Fresh Blueberry Coffee Cake



  • 1 1/4 cups fresh blueberries
  • 1 1/3 cups granulated white sugar, divided
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla or almond extract
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans, optional


  • 3/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tablespoon warm water
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla or almond extract


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a tube pan with nonstick spray.

  5. Spoon half of the mixture into the prepared pan. Spoon half of the blueberry mixture into the pan. Add the remaining batter, then blueberries. Swirl with a knife gently. Sprinkle with pecans, if using.
  6. Bake 50 minutes. Let stand 5 minutes before removing from pan. Place on a serving dish.
