In a small bowl combine both sugars, apple pie spice, butter, and flour. Mix thoroughly, it will look like wet sand. Set aside.This will be the streusel part of the cake
Meanwhile cream the butter and white sugar in an electric mixer fitted with a paddle attachment until light and fluffy. Add eggs one at a time until completely incorporated. Add the vanilla, lemon zest and yogurt and combine until blended.
In a separate bowl combine flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Add the flour mixture to the wet mixture on a low setting, just enough to moisten. Fold in berries. Spoon into pan and spread evenly. Sprinkle stuesel on top and bake for 40-50 minutes or until a tester comes out clean.
