Blueberry breakfast cake

Blueberry breakfast cake is a delightful treat that combines the sweetness of blueberries with a moist and tender cake. Here’s a recipe to make a delicious blueberry breakfast cake:


  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 cups fresh or frozen blueberries
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour (for coating blueberries)
  • Powdered sugar, for dusting (optional)


  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease and flour a 9-inch round cake pan or line it with parchment paper.
  2. In a mixing bowl, cream together the softened butter and granulated sugar until light and fluffy.
  3. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in the vanilla extract.
  4. In a separate bowl, whisk together the 2 cups of all-purpose flour, baking powder, and salt.
  5. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the butter mixture, alternating with the milk, until well combined. Mix until the batter is smooth and no lumps remain.
  6. In a small bowl, toss the blueberries with 1 tablespoon of all-purpose flour until coated. This helps prevent the blueberries from sinking to the bottom of the cake during baking.
  7. Gently fold the floured blueberries into the cake batter until evenly distributed.
  8. Pour the batter into the prepared cake pan and spread it out evenly with a spatula.
  9. Bake in the preheated oven for 45-50 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean and the top is golden brown.
  10. Remove the cake from the oven and allow it to cool in the pan for 10 minutes.
  11. Carefully transfer the cake to a wire rack to cool completely.
  12. Once cooled, dust the top of the cake with powdered sugar, if desired.
  13. Slice and serve the blueberry breakfast cake as a delicious treat for breakfast or brunch.

This blueberry breakfast cake is best enjoyed fresh but can also be stored in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 2 days. Enjoy the burst of flavor from the juicy blueberries in every bite!
