Blueberry Vanilla Bundt Cake
My family is a huge fan of desserts, especially ones that include berries! This is a recipe my mom and I found in an old cook book and we customized it to our liking. We have made it for TONS of events for years and there has never been a complaint, in fact people still ask for it by name. Here’s what you’ll need:
2.5 cups of flour
1 teaspoon of baking powder
½ teaspoon of salt
1 cup (2 sticks of butter) at room temperature
1 ¾ cup of sugar
1/8 cup of powdered sugar (set aside for the top of the cake)
1 tablespoon of vanilla extract
¼ cup of milk
2 cups of berries (you can do frozen or fresh, and any kind of berry. We usually use frozen mixed or blue berries)
Preheat your oven to 325 degrees.
Combine the flour, baking powder, and salt in one bowl.
In another bowl, beat the butter until it is fluffy then add in the sugar. Keep beating the sugar and butter mixture. Then, add in the eggs one at a time and continue to beat or mix. Once done, add in the vanilla extract and mix a little more.
Once all of this is added together and mixed well, take turns mixing in a little bit of the flour mixture then a little bit of milk. Alternate this until everything is nice and mixed up.
Finally, add in the berries. Do not over mix the berries. Mix them in until they are evenly through the cake batter.
Grease a bundt pan with nonstick spray and evenly pour the batter into the pan. Use the back of a spoon to smooth out the top.
Bake for about 60 minutes, could be up to 15 minutes more depending on your oven. When you can stick a knife in the middle and it comes out clean, your cake is done!
When you take it out of the oven, wait until it is TOTALLY cooled to flip it over onto a plate. Not waiting will result in half the top of the cake to stick to the pan. And you’ll have to try to put it back together like a very delicious puzzle! (Check out my picture below- that is what happened). This will not affect the deliciousness of this cake but just the appearance.
Once you have flipped it over, sprinkle some of the powdered sugar on top. This cake is so moist, delicious, and relatively easy for as complicated as it looks. People will love it and ask you to make it for every event you have! And, there are berries in it so it’s a portion of fruit, right?
