Sour Cream Blueberry Bundt Cake Is A Family Favorite!
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. They literally pick around them in a fruit salad, avoiding them at all costs.
But this Blueberry Cake…well they fought over the last piece.
Blueberry Cake Is Perfect For Breakfast, Brunch, or Dessert!
This cake is super simple to make, and it’s really a great option for holiday brunch, a weekend breakfast, or even a dessert. The sour cream in the cake makes it so moist, without giving it any “sour cream flavor”. I know a lot of you don’t prefer sour cream, so note that you don’t taste it at all!
Fresh Blueberries or Frozen?
Either! This cake is outstanding when blueberries are in season! But of course they aren’t in season all year long…and since in my world it’s always cake season I use frozen blueberries just as often as I use fresh.
If using frozen blueberries:
- Thaw your blueberries
- Rinse them.
- Pat them dry
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.
Also note THIS is the bundt pan that I have used for years and swear by it! Nothing ever sticks, as long as the pan is prepped!
Can You Use Other Fruit In This Cake?
Yes you can! I’ve found that berries work best. Here are a few ideas:
- Strawberries. Note – These can sometimes make the cake a little “mushy” as strawberries release a decent amount of moisture as they bake. But it will still be good!
What Can You Substitute For Sour Cream?
If you just don’t have sour cream on-hand, you can use a few substitutes in its place with a 1:1 ratio:
- Greek Yogurt
- Creme Fraiche
- Cottage Cheese

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
- 3/4 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
- 1–2 tablespoons milk
- Preheat oven to 350°F.
- 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.
- Turn mixer to low and mix until the flour until just combined.
- Fold in the blueberries.
- 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.
- Allow the cake to cool in the pan for 15 minutes and then invert the pan onto a wire rack to cool completely.
- 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.
- 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.

Easy a d delicious
I have made this cake 2-3 times now, each time thinking that it will turn out. And each time I was sad and dismayed to see a gummy goo ball plop out of my bundt form. I kept the recipe in my binder with dire warnings never ever to make this thing again. I should have known by the photo. It even looks gummy in what surely must be the best photo they could find.
I am really sorry you haven’t enjoyed the cake. It’s truly one of our favorites. It certainly hasn’t turned out gummy in all of our testing, and haven’t ever had that experience.
Made this last Christmas, turned out delicious!! Thought I’d treat them to it again
Today. Another success.
So glad you enjoyed!!
Did you make sure that you let it rest 15 minutes before flipping it? Also, I find that my recipes turn out much better if I grease the pan with real butter. I saw a suggestion in the comments to take a spoon of flour and coat the berries before putting them into the cake. I’ve done this in the past, and it does help. Sorry about your unfortunate flop, we all have those from time to time.
Love it!!! The cake was so delicious and so easy to make!
Just made this today using my new Nordicware Blossom Bundt. I was very nervous, thinking it wasn’t wet enough, it’ll stick to the pan. But it turned out perfectly. I am presenting it to my daughter (35) for her birthday so I haven’t cut and tasted it, but the batter was delicious and that’s always a good sign. Wish I could upload my photos.
So glad you enjoyed!!!
Omg. It’s the best moistest you will dance with pleasure when you taste it
I made this cake over the weekend. Added other extracts in addition to the vanilla. Cake was soooo moist and delicious!!
Are you sure about the flour quantity? I am just baking it and the bundt just does not won’t to dry inside 🙁
This is such a great recipe!! So moist, so flavorful, so tasty.
The BEST recipe! It’s SO good!
I’ve made this cake twice. My husband and I ate it in 3 days. Yummy
I added blackberries this time.
