Blueberry Bundt Cake

Image

I love making bundt cakes because they ALWAYS look beautiful. You do not need to spend time frosting, and you don’t need to stress out that its going to be lopsided; its guaranteed to come out looking like a masterpiece. This blueberry bundt cake is super moist and very easy to make. The pop of color from the blueberry makes it extra beautiful and delicious. I cannot wait to serve this for breakfast or drop it off to a friend as a sweet surprise.

2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour, plus 1 teaspoon for blueberries and zest

2 teaspoons baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature

1 cup packed light-brown sugar

1 cup granulated sugar

4 large eggs

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 cup sour cream

2 cups blueberries

Nonstick cooking spray, for pan

Confectioners’ sugar, for dusting (optional)

7. Coat a 12-cup nonstick Bundt pan with cooking spray. If you do not have spray thoroughly THOROUGHLY butter and then flour. If you are not prepared to be thorough with this step just walk away. Bundt cake pans are so intricate that you cannot afford to leave any room for the cake to stick! So make sure its FULLY coated!

  1. I like the cake! Great job with it and getting a nice background set up to look great with it! It can be hard to find those at least around our place. 😀 I will have to get a cake pan like that and try a cake in there myself! 🙂
