Martha has a recipe for blackberry pound cake in July/Aug Everyday Food, but notes you can swap blueberries for blackberries, which is what I did. This was easy to whip up – basically a pound cake with blueberry puree swirled through it. I subbed out whole wheat pastry flour for half of the regular flour and I added some cinnamon (about 1/2 tsp) to the blueberry puree. Everyone in my house gobbled this up almost instantly. It was sweet and moist and very good.
1/2 c butter
6 oz berries
1 1/4 c plus 2 tbsp sugar
1 1/2 c flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/2 c sour cream
Puree berries with 2 tbsp sugar. Cream butter and sugar. Add eggs and vanilla, mix. Add dry ingredients alternating with sour cream. Put half the batter in a loaf pan and top with 1/2 cup puree. Put in rest of batter and cover with remaining puree. Bake at 350 for 1 hour 15 min.
Note Martha says to only put 1/2 cup puree in the middle of the batter. I think this might be a typo and she meant to say put half of the puree in the middle. I did it as the recipe said and there wasn’t much in the middle and tons on top. I would definitely put half in the middle to even things out.
Thanks for this great idea for dinner tonight. And, blueberry season will be early this year. Looks delicious!
I must admit we had some for dinner, but then we also ate it for breakfast since it’s close to being a coffee cake! And hey, it has fruit in it.
I am so going to make this this week!! Perfect for Sunday morning breakfast. Tx!
I think I need to come camp out in your house for a bit, to be able to truly eat – instead of read about with lust – all these goodies!
A sour cream pound cake with berries is right up my alley. Will have to bookmark this one for when berries are in season Down Under.
I want to make this but with whole wheat flour and agave for the sweetener. Would you be willing to do a test run of this healthier version? I’ll try to remember to report back once I make it that way (just short the agave a bit because it’s sweeter than sugar).
wow! looks amazing. the picture of the whole loaf is making my mouth water.
This looks like a great pound cake!
Mmmm – this sounds like a winner!
Putting the ingredients on my shopping list now. My son LOVES blueberry pound cake. He’s going to be PSYCHED when I make this for him.
Yum. I think I’ll mix blueberries and blackberries. I’ve been looking for a recipe like this, thanks!
That sounds like a great combo
