Blueberry Pound Cake




This is a family favorite and perfect for the summer! I make many of these every year at the 4th of July for our family reunion.....it is great for dessert or breakfast! So since 4th of July is this weekend, make one for your family too!!!!



Blueberry Pound Cake


1 c. + 2 T butter, softened
2 1/4 c sugar, divided
4 eggs (I use egg beaters)
1 tsp. vanilla
3 c. flour, divided
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
2 c. fresh blueberries, well, drained


Grease 10" tube pan or bundt pan with 2 T butter and coat with 1/4 c. sugar; set aside.
In a mixer, cream butter and sugar, beating well. Add eggs one at a time, beating after each. Add vanilla and mix well. Combine 2 & 3/4 c. flour, baking powder and salt; add to mixture, beating until well blended. Dredge blueberries in remaining 1/4 c. flour. Fold into batter & pour into prepared pan. Bake at 325 degrees for 1 hour & 10 minutes. Cool in pan for 10 minutes on wire rack. Turn out of pan and serve warm or keep covered.
