Cake Pan

  • Melt a tablespoon of butter and brush the bottom and sides of a 9-inch springform pan. Dust the sides and bottoms with flour. Line the bottom of the pan with parchment paper.

Streusel Topping

  • For topping, melt 6 tablespoons of butter in a sauce pan. In a bowl whisk together the flour, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, baking powder and salt. Add the melted butter to the flour mixture and mix together with a spoon until it's crumbly. Set aside.

Cake

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  • For the cake, place the all-purpose flour, kosher salt, baking powder and ground ginger in a medium bowl and whisk together.
  • Place the granulated sugar, brown sugar, butter, and vanilla in the bowl of a stand the mixer and beat on medium high until fluffy, 3-4 minutes. Scrape the bottom and sides of the bowl.
  • Add the eggs, one at a time, beating after each addition until well combined. Add the vanilla and mix. Scrape down the sides and bottom of the bowl.
  • Add 1/3 of the flour mixture and beat on low speed until flour is just mixed in. Do not over mix. Add half of the buttermilk, beat until combined. Add half of the remaining flour and mix on low until just combined. Add the remaining buttermilk, mix on low and then add the remaining flour and mix on low until combined. Scrape the bottom and the sides of the bowl and mix on low speed for another 10-20 seconds to make sure everything is well combined.
  • Place the batter in the pan and use an offset spatula to spread the batter evenly around the pan. Spread the streusel and fresh blueberries over the surface of the batter.
  • Place pan in the oven and bake for 45-50 minutes. The temperature of the cake in the center should be about 202 degrees F. Remove from the oven and cool in the pan for 15 minutes. Remove the sides of the springform pan and let the cake completely cool before topping it with the lemon yogurt glaze

Lemon Yogurt Glaze

  • Sift the powdered sugar. Add the yogurt and lemon juice and stir until the glaze is smooth. Drizzle the glaze over the top of the cake.

Storage

  • The cake is good at room temperature for up to 2 days in a covered container. After 2 days keep it in the refrigerator covered with plastic wrap so it doesn't dry out.
  • This cake also freezes well. Cut the cake into individual servings. Wrap each one in two layers of plastic wrap. Thaw at room temperature for a couple of hours before eating.

Notes

If you don’t have a scale, measure the flour by spooning the flour into the measuring cup and using a knife to level the flour.
For the ingredients that need to be at room temperature that means they are between 65 -68°F.
