Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F
  2. Butter a 9 inch spring form pan and line the bottom of the pan with parchment paper. Set aside.
  3. For streusel topping: In a large bowl, mix together the flour, sugar, and ground cinnamon. Cut in the butter with a pastry blender or fork until it resembles coarse crumbs. Set aside.
  4. For cream cheese filling: Beat the cream cheese until creamy and smooth. Add the rest of the filling ingredients and beat until very smooth. Set aside.
  5. For cake batter: In a separate bowl whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
  6. In another large bowl, cream the butter. Add the sugar and beat until light and fluffy. Add the egg and vanilla and beat until incorporated.
  7. Add the flour mixture, alternately with the milk, and beat only until combined.
  8. Spread the batter onto the bottom, and slightly up the sides, of the prepared pan. Next, spread the cream cheese filling over the cake batter.
  9. Scatter the fresh berries over the filling and top with the streusel.
  10. Bake for about 60 to 70 minutes or until the streusel is golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean.
  11. Remove from oven and place on a wire rack to cool slightly.
  12. Serve warm or at room temperature.

This was a good coffee cake. I'll probably make it again next year after I go blackberry picking. September 08, 2008

This was perfecct recipe for me as I had alot of blackberrys to use up and I love cream cheese in my cakes. I followed the recipe exactly except for adding a cpl tablespoons of fresh orange juice and orange zest to the batter and adding some shredded coconut to the streusel topping which I doubled. I baked it in a bundt pan and for me it was the perfect dessert. Just a little sweet and the berries were nice and tart and the cream cheese filling made it really moist in the middle and streusel topping was nice and cruncy. Which actually became the crust for me. I will definately use this recipe again and it's so versatile you can use any fruit!
