Blueberry Coffeecake

July 23, 2012Teresa

This is the most spectacular Blueberry Coffeecake recipe you will ever find! 🙂 It has such a fine texture. It’s almost like a sour cream pound cake but it has blueberries mixed with brown sugar and cinnamon in the middle. This seems like an odd combination, but it really works well in this recipe. It’s topped off by a powdered sugar glaze. So scrumptious! Whenever I serve this to my guests, they can’t get enough of it! It’s great for breakfasts, brunches, and even snacks.

I found it in a magazine years ago (before 1984 when I put my recipes on computer). Unfortunately, I did not write down which magazine or who the author was. I have made this recipe umpteen times over the years. Without exception, I get rave reviews whenever I serve it. I have also tried it with cherries, blackberries, raspberries, peaches and strawberries. All versions turned out wonderfully.  I’ve used fresh or frozen blueberries in this recipe. Both work fine.

When I initially posted this recipe in July 2012, I had only been blogging for a month. I was in a hurry taking the pictures and only managed to snap a couple of them. I made this cake for our church’s VBS workers to snack on during the week of teaching Vacation Bible School.

I had so many things I was making each day. Unfortunately, I was more concerned with getting the food made then taking quality pictures. Plus, I took the pictures with a poor quality iPhone 3. It was all I had at the time.

I recently remade this scrumptious coffeecake recipe (December 2014). I updated the pictures so you can get a better idea of what this breakfast entree is supposed to turn out like.

If you’re looking for a sensational coffeecake to wow your family or guests, Blueberry Coffeecake will do it. Enjoy.

Grease your pan thoroughly. Don’t be skimpy on the shortening. Use a lot! Flour your pan. Try to make sure to sprinkle it around the tube portion too. 

Put a third of the cake batter in the bottom of the prepared bundt pan.

Bake at 350 for 1 hour 15 minutes to 1 hour 30 minutes. 

Insert a knife all the way to the bottom of the bundt pan to check for doneness. A toothpick won’t work on this kind of pan. The knife needs to come out clean. This recipe is supposed to cook in 60 minutes. I cooked it 1 hour and 30 minutes and still probably could have cooked it an additional 5 minutes.

Everyone who eats this lovely cake just raves over it!

Tips for using bundt pans:

  • Make sure you grease and flour your pan really well. I mean really slather on the Crisco shortening.
  • Don’t try to use cooking spray, most of the time it just won’t work and you will have a mess on you hands.
  • After greasing the pan, sprinkle flour on the tube center and then on the bottom of the bundt pan. Then rotate the pan several turns until the whole pan is coated well with flour.
  • When cooking a bundt cake, NEVER bake strictly by a time measurement!
  • Insert a table knife into the middle of the pan all the way to the bottom. If the knife comes out completely clean, the cake is done and not before. If you undercook a bundt cake it will fall out of the pan in clumps! This is what happened to me the first time I baked one. 🙁
  • Using a flexible or rubber type spatula loosen the outside edges of the cake all around its circumference pushing the flexible spatula underneath the whole to the bottom of the cake (inserting the spatula as far as it will go deep into the edge of the pan).
  • Many times cakes will come out easily by just doing that. If not, you may have to use your table knife and insert it around the tube portion of the bundt pan very carefully.
  • Place a plate on top of your bundt cake and invert the cake. Tap the bottom and sides carefully.
  • If you have greased and floured your pan well, and cooked the cake long enough it will usually come out without any problems. However if you have a streusel layer or fruit layer in the middle, sometimes those can stick and there may be some difficulty. (Try to keep those layers away from the edge).
  • I don’t think I’ve ever had a bundt cake cook in less than an hour and most of the time they take 1 hour 15 minutes to 1 hour and a half to fully cook (even though recipes say considerably less). Check your oven and test cake for doneness to avoid disasters.

Tips for making a powdered sugar glaze for bundt cakes or oblong cakes:

  • Avoid the temptation to add too much milk or water to the powdered sugar at the beginning. Start with half what the recipe calls for and work all that in before adding any more liquid.
  • The ratio is about 1 cup of powdered sugar to 1 to 2 tablespoons of milk or water. If you add too much liquid the icing becomes too thin and will absorb into the cake so that you cannot even see it.
  • Make a thick icing that will look fabulous in presentation by using the smallest amount of liquid necessary to get a thick icing. It shouldn’t be so thick that it globs on the spoon, but it shouldn’t be dripping like a faucet either.
  • Mine is thick and holds its shape. Allow the icing to dry about 15 minutes before covering cake with plastic wrap.

I also offer a post on Tips for Baking Cakes that you may find helpful.
