Blueberries and Cream Cheese Coffee Cake

“This recipe is one I picked out of the Joy of Blueberries book and modified a little bit. After going blueberry picking, I wanted a breakfast dish that I could use FRESH blueberries in. You may also use frozen blueberries slightly thawed. This was a big hit with our family. Hope you enjoy!”
