For the Cake:

  • 1 ½ cups all purpose flour
  • 1 ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 sticks of unsalted butter at room temperature
  • cup sugar
  • zest of 1 medium lemon
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs at room temperature
  • 1 ½ cups frozen cherries
  • 1 cup blueberries

For the Sugar Cookie Streusel:

  • ¾ cup all purpose flour
  • 6 tablespoon sugar
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 6 tablespoon unsalted butter cold and cut into pieces


  • 1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 10 inch springform pan with baking spray, or grease liberally with butter and dust with flour, shaking out the excess.
  • 2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder and salt.
  • 3. In the bowl of a stand mixer, beat the butter and sugar on medium speed until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Add in the lemon zest and vanilla.
  • 4. Beat in the eggs, one at a time until fully combined. Add in the flour mixture and mix until just combined. The batter will be very thick.
  • 5. Use a rubber spatula to fold in the cherries and blueberries by hand.
  • 6. Use the spatula to spread the batter into the prepared springform pan.
  • 7. In a medium bowl, whisk the flour, sugar and salt needed for the streusel topping.
  • 8. Add in the pieces of butter and bring together using a pastry cutter or two forks until the mixture resembles coarse sand.
  • 9. Spread the streusel over the batter.
  • 10. Bake for 55-60 minutes or until lightly golden and set in the center.
  • 11. Place on a wire cooling rack and run a butter knife around the edges of the cake so it won’t stick when you try to remove it.
  • 12. Allow to cool for 15 minutes, then release the latch on the springform pan. Continue cooling the cake for 1 hour. Slice and serve!
