Bake with Bizzy - Blueberry-Pecan Sour Cream Coffee Cake



I have been baking and just could not find the time to post the results.  I have made and loved sour cream coffee cakes, for years and years.  I think, I made my first one, not too long, after I married Hubby.  Sour cream enhances the cake and the extra moisture only makes the texture better.


I decided on the filling, as usual, because I had about a cup of dried blueberries in a plastic container, looking lonely, next to the full containers of other nuts and berries.  I also had two containers of pecan opened (oops) so pecans and blueberries became the stars of the day.

Blueberry Pecan Sour Cream Coffee Cake 


Ingredients:


1 cup oil
2 cups sugar
2 eggs
1 cup sour cream
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
2 cups gluten-free flour mixture or all purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1 cup dried blueberries


Topping:
1/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 cup chopped pecans


Method:


Preheat oven 350 degrees.  Grease 2 8 inch round pans.


Beat oil and sugar.  Add eggs, sour cream and vanilla.  Beat until blended.
In another bowl, mix dry ingredients, flour, salt and baking powder.
Add to sour cream mixture and stir.  


Add dried blueberries and 1/2 cup chopped pecans.  Just mix to incorporate the nuts and berries.


Pour batter into two pans, dividing equally.  Top with combined sugar, cinnamon and pecans.


Back to last week, when there were many stars.  I will share a few.


Winnie at Something Sweet has this 5 layer cake which is a beauty.


Then, we  visit The Sweet Swiper who always has the very best sweets.  Look at these little raspberry marbled cheesecakes.



Then we have Whole Wheat Sugar Cookies from The Sweet Details


These should inspire you to get in that kitchen, if you are a baker, and turn on the oven.  If you are not a baker, you just might want to try these.  They all look delicious.   Linked to 21st Century Housewife   Cast Party Wednesday       Sweet Treat Thursdays
