Blueberry Sour Cream and Coconut Cake

I wasn't going to post this cake, but Heather from Stuck on a Lunatic was showing her Mom my blog and her Mom saw a tweet I posted a couple of weeks ago about smelling blueberries baking. I had to post this for Heather and more importantly for Heather's Mom and I am also submitting this for BSI (Blogger Secret Ingredient). Reeni from Cinnamon Spice and Everything Nice is hosting this week.

First off, I need to apologize to whoever I got this recipe from. I have searched several blogs and can't for the life of me remember who gets credit for this recipe. Please let me know via comments or email and I will amend this post for your credit and please accept my apologies.

This recipe came from Bridget at Labella Cooks. Thanks for the shout out!

Let's get started on this cake...it's a perfect blend of coconut, blueberries and silky sweetness!



Toast 1/2 cup of shredded coconut. Heat your oven to 400 degrees, spread shredded coconut evenly on a foil lined pan. The toasting time varies from oven to oven. Check on it after 5 minutes and then go from there until the coconut is evenly toasted.
Once the coconut is toasted, lower the oven temperature to 350 degrees F.




In a large bowl, sift 2 cups of all-purpose flour, 2 teaspoons of baking powder, and add 3/4 of a cup of superfine sugar. i have to admit my ignorance, because I didn't know what superfine sugar is so I used powdered sugar.



In another bowl, combine 1 cup of sour cream, 2 large eggs, 1 teaspoon of lemon zest.




Combine wet ingredients with dry ingredients and fold in 1-1/4 cups of fresh blueberries.



Pour batter into a 9x9 cake pan.

Bake for approximately 40 minutes at 350 degrees F.




Allow to cool for 10 to 15 minutes, remove from pan and top with toasted coconut.


Just make sure you serve yourself the first piece. After all, you did all the work, you deserve it and it's the only way to get you to stop drooling.

You really can bake those desserts! Are you sure you don't have a little Dutch blood in you?

Cathy said...

Yum! There is something about the smell of blueberries baking - they aren't my favourite when they are on their own, but thrown into batter and I'm all over them. Love the addition of coconut too.

Debbie said...

I am anxious for our local berries to be ready!

5 Star Foodie said...

Coconut and blueberry sound great together in this delicious cake! Yum!

Marjie said...

It would be pretty ugly if you drooled on the cake, wouldn't it?

Superfine sugar is sold in the store. It's just itty bitty crystals.

Natashya said...

That looks so good, I would eat it for breakfast with my coffee. Well, it does have fruit in it!
(superfine sugar is sometimes listed as fruit sugar, or you can blend regular granulated in small batches until fine - mostly it is just used because of it's easy ability dissolve)

Cheryl said...

Looks amazing, I love the idea of Coconut.

Gladys said...

I love coconut. Have you ever tried the shaved coconut from Trader Joes? You have to be careful because it is pretty dry compared to the stuff you get in the grocery, but it is awesome in cakes and pies.

Debbie said...

Love the blueberry and coconut. Two of my favorites. I made your Apple Cream Pecan Pie this morning and I'll be having that for dessert tonight!!! I'll post it also sometime in the near future. Can't wait to try it!!!! Thanks Katherine....
