Blueberry Sour Cream Cake

Screen shot 2014-01-02 at 3.31.38 PMI made this cake during the summer and forgot to post it.  One of my family friends said it was the best cake she had ever eaten.  Personally, I would rather eat chocolate cake than blueberry cake, but whatever works!  This cake is not extremely sweet, but it still shines through with flavor.

Ingredients:

  • ¾ cup butter
  • 1 ½ cup sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 ½ teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 3 cups of cake flour
  • 1 ½ teaspoons baking powder
  • ¾ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 ½  cups sour cream
  • 2 cups fresh blueberries

Directions:

  1. Pre-heat Oven to 350 degrees F
  2. In a large bowl cream together butter and sugar.
  3. Add eggs one at a time.
  4. Add vanilla.
  5. Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a separate bowl.
  6. Combine flour mixture and egg mixture mixing on medium.
  7. Fold in the sour cream.
  8. Fold in the blueberries.
  9. Bake for about an hour or until cake is firm and golden brown.

The sour cream is especially important because it gives the cake an airy creamy texture.

Enjoy!
