You are going to love the simplicity of this recipe. Dry ingredients, check! Wet ingredients, check! Mix and bake!




  1. Preheat oven to 350°F and place baking rack in the middle of the oven. Grease a 9×13-inch baking pan.
  2. In the bowl of your stand mixer or a large bowl, combine 4 cups all-purpose flour, 1 1/4 cups sugar, baking powder, and salt. Give it a quick mix.
  3. To the dry mix add milk, Greek yogurt, 1/2 cup of softened butter, lemon zest, eggs, and vanilla. Mix on low speed until combined and there are no visible clumps. The batter will be thick.
  4. Gently fold in blueberries with a spatula.
  5. Pour mixture into greased baking pan.
  6. In a small bowl, mix together the remaining 1/3 cup of flour and 1/2 cup of sugar.
  7. Cube cold butter and place inside the flour mixture. Create a fine crumble as you mix it with a fork or with your hands. Distribute crumble mixture over the batter.
  8. Bake for 50-65 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Remove from oven and allow cake to cool down to room temperature prior to serving.


You can make this with whole wheat flour but you must use whole wheat pastry flour. Otherwise, you will have a dense cake.
To prevent the blueberries from sinking to the bottom, give them a quick toss in 2 Tablespoons of flour. Coating them with flour will prevent them from sinking to the bottom.
Quick tip
: Measure all your dry and wet ingredients and place them in separate bowls. Refrigerate your wet ingredients (minus the butter, you should leave that out on the counter) and in the morning, all you have to do is quickly mix the batter, pour, sprinkle your topping and bake!
