    For the Crumb Mixture:

  • ⅔ cup packed light brown sugar
  • ¾ cup white whole wheat flour
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 5 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted & cooled
  • For the Cake:

  • 1 cup unbleached all-purpose flour
  • ¾ cup white whole wheat flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 1 cup fresh California Giant blueberries + 1 tablespoon flour (+ extra blueberries for topping, if desired)
  • 5 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
  • ⅔ cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs, room temperature
  • ½ cup plain greek yogurt, room temperature
  • ½ cup milk, room temperature
  • 1½ teaspoons vanilla extract
  • For the Glaze:

  • ¾ cup confectioners sugar
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice (or milk of choice)


      • Preheat oven to 375ºF. Line the bottom of an 8” springform pan with parchment paper and grease sides well; set aside.
      • Make crumb mixture, set aside.
      • In a medium bowl combine all-purpose flour, white whole wheat flour, baking powder, cinnamon and salt; set aside.
      • In a small bowl toss blueberries with flour and set aside.
      • In a large bowl using an electric mixer, beat together softened butter and sugar on low speed, about 1 minute, until light and fluffy. Add in eggs, yogurt, milk and vanilla, mixing on medium-low speed until well combined. Add bowl of dry ingredients and gently stir a few times, then fold in blueberries and continue stirring until fully incorporated - batter will be thick.
      • Add ½ of the batter into the bottom of the lined springform pan, sprinkle with ½ of the crumb mixture, add remaining batter and press in remaining crumb mixture. Tip: using wet hands helps spread batter evenly into pan. Feel free to press in extra blueberries to the top of the cake before baking.
      • Bake for 35 minutes uncovered, then cover with foil and continue baking another 10-15 minutes, or until inserted toothpick in the center comes out clean. Cake will likely take around 45-50 minutes total. Allow cake to cool in pan for 15 minutes before removing the side of the pan and cool completely. Tip: gently take a butter knife along the edge of the pan and cake to make sure it fully releases before releasing the spring.
      • Make glaze: In a small bowl combine confectioners sugar with lemon juice (or sub milk or cream) until liquid is fully absorbed and glaze forms. Drizzle over cooled cake and serve.
