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.

Description:

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!


Ingredients:

  • 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)

Icing

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

Instructions:

  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.

Icing

  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.

Notes:

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?

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?

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

I tweaked this recipe and used coconut sugar, 1/2 c butter, 1/3 c coconut oil, sour cream mixed with 1/2 teaspoon baking soda, & King Arthur gluten free flour. I was really concerned about how moist and taste. It was excellent! And gluten free!

So happy with this recipe as it has less sugar than all other sour cream bundt cake recipes on line…..I am not a great baker but also after hearing all the folks that had cakes fall I decided to be patient and cook it long enough the full 50 minutes due to the heavy blueberries and sour cream. And I plan to leave it in the pan the entire 15 min. Which might keep it upright….. As my mom always said follow the recipe to a tee. Fingers crossed this may become our family favorite . I used my hand… Read more »

Looks great. I was going to make this but a little leery with all these posts about cake falling
I have an old aluminum bunds pan that I have used for years and always prepared the pan with crisco and flour. Can I still use this or try the spray ? Ty .

You can also toss the frozen berries with some flour to coat them after you have briefly rinsed them. It absorbs the juice and doesnt affect the cake.

This cake is amazing!! I have made this a half-dozen times and it is so good each and every time. When I make this for my husband to bring to work, his colleagues come running – literally running – to get a slice. I do add more blueberries and 2 drops of Young Living Lemon Essential Oil. You could add lemon zest instead of oil.

Super easy recipe! Moist & tasty! I didn’t put the glaze drizzle on it because I wanted it to be less sweet…Great little coffee cake in the morning.

I’ve made this 2 years in a row, And how do use Pillsbury gluten-free flour for my Step Mom…. It was obviously a little bit more dense but so amazingly delicious. It’s become the main stay on my Christmas menu! Cannot wait to try it again this weekend for myself with regular flour 🙂

My son made the cake a few days before I did, and his friends loved it! I made it last night, and, it, too, fell, right after I took it out of the oven. It looked very sad…I tried it this morning, but it was not up to my standards for taking it to work – threw it away, disappointed! I’m a pretty darn good baker, followed the recipe, etc. — so what is the cause for this unfortunate event? I see several others have had the same sad experience! I love following your blog and have made lots of… Read more »

A few lessons learned for me on this one. Be careful when you use dry spaghetti to check the doneness, it could break inside and you end up having to cut the cake in slices for serving so you can scavenge for the broken piece of pasta (alas, I found it). Also, you can NOT be to impatient to take it out of the pan, I was, and some parts just exploded. Last, mine took over an hour to bake. But, the end result….amazing. When the outside gets a bit brown and crispy..OMG. definitely adding this to my holiday list.… Read more »

Disappointed. Mine fell also. Won’t make it again.

I make this cake all the time, I have for many many years! The trick to prevent falling is — gently stir in the vanilla and sour cream. Quit with the mixer after creaming the butter and sugar. Instead, pick up a spatula and stir the remaining ingredients in a swirling figure 8 pattern.

Susan

Mine fell also & was raw inside. I am a seasoned baker and was disappointed in this recipe.

Mine fell before the 15 minutes also. Then I had a hard time getting it out of my bundt pan. I had to peice it together. I did everything accordingly. And waited to spray my pan right before I put the batter in. Very moist! And was very good dispite it sticking.

Sally

I am so disappointed! It came out gorgeous and it fell before the 15 minutes were up to take it out of the pan. The flavor is great but I guess it was too moist with the sour cream

My husband loved this, but if I made it again I would reduce the sugar to 1 cup and the butter to 1/2 cup. It was just a little too much!

Julia
