We really enjoyed this coffee cake! It has a great balance of sweet, tart, and tangy. If I were to do anything differently next time, it would be to incorporate the cream cheese with the wet ingredients instead of dicing it and throwing it into the batter. Otherwise, I loved it! Thanks!

I really like the little chunks of cream cheese in this!!! The cake part was nice and moist, and not too sweet. I didnt have any problems reading this recipe like was said in another review. Thanks for sharing!!

I really think that this recipe needs some work... It mentions in the ingredients to divide the butter and sugar, but never mentions how much to divide the flour. Does the 1/4 cup for the blueberries come from the 2 1/2 cups??? Also, how much is supposed to be saved for the topping. My end result looked nice, but did not have a great taste. It was not sweet, in fact more biscuit like, and the blueberries were very tart due to the lack of sugar. Sorry!
