Blueberry Lemon Bundt Cake

Lemon Blueberry CakeI once tried to make a lemon bundt cake that had a lemon syrup you were supposed to pour over the cake. I decided to do it before it was unmolded from the pan and the results were one of my most disastrous baking messes of all time. I was left with a giant and sticky cake that refused to come out of the pan. Needless to say, I love lemon bundt cakes, but have been wary of trying them ever since. I had a giant package of blueberries from Costco that Miss F wasn't eating fast enough, so into the cake they went. This cake is heavenly. The perfect mix of sweetness from the blueberries and tartness from the lemon.
Blueberry-Lemon Bundt Cake

2 ½ cups all-purpose flour, plus 1 teaspoon for blueberries and zest
2 teaspoons baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature
1 cup packed light-brown sugar
1 cup granulated sugar
4 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup sour cream
2 cups blueberries
2 tablespoons grated lemon zest
juice of one lemon
Nonstick cooking spray, for pan

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a bowl, whisk 2 ½ cups flour with baking powder and salt; set aside.

In a mixing bowl, cream butter and sugars on high speed until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating until incorporated. Beat in vanilla and lemon juice. Reduce speed to low; add flour mixture in three additions, alternating with two additions of sour cream.

In a bowl, toss blueberries and zest with remaining teaspoon flour; gently fold into batter. Coat a 12-cup nonstick Bundt pan with cooking spray. For best results, coat the inside of the Bundt pan with cooking spray just before filling it with the batter to prevent it from pooling in the bottom. Spread batter in prepared pan.

Bake cake on bottom rack of oven until a toothpick inserted into center of cake comes out clean, 60 to 70 minutes. Cool in pan 20 minutes. Invert onto a rack; cool completely, top side up. Dust with confectioners’ sugar before serving.
