For the Cake:

  • 2 ½ cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp kosher salt
  • ¾ cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 3 large eggs
  • 2 tsp almond extract
  • ⅔ cup milk

For the filling:

  • 2 packages (8 oz each) cream cheese, softened

  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • ¼ tsp kosher salt

  • 2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp almond extract

  1. To begin making the cake, in a large mixing bowl, beat flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt and butter together until crumbly. Add eggs, almond extract and milk, beat for about 2 minutes until fluffy and smooth.
  2. Pour cake batter evenly into bottoms of two 9inch round cake pans that have been sprayed with non-stick baking spray. Set aside.
  3. In a mixing bowl, beat cream cheese with sugar and egg for 3-4 minutes until smooth. Fold in blueberries. Pour evenly into the two cake pans over the cake batter. Set aside.

  3. This is AMAZING!! Kids and husband literally wait for it to come out of the oven and can’t wait for it to cool to try a piece. Highly recommend this recipe! Easy to make and delicious! 

  4. Super mega LOVING the huge ribbon of cream cheese swirled throughout this coffee cake! Blueberry coffee cake is awesome, but blueberry coffee cake with a cream cheese swirl is even better!!

  5. Mornings are not my friend…at all!!! Right now I am drooling over this crazy awesome looking cake and wondering why in the world I am doing another cleanse. Oh yeah, because my sweet tooth has sabotaged my jeans!

  7. Looks so light and yummy! Made of two things that I love, blueberries and cream cheese!! Thanks for sharing!

  8. I’m not a morning person one bit either. First thing is coffee, second is breakfast, third is workout, then I’m ok! This would make me very happy in the morning, however, and I love that it makes 2 cakes! Having one in the freezer for “emergencies” is a definite bonus! 🙂

  9. What if I crave both chocolate and the crumb cakey breakfast? I’m in trouble, huh?
    This looks great! The crumb plus the layers underneath…sheer heaven!

  10. I’m absolutely in love with this coffee cake. It is definitely going in my recipe collection.

  11. I love recipes that make two! It’s always a surprise when I open the freezer and I’ve forgotten that I have an extra treat in there:) Your coffee cake looks so yummy and I love the cream cheese in the middle; reminds me of a blueberry cream cheese Danish.

  12. Oh my gosh— just LOOK at that ribbon of cream cheese in there!!! *soon* And I’m totally with ya— carbs allllllll the way. All day, every day! 🙂

  13. I wish I was having this for breakfast! Pinned! 🙂 Love the crumble topping and that layer of cream cheese! Mmm!
