Nonnie’s Blueberry Buckle

01769da4f3a35ecc489263e9b6db7841dda8381106This blueberry cake is awesome! It’s like an an oversized, very moist blueberry muffin.  It seems like a ridiculous amount of blueberries when you are adding them to the cake batter, but the result is wonderful. So many blueberries!016f2a739371465ee69a8d8df9a86ec74279774010I’ve never used a tube pan for this kind of cake, so I was a little skeptical about how it would turn out. The result was awesome, but getting it out of the pan was challenging. It says to let cool for twenty minutes, at which point the pan is still quite hot, and then to run a knife along the edges to loosen, and attempt to remove the sides and the bottom. I ended up doing a bit of cake acrobatics, where I lifted the tube out, then carefully ran a knife under the bottom, flipped the whole thing onto a plate, then flipped it again onto a wire rack to cool.  It all came out beautifully though, after all that juggling of hot cake.

I would definitely make this again. Next time I plan on adding more lemon, and some nuts, but otherwise it’s a fabulous cake. 012f69bfa327c435b804aff303f2fe43d5f3846ef8

  1. I too was a little concerned about getting it out of the pan since I’d never used this kind of tube pan before. The tip in the book about putting a piece of parchment on the bottom works really well to help release it, and I used two flexible spatulas to lift it off the tube. Your cake is beautiful! 🙂
