  • In a separate bowl cream together shortening and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs and vanilla. Beat well.
  • Add dry ingredients alternating with milk, stirring gently until just combined. Scrape into greased pan and bake for 10-15 minutes.
  • In the meantime, make the filling and crumb topping.
  • Filling:
    Eat together all the filling ingredients (except blueberries) until smooth and combined.
  • Topping:
    Combine flour, brown sugar, almonds and baking powder. Cut in butter until mixture resembes coarse crumbs.
  • Gently spread cheese filling over the partially baked cake. Sprinkle evenly with blueberries followed by crumb topping.
  • Press the reserved blueberries into the crumbs on top decoratively. Return to the oven to bake another 25-30 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.
  • You might need to tent the cake with foil if the top is browning too quickly. Cool fully before serving. Store in refrigerator.
