I love this coffee cake. I often serve it to friends and family.—Shirley Wilder, Marietta, Georgia
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 35 min. YIELD:15 servings


  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1-1/4 cups sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon peel
  • 2-1/4 cups all-purpose flour, divided
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 cups fresh or frozen blueberries
  • 1 package (8 ounces) 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, cream butter and sugar. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in lemon peel. Combine 2 cups flour, baking powder and salt; add to the creamed mixture alternately with milk and water. In a bowl, toss blueberries with remaining flour; fold into batter along with cream cheese. Pour into a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking pan.
  • 2. For topping, combine the flour, sugar and lemon peel in a bowl; cut in butter until mixture is crumbly. Sprinkle over batter. Bake at 375° for 35-40 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.

"This is a delicious cake, however, I would leave out the chunks of cream cheeese. It's kind of gross biting into a chunk of plain old cream cheese. Maybe if it was flavored with sugar and vanilla it would be better. But I will just leave it out next time."

"My whole family loved this!! It was moist, flavorful, and easy. tip: it's much easier to dice cream cheese when it is real cold."

"This wasn't very good. It was dry and crumbly, and it had a metallic flavor. I wouldn't make it again."
