Ingredients

  • 2 cups fresh or frozen blueberries
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour, divided
  • 1/2 cup reduced-fat butter, softened
  • 4 ounces reduced-fat cream cheese, cubed
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 large egg white
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup (6 ounces) lemon yogurt
  • GLAZE:
  • 1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 4 teaspoons lemon juice

Directions

In a small bowl, combine blueberries and 2 tablespoons flour; set aside. In a large bowl, cream the butter, cream cheese, sugar and vanilla until light and fluffy. Add eggs and egg white, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Combine the baking soda, salt and remaining flour; add to creamed mixture alternately with yogurt. Fold in reserved blueberries.
Transfer to a 10-in. fluted tube pan coated with cooking spray. Bake at 350° for 65-70 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack. In a small bowl, whisk glaze ingredients until smooth. Drizzle over warm cake. Yield: 16 servings.
Editor's Note: If using frozen blueberries, do not thaw. This recipe was tested with Land O'Lakes light stick butter.
