Making Streusel Topping & Filling:
- Using a pastry blender or your fingers, combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix until crumbly.
- If you over mix it, it won’t crumble and be mushy.
- Set-aside the topping/filling until ready to use.
Making the Cake:
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Combine flours and baking powder and set aside.
- Using a hand held mixer or a stand mixer, cream butter and sugars.
- Add eggs and vanilla. Scrape down the sides while blending the butter mixture with the egg mixture.
- Slowly alternate adding flour and sour cream to egg/sugar mixture.
- Do not over mix batter. The batter will be thick.
- Draw a circle of parchment paper that will fit inside of your springform pan.
- Spray the inside and the sides of the pan with coconut oil. Place the cut-out parchment paper on the bottom of the pan.
- Place half of the cake batter into the parchment lined springform pan.
- Add half of the streusel topping. If you’re using fresh blueberries, add those over the streusel now.
- Spread the rest of cake batter over the streusel topping. Use a wet spatula for easier spreading.
- Add remainder of streusel to top of the cake and rest of blueberries.
- Bake for 1 hour in a 350-degree oven until cake feels firm to the touch and no longer jiggles.
- Let the cake cool completely before removing it from your pan.
- Once the cake is cool, run a butter knife around the edges of the pan.
- Open the clip to the spring form pan and remove the sides. Place the cake on a platter.
- Serve warm or at room temperature.
