when are blueberries in season?

For my home state of Pennsylvania, the earliest blueberries are in season, according to the PA Harvest Calendar is in mid-June. They’re most active from the beginning of July through the beginning of August. In general though, for North America, the blueberry season runs from April through September.

I usually buy them year round though because I love them with my oatmeal, waffles, french toast, or just as-is.

For this blueberry bundt cake recipe, you’ll need either a hand-held mixer or a stand mixer, and a small food processor.

how do I make cinnamon sugar?

This is one of the easiest mixes to make and you can easily keep it stored in a container for other recipes! It’s 1/2 cup of granulated sugar plus 1 teaspoon of cinnamon. That’s it!

You can always buy some in the grocery store. There’s one local to me that sells it in a large container, but making it at home is so ridiculously easy!

how to make this super easy blueberry bundt cake

Just like the recipe title says, this is a super easy blueberry bundt cake to make! It takes approximately 15-20 minutes to prep the recipe and 85-90 minutes of baking. And while your bundt cake bakes, you can clean up!

prep your baking tools

The key to a successful bundt cake rests in the hands—or rather can—of baking spray. Generously coat the inside of the bundt cake pan, and don’t forget the center cone area. Don’t ever skip this part.

coat the blueberries

An easy step you might be tempted to skip, but it will help to keep your blueberries from sinking while baking. After rinsing and drying the blueberries, you’ll place them with a little all-purpose flour into a ziploc bag. Close the bag, then give it a few shakes to coat the blueberries.

make the batter

Whisk your dry ingredients first, then add them to the wet ingredients. Be careful not to over mix the batter! And make sure to use a spatula to fold in the coated blueberries into the batter.

You’ll pour a little of the batter into the prepared bundt cake pan first, then sprinkle some of the cinnamon sugar mix over top. Repeat this until you’ve used up all the batter. You can save the cinnamon sugar mix for other recipes!

Bake the blueberry bundt cake for 85-90 minutes at 350ºF. Once you remove it from the oven, run a small pairing knife along the inside edges of the pan. This will help when you invert it a little bit later. Do not immediately invert it onto the cooling rack. You need to let your cake settle for 10-15 minutes first.

make the blueberry glaze

Only 4 simple ingredients and they all get mixed together in a small food processor. If you don’t have one, you can smash up the blueberries in a sealed ziploc bag using large spoon. The food processor is much easier though!

Instructions

bundt cake

  1. Adjust the oven rack to 2nd level position and preheat the oven to 350ºF.
  2. Generously coat your bundt pan with a flour-based baking spray. Alternatively, you can grease and flour the pan.
  3. Rinse your blueberries in a colander, then gently pat dry with paper towels. Place them into a large ziploc bag and add 2 tablespoons of all-purpose flour. Seal the bag and toss to coat the blueberries. Set to the side.
  4. In a medium bowl, whisk together the all-purpose flour and baking powder and set to the side.
  5. Using your hand-held mixer or stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, mix together the granulated sugar and coconut oil on medium-high speed until blended. It will look a little like a slushie.
  6. Add in the eggs one at a time until blended, then add in the orange juice.
  7. Switching the mixer speed to low, gradually add in the whisked dry mixture until just combined.
  8. With a spatula gently fold the flour coated blueberries into the cake batter.
  9. Pour a little of your batter into the bundt pan then sprinkle with cinnamon-sugar. Repeat this step until you’ve used all the batter.
  10. Give the bundt pan a few light taps to remove any air bubbles that may have crept their way into the batter. Place the bundt cake onto a small baking sheet, then place into the oven.
  11. Bake for 85-90 minutes or until golden brown (mine went the full 90 minutes). 
  12. Once done, remove from the oven and allow to sit for 10-15 minutes.
  13. Gently slide a small pairing knife along the sides of the bundt cake pan to loosen it from the pan.
  14. Carefully invert the bundt cake onto a wire cooling rack, then allow to cool. The bundt cake can be slightly warm when ready to serve, but should be moved to a cake plate before adding the blueberry glaze.

  1. Using a small food processor, add the confectioners sugar, blueberries, vanilla extract, and milk. Pulse until it forms the glaze. It should be on the thicker side, but still pourable. Drizzle over top of the blueberry bundt cake and serve.

Notes

Placing the jelly roll pan underneath the bundt cake while baking is an optional step. It’s just there to help catch any potential batter drips.

I highly recommend using Bakers Joy (a flour-based baking spray) to generously coat the bundt pan for easy release after the bundt cake has cooled. I can’t speak for other flour-based baking sprays, but this one works very well!

Store any leftover cinnamon sugar mix in an airtight container for other dessert recipes!
