Sour Cream Blueberry Bundt Cake

Super moist Sour Cream Blueberry Bundt Cake

I made this Sour Cream Blueberry Bundt Cake over the weekend and couldn’t wait to share the recipe! It’s CRAZY moist, soft and loaded with fresh blueberries!

My kids are crazy about blueberry desserts. Blueberry donuts? Gimme. Blueberry Muffins? Can’t make them fast enough. Blueberry Cake? Gone in minutes.

But a bowl of fresh blueberries? No thank you, please.

I mean, I guess I kinda-sorta get it. Of course, we would all prefer a gorgeous blueberry cake. But I will eat fresh blueberries, like any normal person would. My kids, however, claim they don’t like them.

The world continues to baffle me.

Anyhow, like I said, they basically fought over the last piece of this cake, which lasted approximately 12 minutes in my house. They’re savages.

The cake is super simple to make.

And yes, you can use fresh or frozen blueberries. Fresh aren’t in season yet here in NJ, so I used frozen, but I thawed them and gave them a good rinse.

I like to rinse them because frozen blueberries tend to turn you batter completely blue if you don’t rinse off the extra blue juice 🙂

Fold the berries into the simple batter. This has sour cream to add extra moistness…hence the name…

Always Spray Your Bundt Pan with Non-Stick Spray

If you are using baking spray to grease your bundt pan, I have found that if I spray the pan right before adding the batter I have better results when I remove the cake from the pan. I am not sure the reason for this, but if I spray the pan before I make the batter and set it aside I have had problems with the cake sticking. Spraying right before I add the batter has given me the most consistent results at removing the cake.

You could even add in a tablespoon of lemon zest into the batter and make this a Lemon Blueberry Bundt Cake!

I made this Sour Cream Blueberry Bundt Cake over the weekend and couldn’t wait to share the recipe! It’s CRAZY moist, soft and loaded with fresh blueberries!


  • 1 cup butter, room temperature
  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 2/3 cups flour
  • 1 1/2 cups blueberries (fresh or frozen and thawed)


  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 12 tablespoons milk


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. In the bowl of your stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, mix the butter and sugar together on medium speed for 2 minutes, until light and fluffy. Add in eggs, vanilla, sour cream, salt, and baking powder, and mix for an additional minute until smooth, scraping the sides of the bowl as necessary.
  3. Turn mixer to low and mix until the flour until just combined.
  4. Fold in the blueberries.
  5. Coat a 9-10 inch bundt pan with baking spray. Spread the cake batter in the pan and bake for 45-55 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  6. Allow the cake to cool in the pan for 15 minutes and then invert the pan onto a wire rack to cool completely.


  1. In a medium bowl whisk together the butter, powdered sugar, vanilla, and 1 tablespoon of milk. Add an additional tablespoon of milk if you would like a thinner icing.
  2. Drizzle the icing on the cake when mostly cooled.


I find that if I am using baking spray to grease my bundt pan, it works best if I spray it just before I fill the pan with batter.

Store airtight for up to 3 days.

Hi! I’m Shelly and I’m an addict. Of the buttercream sort. I started this site a few years ago as a way to justify my sugary, buttery obsession with desserts. It has worked out well for me so far, because as it turns out you guys all love sugary, buttery desserts too! It feels good to know you're not alone, doesn’t it?

I just made this cake. Fresh blueberries. Followed the recipe exactly. 350 for 55 minutes. Absolutely perfect. Sooo moist. Next time I’ll use a lemon butter cream frosting. Gave half to the neighbor. 5 star review. Yes, I’d make it again.

When I baked this cake it had a strong taste of baking powder and egg. As well it was difficult to get fully cooked through. Was wondering if you have any tip or solution

Delicious flavor! Not quite the texture I was hoping for….it was almost a mushy moist after a full hour in the oven, but it was fully cooked so all was well. A great flavor and it was the easiest recipe I could find, which is a great thing!

Well, it does taste great. Moist and delicious. However when taking it out of the pan it stuck to the bottom and it fell apart into a big jumbled mess. I sprayed the pan and cooled for 15 minutes. I would be afraid to make this again. Had to eat it in a bowl.

I don’t see where you add the flour in this recipe?

Wonderful cake. So pretty and delicious. Will be making another one probably tomorrow for the fourth weekend. Everyone loved it. This cake is like a butter cake where it looks like it falls but it is just the amount of butter in it which intensifies the flavors. Try it. You’ll love it.

Hi – like many others have commented, my cake fell too…. But next time, I’ll be more careful to rinse and fully drain the frozen blueberries and may add less sour cream and maybe add one more egg. Tastes wonderful though. Glad I didn’t make it for a special occasion. We have our own blueberries bushes and I’ll try again when the fresh berries are in season.

I made this last night, and the cake turned out perfect! I used fresh frozen Hammonton NJ Blue Bucks, they are a very large blue! my glaze looks lumpy, separated looking? I used my big mixer with the whipping attachment…maybe should have used the hand mixer?
Does anyone have a fave hand mixer that starts off super slow so the powdered sugar doesn’t fly all over the place!??
We are quarantined and have been baking every few days. The family loves this cake!

Kitchenaid hand mixers have a low setting that is actually low. Spend a few extra bucks for Kitchenaid and you won’t be disappointed.

A few things…I live in Salt Lake City-higher elevation, so I had to add a few tablespoons more of flour. You MUST toss the blueberries in flour before adding to the batter, otherwise they will sink to bottom of cake- the flour you toss them in should count toward the amount for the batter. I used half the sour cream, half the sugar and 3/4 lb of butter and it was moist and great. I baked it for 43 minutes. My cake didn’t fall. I used the mixer for the entire recipe.

My mother made this not too long ago and I loved it. I want to make it but I do not have a bunt cake pan. Is there an alternative to the bunt pan?

April 5, 2020 4:07 pm

It tastes so great! Has anyone solved the falling cake situation – it looked so tiny when I finally flipped it? I bake all the time (even more now that we’re quarantined) so I know what I’m doing in the kitchen. I folded, didn’t beat things for too long, etc. My toothpick came out clean after 55 minutes but it looked pretty raw when we cut into it. I’m keeping the recipe to try again with fresh, maybe that will make a difference?

That just happened to me last night, too. I bake all the time and I have never had that happen. I’m glad it wasn’t just me!! 🙂
I’m going to try again today. It still tasted great, but didn’t look good enough to share with neighbors.

I made this last night with frozen blueberries. The recipe was upper easy (I added 3 eggs versus 2). My husband couldn’t wait to cut into it. Super moist and delicious. Will definitely make it again.

Excellent. Made it yesterday afternoon with frozen blueberries and had it for dessert last night and breakfast this morning. It came out perfectly; I did bake it about 10 minutes longer than indicated, and the cake came out golden brown. It is very rich and dense, but we liked it that way. It did not rise much, therefore, I did not experience any falling of the cake like others did. Will definitely make it again.

I have a question about the blueberry sour cream cake, I’ve made it two times so it’s obvious I like the taste, however, I’m not sure about the heaviness or consistency. Both times it was thick or heavy. You’re pictures sorta show the heaviness but want you to verify. Also it shrunk in height during cooling, am I doing something wrong. I won’t serve the cake because of these issues. I’d appreciate your response/advice
