"This was a nice quick dessert. I had a lot of fresh blueberries and wanted something different than a cobbler. Everyone loved this."

"Made this for brunch yesterday-it was delicious! Everyone loved it. I doubled the crumb topping, and tossed the cream cheese cubes in flour before adding to batter. They were fairly evenly distributed in the cake. I also made a glaze with powder sugar, lemon juice and cream cheese and drizzled it over the top while it was warm! A definite keeper!!"

"Easy recipe and simple ingredient list! This recipe is nice if you are looking to make something in a 8x8 square baking dish. I cubed the cream cheese and leth it soften at room temp, and added after I mixed in the blueberries. Came out perfect at 40 mins."

"Mine came out so dry. It was simple to assemble and it looked amazing! I don't know why it was so dry. It looks dry even when cut. :( Ideas?"

"Very, very good. I do think next time I may make more topping. I agree with those who said the cream cheese needs to be softened first. Maybe softening it in order to swirl it through might help. I did have some areas where there was no cream cheese at all. Still, though, this was a delicious coffee cake and I will make it again."

"Was concerned about the bland comment below. Not bland at all. It is WONDERFUL! I like that you include the cream cheese at the end so the little morsels are in there like a treat. I made in a loaf pan."

"This was a great recipe, easy and fast to make. I used 1/2 cup of blueberries and 1/2 cup of black berries instead of all blueberries."

"was very good...I was hoping the cream cheese would have melted out a bit instead of staying in a chunk so I may soften it an mix it in next time but overall really really yummy"

"This coffee cake came out bland and although I mixed the frozen berries with flour they all sat at the bottom. A much more enjoyable blueberry coffee cake came from Taste of home and was called Blueberry crunch cake. That was a 5 star. I've made that one several times and never disappointed."
