Classic Blueberry Sour Cream Pound Cake
If you’re a blueberry lover, this delicious Classic Blueberry Sour Cream Pound Cake is for you. It’s a moist, dense, buttery pound cake packed with plump, juicy blueberries. When blueberries are not on hand or are in-season why not use frozen Blueberries? Frozen fruits & veggies are picked and packaged when in season.
Living in upstate New York, we get to enjoy picking and eating fresh blueberries. That is one of our kids’ favorite pastime. My little Emily could pick a bush clean in a matter of 10 minutes. We call her the “pick-o-nator”. You can always tell when we had a day outside picking, hands and faces are covered. Such FUN!!
This Classic Blueberry Sour Cream Pound Cake just melts in your mouth and is full of refreshing, delicious flavor. My family could not stop raving about it. In fact….we got away with eating it for breakfast. Desserts can be breakfast too! Right? Well, it was a very special morning for us.
In case you are in need of a new tube pan, here is the one I used for this recipe. It is one of my favorite baking pans. It cleans up nice, and I have had mine for a long, long time.
Let’s Get Baking
It is a really easy cake to make, and it doesn’t require any fancy ingredients. Just your normal baking staples that you probably already have in the pantry. And the cake is baked in a bundt pan and lightly dusted with powdered sugar before serving, so it looks way fancier than it really is.
How To Make Blueberry Pound Cake
First, you will want to preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Then spray tube pan with vegetable spray and set aside.
While your oven temperature is rising, get out a medium-size bowl. Combine flour, salt, baking soda, and baking powder. Mix until incorporated.
In a separate bowl using a stand mixer, cream butter, vanilla, and sugar. Mix for 2 minutes until fluffy.
Once, combined scrape down sides and add in eggs. Mix for another 2 minutes. Do not over mix.
Once well incorporate, add in your sour cream. Mix again until sour cream is no longer visible. Try not to over mix. You don’t want the protein in the eggs to break down. Otherwise, your cake will not rise as well.
Using spatula add in dry ingredients in batches to wet ingredients while mixing at low speed.
Fresh Blueberries Verse Frozen
Please keep in mind you can certainly choose to use frozen blueberries instead of fresh. Your batter will end up having a blue tinge to it if using frozen. It will nonetheless, your blueberry sour cream pound cake will taste exactly the same.
Now it is time to hand mix in those blueberries. They are fragile. I prefer to keep them whole if I can.
Transfer batter to prepared tube pan. Bake until golden brown. Using a tester insert in the center comes out clean. Bake for 60 minutes.
I do recommend allowing the cake to cool before serving. As it will be very hot and could break apart.
Option Lemon Glaze Recipe
1 cup powdered sugar
3 – 4 tbsp freshly squeeze lemon juice
In a bowl, stir the powdered sugar with the lemon juice until smooth and of pouring consistency. Add more lemon juice or powdered sugar if needed. Pour the glaze over the top of the cake, allowing it to drip down the sides. Let the glaze dry before covering.
