We have another virtual baby show today! The longer I blog, the more wonderful women I meet. Each blogger brings something unique and different to the table. Cathy from Lemon Tree Dwelling makes the tastiest looking desserts, savory appetizers and fun DIY projects. My recent favorites are her Orange Creamsicle Circus Animal Cookies and Skittles Rainbow Fudge.

I am a believer that the best thing about parties is the food. I am a total taster. I need to have a little bite of everything. So the decision to make this Lemon Blueberry Bundt Cake for Cathy’s baby shower was not taken lightly! Just about all of my bundt cakes have streusel, so does that make it a coffee cake? I don’t know you decide.

And if you love the lemon-blueberry flavor combo, definitely check out my Lemon Blueberry Layer Cake!

This cake is the perfect springtime treat. There is a bold lemon flavor and plenty of juicy blueberries. I decided that I needed to keep this cake on the lighter side and dust it with powdered sugar instead of a glaze. I think this was the right decision. I mean, we are all looking to save a few calories before bikini season right?

The great thing about this cake is that the fruit can be substituted for raspberries or blackberries! This recipe is built from my grandmother’s sour cream coffee cake. The sour cream helps keeps this cake extra moist. It is a similar recipe to what I did for my Apple Pie Coffee Cake. I just made this last night to bring to an event this week. I have a serious weakness for coffee cake!

Ingredients

For the Cake:

  • 8 oz Blueberries, rinsed ( 2 packages)
  • 1/4 C Flour
  • 1 C Unsalted butter
  • 1 3/4 C + 2 tbsp Sugar
  • 1/4 C Light brown sugar
  • 2 Large eggs
  • 1 tsp Pure vanilla extract
  • 1 C Sour cream
  • Zest of two lemons
  • Juice of one lemon
  • 2 C Flour, sifted
  • 1 tsp Baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp Salt

For the Streusel:

  • 1/2 C Unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 C Flour
  • 3/4 C Sugar
  • 1 tsp Cinnamon

Instructions

For the Cake:

  1. Preheat oven to 350° F. Grease and flour a bundt pan.
  2. Rinse and dry blueberries. Coat blueberries with 1/4 C flour by mixing with a spoon.
  3. Butter should be at room temperature or slightly firmer, not melted. Combine sugars with softened butter. Beat on medium speed until butter and sugar are well combined, light, and fluffy.
  4. Add eggs, one at a time, beating each egg into the butter and sugar one at a time.
  5. After mixing both eggs, add vanilla, sour cream, lemon zest, and lemon juice. Beat on medium speed until well combined.
  6. In a separate bowl, Sift flour and then measure out 2 cups. Add salt and baking powder. Stir to combine. Slowly add the flour mixture to the batter and mix on low speed until just combined. The batter will be thick.
  7. Fold blueberries into batter.

For the Streusel:

  1. Melt butter in the microwave, for about 30 seconds.
  2. Combine all dry ingredients in a medium-sized bowl. Pour melted butter over dry ingredients and stir until well mixed. This mixture will be clumpy.

To Assemble:

  1. Pour the batter into the pan. Cover the bottom with streusel.
  2. Bake at 350° F for 50-55 minutes. The bottom of the cake will be slightly brown. Use a long toothpick or knife to stick in the middle of the cake. If it comes out clean, the cake is done.
  3. Set on a cooling rack for twenty minutes.
  4. Place a plate, cutting board, or other flat surface; over the cake and hold it together. Turn the cake over and gently pat the sides of the pan until the cake comes loose. Allow to cool for another 15-20 minutes.

    just made this cake. can’t wait to try it out 🙂
    one thing wrong with the recipe is, that it doesn’t tell you where to add the lemon zest or lemon juice.
    I added it just before the blueberries went into the batter
