Units Scale


  • 1 1lb. Yellow Cake Mix
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 stick unsalted butter, melted


  • 8 oz. cream cheese, softened
  • 2 large eggs, room temperature
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1/2 c. fresh lemon juice
  • 2 c. fresh blueberries
  • 2 c. powdered sugar
  • 1 stick unsalted butter, melted


  • 1/2 c. brown sugar
  • 1/4 c. sugar
  • 4 tbsp. butter, melted
  • 3/4 c. flour


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees, spray a 9X13 rectangular baking dish with baking spray, and set aside.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, pour the cake mix, add the egg and the melted butter, and stir with a wooden spoon. Once well mixed, pat into the bottom of the 9X13 rectangular pan. Set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, cream the cream cheese until smooth and add in the eggs one at a time, creaming into the cream cheese after adding into the bowl. Add the vanilla extract, lemon juice, powdered sugar, and melted butter. Fold in the blueberries. Pour the cream cheese mixture on top of the cake mix.
  4. For the topping, mix the brown and white sugar and stir in the butter. Add the flour to the mix and stir. The topping will become very crumbly. Turn to wax or parchment paper and let it sit for about 10-15 minutes so the crumbs can dry out a bit. 
  5. Sprinkle the crumbs as the top layer of the filling (  didn’t use all the crumbs for my taste). Bake in the oven for 35-40 minutes or until the middle is set and golden brown. Allow to cool and cut into squares and dust with powdered sugar.
