TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. Bake: 30 min. YIELD:15 servings


  • 2 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon peel
  • 2-1/4 cups all-purpose flour, divided
  • 1-1/4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 2 cups fresh or frozen blueberries
  • 1 package (8 ounces) reduced-fat cream cheese, diced
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon peel
  • 2 tablespoons cold butter


  • 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.
