Blueberry Cake

  • 3/4 cup (144g) white sugar
  • 1/4 cup + 2 tablespoons unsalted butter at room temperature
  • 2 large eggs at room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2/3 cup (154g) full fat honey vanilla Greek yogurt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 and 1/4 cups (160g) white flour
  • 1 cup (146g) blueberries + 1 tablespoon flour


  • 1/4 cup + 2 tablespoons light brown sugar, lightly packed
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 4 tablespoons cold unsalted butter, cut into cubes
  • 1/2 cup (66g) white all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt


  • 3 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 ounce cream cheese softened
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter softened (not melted)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract



  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Grease and flour and 9 x 9 pan.
  • In a large bowl, mix together the white sugar and butter until fluffy. Add in the eggs one at a time.
  • Mix in the extracts, lemon zest, lemon juice, and Greek yogurt.
  • In a separate bowl, combine the baking powder, baking soda, salt, and flour.
  • Combine wet and dry ingredients being careful to not over-mix.
  • In a separate small bowl, combine the blueberries and flour. Lightly stir the blueberries into the cake mixture.
  • Pour the mixture into the greased cake pan and set aside.


  • Beat all of the ingredients together until combined and crumbly.
  • Crumble evenly over the cake to form a very thick streusel layer.
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 45-50 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean when inserted.


  • Beat together all of the ingredients until smooth. If needed add a little bit of milk to get a thinner consistency.
  • Drizzle the glaze over the cooled cake.

  1. I never feel like I have the time or energy to make cinnamon rolls…but a blueberry cinnamon roll CAKE is something I could totally swing! It sounds amazing! And because it has fruit, it is definitely breakfast-worthy.

  2. You don’t even know how excited I get when I see the words cinnamon roll in one of your recipe titles, Chelsea! This cake looks so amazing… I would have it for breakfast, lunch, and dinner (and maybe even as a snack in between), ha! Most definitely pinning this!

    1. I made this Sunday and it was SO SO wonderful! Loved the blueberry, lemon and cinnamon flavors together. I did undercook it because I have an irrational fear of overcooking baked goods ๐Ÿ˜€ haha so no pictures for instagram… But had to tell you I tried it and loved it ๐Ÿ˜‰ Thanks Chelsea!

  3. Definitely acceptable for breakfast and dessert. ๐Ÿ™‚ This cake sounds heavenly! I love lemon and blueberry together. So perfect for spring time! And on my gosh that streusel topping. Like the inside of a cinnamon roll times 10 is the best thing I’ve heard all day. ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. You are nailing the fruity cakes and pies! If I had to choose, it would be this one. The chewy rolls covered in frosting and bursting with blueberries is irresistible!

  5. I was just telling my sister that I wanted to make a blueberry coffee cake and you nailed it! Ok, so I call it coffee cake and you call it cinnamon roll cake and quite frankly I love your name better. ๐Ÿ™‚ As long as it has blueberries, cake, and sugary cinnamony goodness then that’s all I care about. ๐Ÿ˜‰ My sis will go crazy when I show her your recipe. Definitely must make this asap!!! Yummy yummy…oh and I’d happily eat this for anytime of the day. ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. I’d eat this for breakfast, lunch or dessert – it looks amazing! Blueberries and cinnamon roll in cake form with a thick streusel topping? Totally made my heart sing ๐Ÿ™‚ Pinning and hope you have a great weekend Chelsea!

    1. You are so sweet thank you Kelly! Thanks for pinning and I hope you’ve enjoyed your weekend with your precious little ones!

  7. I know i’ve already posted a comment on this recipe but I made this Sunday!! SUPER good. Just loved the blueberry, lemon and cinamon combo! Fabulous…even without the icing ๐Ÿ˜‰ I would have posted a picture of instagram, Chelsea. But I slightly undercooked it and it wasn’t nearly as pretty as your pictures. haha But had

  8. 5 stars
    I made this cake yesterday and brought it to work with me today. I got a TON of compliments including, “this is just stupid good” (which is the highest form of compliment from this young lady!) Thank you for sharing such a great recipe!!

  9. Hi thereโ€ฆjust found your blog while looking for some tasty “breakfast cake”โ€ฆ This cake is really good and I made it twice, but it doesn’t rise, and it doesn’t look “fluffy” like yoursโ€ฆso I am not sure what I am doing wrongโ€ฆtwice I done it and the same results.

    1. Hi DeeDee! Glad to hear you’ve liked the flavor of this cake! A few thoughts – is it possible your baking soda or baking powder are old? They may no longer be effective and causing a less fluffy cake. Other thoughts – you may be over-stirring the mixture making it more dense OR using too much flour (packing in too much flour in the measuring cups). Hope these ideas are helpful!

    1. I wouldn’t recommend making this the day before baking; recipes with baking powder do need to bake relatively soon after being prepared.
