Ingredient Notes

For the Blueberry Sour Cream Bundt Cake

  • Unsalted Butter: By using unsalted butter, we can control the amount of salt we add. This helps avoid an overly salty cake batter.
  • White Sugar
  • Eggs
  • Sour Cream: Sour cream makes a wonderfully moist cake.
  • Cake Flour: Cake flour is great for cakes like this one because it is finer. It also has less gluten. These two factors yield cakes with a perfect light and airy texture.    This leads for the perfect because it rises and allows for that dense flavor and texture. It can also be made with all purpose flour if you don't have cake flour in your pantry. The texture may be slightly different/heavier.
  • Baking Soda, Baking Powder, and Salt
  • Blueberries: If it's blueberry season, use those fresh blueberries!  However, you can also use frozen blueberries if fresh is not available.

For the Streusel: You don't have to add this layer, but I think it is a wonderful surprise in the middle.

  • Brown Sugar
  • Flour
  • Cinnamon
  • Salt
  • Cold Butter: Using cold butter gives us those beautiful and rich crumbs we all know and love.

For the Glaze: You can leave this off if you want, but I'll never say no to icing!

  • Powdered Sugar
  • Whole Milk

Frequently Asked Questions

Can You Make It Ahead?

You can make bundt cakes ahead of time. I would suggest no more than 2-3 days ahead. Be sure to store in an air tight container like cake stand, or a tupperware dish.

Can Your Freeze Coffee Cake?
Absolutely. If you have leftovers, simply add them to a freezer-safe container. It will remain delicious for up to 3 months. You can also freeze the cake itself right in the bundt pan. Be sure to cover with several layers of plastic wrap or tin foil, so no air can get in. Thaw at room temperature with the plastic wrap on. This will catch any condensation, and keep your cake from getting soggy.

How to Store Bundt Cakes:
Once cooled store in an airtight container for up to 5 days. This will keep it fresh and moist as long as possible.

    Made this yesterday and it's gone today. Lovely tender and moist cake. Because I like lemon, I added some finely grated lemon zest in with the blueberries and made a lemon gaze, but the cake is beautiful and easy. Something about using the bundt pan always impresses the family!

    PS used frozen "wild" blueberries with no problems. Just a little longer baking time.
