Blueberry Coffee Cake

Years ago, at a Bible Study that a group of friends and I had each week, one of the girls made this recipe for our snack.  It was a huge hit!  I love to make it in the summer with lots of fresh blueberries but, we also get the craving in the middle of winter so I watch for blueberries and pick some up!

First, combine the sugars, butter,  and cream cheese in a mixer.  Mix until smooth.
 Than add egg whites and vanilla; mix until smooth.
 Add in all of the dry ingredients and mix.
 Finally, fold in the blueberries.
 Spread into a bundt pan or a 9 x 13 pan.  (A Bundt pan works well and is so pretty but . . I don't currently have one!) Sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar.
 The final product.  (I actually think I pulled it about 3 minutes early but it is still SOOO good!

Here's the Recipe:
