The following ingredients are affiliate links on Amazon because they may be a bit hard to find in your normal store. I wanted you to be able to see exactly which things we are using.
Granulated Sugar – That is really just a fancy way of saying regular sugar. 🙂 We especially love Domino Premium Sugar here at 3 Boys and a Dog.
Brown Sugar – I always go with light and typically just buy the store brand. But, I have used Domino and love it.
Flour – Any all-purpose flour will work perfectly. Here at Miller Manor, we typically reach for Martha White’s flour, but as I said, “any will do”.
Reminder, not all ingredients in the Blueberry Sour Cream Coffee Cake Recipe are linked above, just the ones that may be a bit difficult to find or that you might be unsure of what to look for.
While this is not a blueberry coffee cake with cake mix, you know I am all about easy. Simply replace the dry ingredients of the main cake with a box of white cake mix. So, that would be the flour, baking powder baking soda, and granulated sugar that would all be replaced by the boxed cake mix.
Must Have Resources:
When making coffee cakes at home, you really need to have the following Amazon affiliate tools on hand.
Mixer: Because you need to thoroughly cream together the ingredients, I highly recommend a stand mixer. I included the link to the one I have because I am in love with it.
Measuring Cups: I think my 2 cup measuring cup is my most favorite, but I hope you also have a set of measuring cups that can be packed and/or leveled.
Mixing Bowls: The linked glass bowl set from Pyrex is the best investment I ever made into my kitchen. These glass bowls with lids are perfect for mixing and storing.
Bundt Pan: The fun thing about Bundt pans is that they came in so many different designs. I love how they make your cake so very pretty.
Make it a Meal:
While this coffee cake would be perfect all by itself for a sweet treat, it also makes the perfect dish to build an entire breakfast or brunch meal plan around. It is sweet, but not too sweet, and that makes it the perfect breakfast treat.
Main Dish: This Tater Tot Casserole is the perfect main dish for your breakfast or brunch. Plus, it is savory, so it pairs very well with this coffee cake.
Side: Don’t overthink breakfast! Add a side dish of Fruit Salad to round out this complete meal.
Starch Side: These Southern Style Grits will pair so nicely for breakfast or brunch. You can even have them if you are not Southern, It will be ok, I promise. LOL!
Refreshing Drink: Obviously you need juice, coffee, milk, or hot chocolate!
Note: while this recipe calls for fresh blueberries, you could certain replace them with canned or frozen blueberries for a super easy, favorite cake, any time of the year!
Just remember that canned blueberries are typically in a thick syrup. That will change the calories in this recipe.
If using frozen blueberries, use without thawing to avoid discoloring the batter – I mean unless you want it a pretty color.

- ½ cup butter
- ¾ cup granulated sugar
- ¼ cup brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 2 eggs
- 1 cup sour cream
- 3 cups flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 ½ cups fresh blueberries divided
- 5 tablespoons salted butter melted
- ¾ cup brown sugar
- 1 ½ teaspoons cinnamon
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Cream butter and sugars. Add in vanilla, eggs and sour cream and mix until smooth.
Mix in flour, baking soda and baking powder.
Prepare bundt pan by spraying with non-stick cooking spray. Place half the cake batter in the pan and pat down along the center, making a dent to place filling into.
Mix streusel filling and spread out into the indented batter. Top with ½ of the blueberries.
Add the remaining batter to the pan and press down, spreading out evenly over the first layer of batter. Top with last remaining ½ of blueberries.
Bake in 350 degree oven for 45-50 minutes. Top with a vanilla or cream cheese frosting or glaze.
Blueberry Coffee Cake Baking Tips and Substitutions:
You could sprinkle the top with a little brown sugar cinnamon for some extra yumminess!
Be sure to drop your eggs one at a time into a separate bowl. This keeps any broken shells from getting into your recipe.
You only want to cool it for 10-15 minutes in the bundt pan. After that, remove it to a wire rack so it can cool completely before adding the drizzle topping.
When baking, it is very important that you preheat oven before putting the baking pan into it. This allows the coffee cake to cook evenly, at the right temperature, and for the correct amount of time.
You could grease and flour your bundt pan, but it is really just as effective to spray it with non-stick cooking spray.
Always check your cake before removing them from the oven. When a toothpick, inserted in the center comes out clean, you know it is done.
For a beautiful presentation, sift about 1/2 a cup of confectioners sugar around and over the cake before drizzling with the cream cheese frosting or glaze.
When you add in the sour cream and vanilla, make sure you mix it well. Either one could ruin the cake if it isn’t well mixed.
