Crumb Topping:

  • 1/2 cup butter melted
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla


  • 1/4 cup melted butter
  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup plain yogurt or sour cream
  • Juice and zest from one lemon
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Cream Cheese filling:

  • 8 oz cream cheese 1 package
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • zest from one lemon
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a 9-10" Springform pan (mine is 9.5") with parchment paper (you can do this by laying it on the base and closing the sides around it with the paper sticking out the bottom), and spray with non-stick spray.
  • Crumb Topping:In a medium bowl, combine melted butter, flour, sugar and vanilla until crumbly. Cover and set aside.
  • Cake:In a large bowl, whisk together butter, oil, sugar, eggs, vanilla, yogurt, lemon juice and zest.
  • Add flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt and stir just until combined. Set aside.
  • Cream Cheese filling:With an electric mixer, beat cream cheese, sugar, egg and lemon zest until smooth.
  • Assembly:Spread ⅔ of the cake batter into the bottom of the prepared pan.
  • Spread cream cheese filling in the center, making sure to stay away from the edge of the cake (leave ½-1" around the edge of the pan). Top with blueberries.
  • Top with remaining cake batter. Starting at the edge of the pan, spread the batter into the center as far as it will go. It doesn't matter if it covers all of the blueberries.
  • Top with all of the crumb topping. Yes, it's a lot. Yes, it's delicious.
  • Bake at 350 degrees F for 60-70 minutes, or until center is set and does not jiggle when moved. It's a very moist cake, so don't worry about baking so long -- you don't want an unbaked center!


*Coffee cake freezes extremely well, so this is an excellent option for making ahead to enjoy later!
