Blueberries ‘N’ Cheese Coffee Cake Recipe

Blueberries ‘N’ Cheese Coffee Cake

2 Tbsp. butter, softened

¾ cup sugar

1 egg

2 egg whites

¼ cup unsweetened applesauce

2 Tbsp. canola oil

1 tsp. grated lemon peel

2 ¼ cups flour, divided

1 ¼ tsp. baking powder

1 tsp. salt

½ tsp. baking soda

1 cup buttermilk

2 cups fresh or frozen blueberries

1 package (8 oz.) reduced-fat cream cheese, diced

Topping:   ¼ cup flour

¼ cup sugar

1 tsp. grated lemon peel

2 Tbsp. cold butter

In a large bowl, beat the butter and sugar until crumbly.  Beat in the egg, egg whites, applesauce, oil and lemon peel.  Combine 2 cups flour, baking powder, salt and baking soda; add to the sugar mixture alternately with buttermilk, beating well after each addition.

In a bowl, toss blueberries with remaining flour; fold into batter along with cream cheese.  Pour into a 13×9 inch baking dish coated with cooking spray.

For topping, combine the flour, sugar and lemon peel in a bowl; cut in butter until mixture is crumbly.  Sprinkle over butter.

Bake at 375 F. for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean.  Cool completely on a wire rack.          15 servings
