Gluten-Free Blueberry Cream Cheese Coffee Cake
This Gluten-Free Blueberry Cream Cheese Coffee Cake is something to talk about…delicious, intense indulgence in one very moist cake with a layer of cheesecake, buttery streusel and packed with fresh blueberries in between! The gluten-free coffee cake is outstanding!
There is nothing like a slice of coffee cake that is a party of flavours and textures. Seriously, starting the day with a slice of the most delicious moist gluten-free blueberry cream cheese coffee cake with your coffee is magical.
To keep this gluten-free coffee cake on the healthier side, I used heart-healthy olive oil in the cake layer, light cream cheese with fresh lemon juice to give the coffee cake a spark of freshness and plenty of fresh blueberries packed with antioxidants. As a sweetener, I used coconut sugar in moderation.
How to make the blueberry cream cheese coffee cake?
In this gluten-free coffee cake, the three layers are a moist cake, light lemon cheesecake layer and streusel topping. The fresh blueberries are packed in between, keeping everything moist and tasty.
The cake layer is super easy. Cream olive oil with coconut sugar, add eggs, vanilla, gluten-free flour and tapioca starch, baking powder and baking soda. And, keeping the cake extra moist, I added light sour cream.
I used softened light cream cheese, a little coconut sugar, fresh lemon juice, and an egg white for the cream cheese layer. Everything is mixed with an electric mixer. This layer takes only about a minute to whip up.
The buttery streusel is just a 1/4 cup of coconut sugar, gluten-free flour or my favourite, certified gluten-free oat flour and a few chunks of salted butter.
Now that you have the three mixings ready to layer the cake, using a springform pan, start with the cake layer, then half the blueberries, the cheesecake layer, remaining blueberries, and finish with streusel topping. Super easy and fun to make 🙂
allow extra time for baking,
Just to give you heads up, this gluten-free blueberry cream cheese coffee cake takes time to bake. With all the layers and fresh blueberries between the layers, you must give this cake time to bake slowly. But, well worth the wait, trust me on this!
This delicious gluten-free coffee cake has all the flavours we love—moist cake, light cream cheese filling, buttery streusel and sweet blueberries throughout bursting with flavour.
What I love about this blueberry cream cheese coffee cake is, you can serve it for breakfast, as a snack, or chilled as an after dinner dessert. Sometimes I add a dollop of vanilla bean ice cream to make this into an extra special gluten-free dessert. Enjoy!
