discoloring the batter.
