Moist Lemon Cake With Sour Cream
If you want to make a beautiful cake but don’t want to assemble multiple layers, a bundt cake is a perfect happy medium. This lemon blueberry bundt cake is one of my favorite cakes of all time.
The texture is so moist, and the tangy lemon flavor combined with the blueberries is to die for. Whatever the occasion, this lemon blueberry cake recipe will be a definite crowd pleaser.
Baking involves a lot of science, and the way you combine ingredients is often very precise in order to achieve the right texture and taste. Here are a few tips that will ensure that your lemon blueberry bundt cake comes out tasting and looking amazing:
- Sift the flour: Sifting the flour helps give your cake a light and airy texture.
- Cream the butter & sugar: Creaming the butter and sugar is another important step that adds air into the batter to keep your cake light and fluffy.
- Don’t overmix your batter: Overmixing batter can cause your cake to be tough and chewy. Mix your batter just enough to ensure the ingredients are fully combined.
- Coat your blueberries in flour: To avoid having all your blueberries sink to the bottom of your cake, coat them in flour before you fold them into the batter. This will allow them to stay evenly distributed throughout your cake.
- Over grease your pan: Pulling your bundt cake out of the oven and flipping it over just to have the top stick to the pan is truly devastating. (Speaking from personal experience here.) Make sure you grease your pan EXTRA good. I recommend greasing it with crisco, making sure you cover the entire pan very well. Then, you’ll want to cover the inside with a layer of flour.

- Beat eggs into the butter mixture one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add lemon juice, zest, vanilla, and sour cream. Mix until fully combined.
- Mix in the flour mixture in 3 additions, alternating with the buttermilk. Mix just until ingredients are fully combined. Coat the blueberries in flour, and then gently fold them into the batter.
- Pour the batter into a greased bundt pan and bake for 50-55 minutes. Let cool for 10-15 minutes, then flip the pan over onto a cooling rack, removing your cake from the pan.
FOR THE GLAZE
- In a mixing bowl, whisk together the powdered sugar and lemon juice.
- When the cake is completely cool, pour the glaze on top, serve, and enjoy!
- Use a nonstick bundt pan
- Thoroughly grease and flour the pan to prevent sticking
- Use room temperature ingredients for best results
- Coat the cranberries in flour to help prevent sinking
- Be careful not to overmix the batter
This is a major winner! Great recipe and very good instructions. Learned something new with flouring the blueberries. Served it at a party and no less than four people asked for the recipe.
