I made this for “snack day” at the office. Made no changes. Absolutely wonderful coffee cake. I was a little concerned because the batter was so thick and I really couldn’t swirl the streusel in as much as just push it down a little bit. Beautiful recipe and everyone at the office is raving about it.
Words used to describe this cake included, “wonderful” and “divine”. Many thanks to dmcarm. Addendum: I made this for Thanksgiving and froze it. As wonderful as this cake is, it didn’t freeze well. The texture after thawing was too moist and it just wasn’t as good as fresh. It was torture having it in the freezer anyway.
Blueberry Sour Cream Coffee Cake
Prep 20 m
Cook 1 h
Ready In 1 h 20 m
- 1 cup butter, softened
- 2 cups white sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 cup sour cream
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 5/8 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/2 cup chopped pecans
- 1 tablespoon confectioners’ sugar for dusting
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour a 9 inch Bundt pan.
In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the sour cream and vanilla. Combine the flour, baking powder, and salt; stir into the batter just until blended. Fold in blueberries.
Spoon half of the batter into the prepared pan. In a small bowl, stir together the brown sugar, cinnamon and pecans. Sprinkle half of this mixture over the batter in the pan. Spoon remaining batter over the top, and then sprinkle the remaining pecan mixture over. Use a knife or thin spatula to swirl the sugar layer into the cake.
Bake for 55 to 60 minutes in the preheated oven, or until a knife inserted into the crown of the cake comes out clean.
Cool in the pan over a wire rack. Invert onto a serving plate, and tap firmly to remove from the pan. Dust with confectioners’ sugar just before serving.
