Blueberry Cream Cheese Coffee Cake

Have you guys been taking advantage of all the glorious blueberries that are in season right now? I need to make some time for a trip up to our local pick-your-own-blueberry place soon. We’ve also got our Chincoteague Blueberry Festival coming up in the next couple weeks. We always make a “girls trip” of it with my best friend and her daughter.

It’s not very big in terms of most folks idea of a festival, but there’s always lots of unique vendors and great blueberry-centric things to try. Not to mention a blueberry vendor from New Jersey that sells them by the box. I usually buy one and freeze half of the berries, and then we brew a blueberry beer with the other half. Good stuff!

So, this coffee cake. Tender, moist cake is studded with juicy fresh blueberries and chunks of cream cheese throughout, then topped with a delicious crumble topping that is the signature of any good coffee cake. I’d imagine it would also be wonderful with raspberries or strawberries as well. Perfect for any breakfast or brunch get together – as well as a sweet treat for after dinner. Have a great weekend, everyone!

    We took the boys to a pick-your-own blueberry place when we were down in Alabama and they loved it! I wish we had a place like that here. I love blueberries but man, the prices are killing me!

    Definitely making this next time I buy some!

    Blueberries are big in my part of the world also. I have been eating them like crazy while we are lucky enough to have them. I make a lot of coffee cakes, so this fits right in with my life style. I pinned it.

    Blueberry beer? That sounds amazing! The blueberries are abundant on the Eastern Shore right now, and I am loving them. This coffee cake looks incredible. What a great way to enjoy blueberries! The blackberries are late this year, but when they are ripe I think they would be delicious in this cake, too!

    Made for breakfast this morning. I was a little hesitant about the cream cheese being cubed and stirred in. However, it looks and tastes like my mom’s beloved blueberry buckle only a little better with moist cream cheese surprises! Thanks for another winner! Congrats again on moving back to the island. 🙂

    I prefer heavier topping, more like coffee cake streusel, and used the following:

    1 1/2 cups flour
    2/3 cup packed light brown sugar
    1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
    ¼ teaspoon salt
    ½ cup unsalted butter
    1 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract.
