Whenever summer rolls around I start thinking about all things blueberry. I was thinking about what yummy blueberry item I could bake and remembered this coffee cake recipe that I always loved. For some reason I haven’t made it in years, and I dug out the food stained recipe and decided to share it on my blog. Of course I decided to bake it on a hot humid day, but the smells in my house alone are worth it. Not to mention the taste, yum.
If you haven’t watched Schitt’s Creek, please at least watch the scene where they have to fold cheese into a recipe. That way you will understand why I laugh every time I make a recipe where you have to fold something in, like the blueberries in this coffee cake. Hopefully you will also think it’s funny, I’m sure you will.
Ok, so here’s how to make this easy and insanely delicious coffee cake.
1 cup butter, softened
2 cups sugar
1 cup sour cream
1 tsp. vanilla
1 5/8 cups flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
1 cup blueberries, fresh or frozen
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tsp. cinnamon
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour a bundt pan, set aside.
In a small mixing bowl combine flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
In a large mixing bowl, or stand mixer, combine softened butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
Add the eggs one at a time, and mix well.
Stir in the sour cream and vanilla.
Add the flour mixture and mix well.
Fold in the blueberries.
In another small mixing bowl combine brown sugar and cinnamon.
Spoon half of the mixture into the greased and floured bundt pan. Sprinkle half of the brown sugar mixture on top. Top with the rest of the batter, then the remaining brown sugar mixture.
With a knife swirl the batter so the brown sugar mixture gets spread throughout the batter. You don’t need to stir it all together, you just want to swirl it in.
This was such a challenge for me to get this photo. I can’t do anything with my left hand, including swirling apparently. I then swirled with my right hand and tried to take a photo with my left, hence the blurry hand.
Bake for 55-60 minutes or until a knife inserted comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack before turning onto a plate.
Dust with confectioner’s sugar before serving.
You will not believe how good this is! Enjoy!
