For the Cake:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup sour cream

For the Cream Cheese Filling:

  • 8 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

For the Berry Layer:

  • 2 cups fresh berries (such as blueberries, raspberries, or strawberries), washed and dried
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour

For the Streusel Topping:

  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, chilled and cut into small pieces


  1. Preheat the Oven and Prepare the Pan:
  • Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease and flour a 9-inch round springform pan or line it with parchment paper.
  1. Make the Cake Batter:
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl, cream together the softened butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
  • Beat in the eggs, one at a time, followed by the vanilla extract.
  • Gradually add the dry flour mixture to the wet ingredients, alternating with the sour cream, beginning and ending with the dry ingredients. Mix until just combined. Set aside.
  1. Prepare the Cream Cheese Filling:
  • In a separate mixing bowl, beat together the softened cream cheese, sugar, egg, and vanilla extract until smooth and creamy. Set aside.
  1. Prepare the Berry Layer:
  • In another bowl, gently toss the fresh berries with sugar and flour until evenly coated. Set aside.
  1. Assemble the Cake:
  • Spread half of the cake batter into the prepared springform pan, smoothing it out evenly.
  • Spread the cream cheese filling over the cake batter layer.
  • Scatter the berry mixture evenly over the cream cheese layer.
  • Top with the remaining cake batter, spreading it carefully to cover the berries and filling.
  1. Make the Streusel Topping:
  • In a small bowl, combine the flour, sugar, and chilled butter pieces. Use a fork or pastry cutter to blend the mixture until crumbly.
  1. Add the Streusel Topping:
  • Sprinkle the streusel topping over the top of the cake batter layer.
  1. Bake:
  • Place the assembled cake in the preheated oven and bake for 50-60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean and the top is golden brown.
  1. Cool and Serve:
  • Allow the cake to cool in the pan for about 15 minutes before removing the sides of the springform pan.
  • Let the cake cool completely on a wire rack before slicing and serving.
