Blackberry Cream Cheese Coffee Cake

My way of making healthy Blackberries into something very unhealthy.   Although, I am sure you could use fake sugar, non fat cream cheese and sugar free jelly.

Blackberry Cream Cheese Coffee Cake
Cake & Crumb Topping
2 cups all-purpose flour
¾ cups sugar
½ cup cold butter, cut into small pieces
½ tsp. baking soda
½ tsp. baking powder
¼ tsp. salt
1 cup sour cream
1 large egg
1 tsp. vanilla

Cream Cheese Filling
1-8 oz. brick cream cheese, softened
¼ cup sugar
1 large egg
Black Berry Filling
1 cup fresh Black Berries
½ cup Black Berry Jelly

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Line an 8 inch spring form pan with parchment paper. 

Prepare the Cake and topping:  Combine the flour sugar and butter with a pastry knife or in a food processor.   Work until it looks like cornmeal.   Measure out ¾ cups of the mixture and set aside to use as crumb topping.   To the remaining mixture add the baking soda, baking powder and salt. In a separate bowl mix together the sour cream, egg and the vanilla.   Pour into the flour mixture and mix just until it combined.  Batter will be thick and lumpy.   Pour into prepared spring form pan.   

Next make the cream cheese filling by beating cream cheese until soft, stir in the sugar and then finally the egg.  Pour this mixture over the cake batter.

Warm the jelly in the microwave oven just until warm.  Stir in the fresh berries.  Pour over the cream cheese mixture.

Lastly, top the entire cake with the remaining ¾ cup of the topping.   Place in oven and bake for 55 minutes.   Cool on the rack at least 15-20 minutes before removing from pan.
