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 gorgeous 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.

MY OTHER RECIPES

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…

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.

Sour Cream Blueberry Bundt Cake

  • Author: Cookies & Cups
  • Yield: serves 10 1x

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.

Helpful tip… out of sour cream?

      Instead of a bundt pan, a baking dish or cake pan can be used as a replacement. A 10-ounce bundt pan is the equivalent of one 9 x 13-inch baking dish.

    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

    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.

  3. I tried this recipe and it came out amazing , hubby couldn’t get enough. Was super moist and I threw some lemon zest in the batter..yummy ! Thanks for sharing your recipe ?

      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.

    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. Thank you Shelly. You never disappoint!

    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 your recipes with great results!! Keep them coming!

    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 🙂
