The Recipe How-To

Step 1: Preheat and Prepare the Pan

Before starting the recipe, it is crucial to preheat the oven to 350°F. Grease a 10-inch bundt pan with baking spray or butter, then sprinkle some flour onto it. Use your hands to coat the entire surface of the pan evenly with flour and dump out any excess.

Step 2: Combine Wet Ingredients

In a large bowl, use an electric mixer to cream together 1 cup softened butter, 2 cups white sugar, and 2 large eggs until smooth. Add in 1 cup sour cream and 1 teaspoon vanilla extract, then continue mixing until all ingredients are well combined.

Step 3: Add in Dry Ingredients

Combine the dry ingredients in a separate bowl. Mix together 4 cups all-purpose flour, 2 teaspoons baking powder, and ½ teaspoon salt, and add to your wet mixture while it is still blending. Mix until just combined.

Step 4: Make Blueberry Mixture

In another bowl, prepare the blueberry mixture by mixing together two cups of fresh or frozen blueberries, three tablespoons of flour, and three tablespoons of white sugar.

Step 5: Create Cinnamon Streusel Topping

In a separate bowl, mix together 1 cup finely chopped pecans, 1 cup brown sugar, and 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon for the topping.

Step 6: Layer Your Ingredients

Pour half of the coffee cake batter into your greased bundt pan. Sprinkle half of the blueberry mixture over the batter. Then, add a layer of cinnamon streusel topping over the blueberries.

Pour in remaining coffee cake batter, followed by more blueberries and the final layer of cinnamon streusel on top.

Step 7: Bake and Cool

Place your blueberry sour cream coffee cake into the preheated oven for about 80-90 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean.

Let the cake cool in the pan for at least 10 minutes before transferring onto a plate or serving dish.

Step 8: Serve and Enjoy

Once it is completely cooled, lightly dust with confectioners’ sugar and serve. This cake will make an excellent addition to your brunch buffet or a dessert table for any special occasion. Enjoy the decadent blueberry sour cream coffee cake recipe with your loved ones!

If you’re looking to switch up this blueberry sour cream coffee cake recipe, fear not! There are plenty of substitutions and variations to make this cake entirely your own. Here are some ideas to get you started:

1. Swap out the blueberries: While blueberries are undoubtedly the star of this cake, you can use frozen or fresh raspberries, blackberries, or diced strawberries instead. Just be aware that different fruits may change the baking time, so keep an eye on your cake as it bakes.

2. Use a different nut: Pecans give this coffee cake a fantastic crunch, but feel free to substitute them with walnuts or almonds or leave the nuts out altogether if you prefer.

3. Make it gluten-free: Substitute all-purpose flour with a gluten-free flour blend for a tasty gluten-free option.

4. Add some spices: Boost the flavors of this humble coffee cake by including other spices like nutmeg or ginger in addition to cinnamon.

5. Turn up the decadence: Mix lemon zest into the batter before baking for a bright flare, add more blueberries and icing on top drizzled with confectioners’ sugar for something sweet.

6. Experiment with liquor: Are you serving adults? Try adding 1-2 tablespoons of your favorite liquor such as rum extract or whiskey into your sour cream mixture to bring out an extra flavor dimension into this coffee cake.

Whatever variation you go for, be sure to let us know how it goes and if you have any other suggestions in mind!

Before I delve into this section of the blueberry sour cream coffee cake recipe, let me say that the thought of making it ahead or having any leftovers is simply preposterous! The aroma alone of this decadent coffee cake is enough to make one want to devour it in one sitting. However, I understand that there may be occasions where you need to make it ahead or have some leftover slices. Fear not, for I have some tips on how to store and reheat this tasty treat.

Firstly, if you plan on making this blueberry sour cream coffee cake ahead of time, you can bake it as instructed and then store it in an airtight container at room temperature for up to two days. Alternatively, if you want to enjoy this delicious cake later in the week, you can wrap it tightly in aluminum foil and freeze it for up to three months. When ready to serve, simply thaw the coffee cake overnight in the refrigerator and bring to room temperature before slicing.

If you find yourself with leftover slices of this heavenly creation, do not fret! The best way to store individual slices is by tightly wrapping them in plastic wrap or aluminum foil and then placing them in an airtight container. You can store them at room temperature for up to two days or freeze them for longer storage.

When reheating the blueberry sour cream coffee cake slices, be sure to remove any wrapping or foil and place them on a microwave-safe plate. Heat each slice for 15-20 seconds on high power until heated through. Alternatively, you can place the slices in a preheated oven set at 350°F (175°C) for 5-7 minutes. This will help restore the moistness of the cake while also making it warm.

Always dust some confectioners’ sugar on top just before serving for added sweetness and garnish with some fresh blueberries if available. Trust me when I say that one slice will never be enough!

Tips for Perfect Results

As a seasoned barista and coffee cake connoisseur, I’ve grown familiar with the ins and outs of baking blueberry sour cream coffee cake for ultimate enjoyment. To ensure that your blueberry sour cream coffee cake is perfect in every aspect, I’ve compiled some tips that can help you achieve greatness when it comes to this cake recipe.

Firstly, make sure to measure ingredients accurately. You want an ideal balance of flavors and textures to produce a mouthwatering sensation. Too much salt can overpower the sweet and tart elements, while excessively sweet results may take away from the other flavors. Measure ingredients down to the gram, so keeping a digital kitchen scale can be incredibly valuable.

Secondly, do not overmix or undermix the batter. For those who have made cake recipes before, this might sound repetitive; However, this is one factor that intensely impacts baked goods’ end-product quality. If you overmix the batter, it will become dense and chewy, while undermixing will result in uneven baking, which ultimately leads to an undesirable outcome.

Thirdly, I recommend using fresh blueberries rather than frozen ones whenever possible. For one thing, fresh blueberries release juice differently than their frozen counterparts when baked. This small difference can greatly impact the density of your cake, so it’s best to stick with fresh ones if possible.

Lastly, do not skip the step of allowing your blueberry sour cream coffee cake cool before slicing and serving; this cooling process allows the sugary liquid in the coffee cake to thicken and solidify slightly. If you don’t give it time to firm up slightly, it may fall apart when sliced and transferred from pan to plate.

By following these simple tips and tricks, you are well on your way to producing a delicious blueberry sour cream coffee cake- silky smooth consistency matched with sweet blueberry-filled goodness!
