the best blueberry cake recipe

August 4, 2009 § 2 Comments

This is the best recipe I’ve found for anything blueberry. It’s an old Gourmet magazine recipe from 1984! I’ve tried dozens of different recipes as I have my own blueberry bushes so I’m always looking for ways to use them.

Blueberry cake

For the blueberry mixture

2 cups blueberries, 2/3 c sugar,  1/4 tsp cinnamon, 1 tsp grated lemon rind, 1/4 c fresh lemon juice, 1 Tbl flour, 3 Tbl unsalted butter, melted

For the batter

1 c flour, 1/2 c sugar, 1 tsp baking powder, 1/4 tsp salt, 2 large egg yolks, 1/4 c milk, 1 Tbl unsalted butter,melted

make the blueberry mixture: spread the blueberries in the bottom of a buttered 9-inch round cake pan. In a bowl blend the sugar, cinnamon, lemon rind, lemon juice and flour and sprinkle this over the blueberries. Drizzle the melted butter on top.

Make the batter: mix together the flour ( the original recipe says sift but I rarely do this) sugar, baking powder, salt, stir in the egg yolks, milk, and butter, stir until smooth. Drop onto the blueberry mixture and bake in a 425 degree oven for 20 minute, or until brown and bubbly.

Serve with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream.

    So glad you shared the recipe! We have made this recipe many times each year (save one) since ’84 and today I could not find that old, torn, and skinny 1984 Gourmet. You saved my day! The recipe is wonderful. It is not a “real” cake, more like a moist, tart, tarte. For a perfect blueberry pound cake I suggest the lemon blueberry cake that Gourmet published in 1990. It is tops. I seldom make it because it has so much butter.

      I make this every year too, at least 2 or 3 times! I’ll definitely try the blueberry pound cake, thanks for the tip!
