There are times when you have guests popping in for no reason at all, such as your mother’s best friend may change the venue for their weekly bridge game to your place, and all you are left with is yesterday’s leftover pizza’s stale crusts. To make any event different and wholesome, let’s get to know about a sweet dish that is set to wow the hearts and taste buds of a little gathering within the earth of your home.
Directions and Tips
Today, let’s get in gear and clean our pots, molds, pans and cutlery for the Blueberry Sour Cream Coffee Cake. Since blueberries are supposed to be the highlight of this dish, make sure you have an assortment of blueberries beforehand. If your berries are frozen, the butter can take a little bit more time to bake than usual. For ingredients, suggests a cup of softened butter is mixed initially with 2 cups of white sugar in a bowl. Make sure the bowl is large enough to accommodate the ingredients to be followed.
After the butter and sugar are light enough, take two eggs and add them to the mixture one at a time followed by frequent stirrings. Take a teaspoon of vanilla extract and a cup of sour cream to the settling mixture and beat for the second last time. Lastly, add in some flour and a teaspoon of baking powder with a quarter teaspoon of salt and beat to get the final blended mixture. Add blueberries to the mixture with the flour so that they don’t settle to the bottom.
Take another bowl and add a cup of chopped pecans assisted by a teaspoon of ground cinnamon and brown sugar. Make four layers in the mold, one layer of each batter and bake for an hour in an already set oven for maximum results. Empty your cake onto your serving dish after making sure the crown of the cake hasn’t come undone. Sprinkle a little bit of confectioner’s sugar on the top of your Blueberry Sour Cream Coffee Cake and garnish your dish with blueberries all around the plate.
So, who’s having a slumber party this weekend or inviting their friends over for some brunch and tea? Not a bad dish if it takes an investment of an hour and a half, and some of the basic ingredients required for baking, eh?
