  1. Using a handheld or stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, beat the butter and ¾ cup of granulated sugar together on high speed until creamy and combined for about 2 minutes.

  2. At medium-high speed, add 1 egg at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in the vanilla extract and sour cream. Scrape down the sides and up the bottom of the bowl with a rubber spatula as needed.

  3. Add the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Turn the mixer on low speed and beat until completely combined. Using a rubber spatula or wooden spoon, fold in the blackberries.

  1. Combine the brown sugar, flour, and cinnamon together in a medium bowl. Cut in the chilled butter with a pastry blender or two forks until the mixture resembles pea sized crumbs. Sprinkle evenly over cream cheese layer.

  2. Bake the cake for 60 to 65 minutes or until it no longer jiggles in the center. A toothpick inserted in the center should come out mostly clean.

  3. Allow the cake to cool completely before slicing and serving.
