How to make Blueberry Cheesecake Crumb Cake

The biscuit and crumb base is first created by mixing together flour, baking powder, sugar, eggs, and vanilla extract. The mixture is whisked until it resembles crumbs. Half of this mixture is added to the baking tin, and the other half will be used on top for the crumble.

Now you can prepare the creamy filling. Mascarpone, cream cheese, powdered sugar, corn starch, eggs, and vanilla are whisked until the mixture is smooth and lump-free. The filling is poured over the crumb base. Add blueberries and the remaining crumbs on top and bake until golden. Drizzle with the prepared glaze and enjoy!

Tips

If you want it to taste more lemony, increase the amount of lemon zest in the filling.

For extra flavor, add a teaspoon of instant coffee (or ½ tsp of ground cinnamon) to the crumb base before whisking.

Make Blueberry Cream Cheese Crumb Cake bars by making the desserts in a rectangular baking tin and cutting it into squares after baking.

For a shortcut, you can use a cheesecake box mix for the filling.
