Blueberry Cream Cheese Pound Cake

During summer blueberries is really cheap and I freezes a lot of it so that I can use it anytime I want to. For today I bake a pound cake using some of it and this pound cake is soft, moist and not too sweet. This cake is great for entertaining or simply enjoys it with a pot of hot brewing coffee.

Ingredients:

1 cup/2 stick/226 grm butter
1 block/8 oz cream cheese (I used fat free cream cheese)
1 3/4 cup sugar
6 eggs
2 cups flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups blueberries + 1 tbsp flour (toss together)

1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degree F. Line and greased a 8" x 8" square pan or baking pan of your choice.
2. In a mixer beat butter, cream cheese and sugar until creamy and light. Add in eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add in vanilla.
3. In a mixing bowl, sift flour, baking powder and salt. Slow down the mixer and slowly add in the flour to the butter mixture. Mix well.
4. Lastly add in the blueberries and mix well. Pour batter into baking pan and bake for 1 hour or until golden brown. Cool for 10 min in the pan before remove the cake out of the pan.
5. Cool completely before serving.

Err...how did you get the shape as per the 2nd photo? It looks round rather than square.

Here the fresh blueberries is very expensive, what i can do is use the canned blueberries to subsitute it. Thanks for sharing.

Oh I liked! Yeah, why I never thought of freezing the blueberry when it was super cheap in summer.

Dawn said...

I froze a lot of blueberries this time around because I know I will want them in winter.
How did it taste using fat free cream cheese? I'm always shy about using that

Nice cake. I still can't find the fat free cream cheese over here in Ipoh :(

Fiber said...

For some reason, fall always makes me think of making pound cake. I was just thinking about it earlier today, so I think I'll have to give this recipe a try!

ABowlOfMush said...

Yum! I love things like all year round. Looks fab.

noobcook said...

great thinking to freeze the bb. I forgot to do that this year and now they are now much more expensive -_-

A cream cheese pound cake? Brilliant! I had 2 bad encounters with blueberries (they were very bland) and they ruined my cakes. So I have stayed away from them ever since. Am always envious of people who churn out beautiful blueberry cakes ;)

MamaFaMi said...

Just by reading the ingredients, I can actually 'taste' the 'yummy-ness' of the cake!

Little Inbox, you mean the 3rd pictures. I used a different kind of baking pan for that shape.

Sonia, can you find the frozen kind there? I think you might be able to get it from Cold Storage.

LCOM, I only start freezing them this season after paying over $5.00 for the frozen ones.

Dawn, the fat free cream cheese tasted as good :)

Shereen, ha ha don't worry sis. Simon will love you just as much even with an extra inch.

Elin, you can always use the full fat kind :)

Fiber, thanks for stopping by and hope you like this cake.

AbowlofMush, thank you.

Noobcook, remember to do it next season as it is always cheaper than buying the frozen ones.

Nurit, thanks for stopping by.

The little Teochew, try using the frozen kind. They are just as good.

Mamafami, ha ha..

Maria said...

Hi,

Just wanted to say that this cake is really yummy! I baked it today using strawberries instead of blueberries and I have to say, it is the best cake I have baked yet (not that I have baked a lot since I am an amateur)...Thanks once again!! Can't wait to try your other recipes...

ICook4Fun said...

Maria, thanks for trying out this cake. Yes hope you try out some other recipes here.

Hi there

Enjoyed your blog. Wonderful recipes and wonderful photos. I made a blueberry cake and all my berries sunk to the bottom. Why? is it because I didn't toss them in flour?

Thanks.

Thanks for the recipe, the cake is so yummy! But my blueberries always sunk at the bottom, what is it so?

Ling said...

Thanks for the great recipe, I have baked few times but my blueberries always sunk to the bottom although I have tossed them with flour, what is the reason?
