Blueberry Pound Cake

Have you ever wondered where the name Blueberry “Pound Cake” comes from? No? Well, I did. So what do we do when we don’t know the answer to something? Yeah, we Google it.

Blueberry Pound Cake

So from what I can tell from my Google searches is that Pound Cakes go all the way back to the 1700s. It appears it got its name from the fact that they used to use 1 pound of flour, sugar, butter, and eggs.

I would guess that the result is one huge pound cake or at least a very heavy one. Don’t you worry though, this Blueberry Pound Cake doesn’t use a pound of anything!

Blueberry Pound Cake

In the past, I have used a loaf pan to make my pound cakes but for this one, I used a tube pan. Which is also known as a bundt cake pan with a flat bottom.

Don’t have one? No biggie. Just use whatever you got as long as it can handle all the batter with enough headroom to let the cake rise.

What I love about this Blueberry Pound Cake recipe is the crunchy outside. This is mainly because of how we treat the pan before adding the batter.

Sure you can cheat and just spray your pan but the results will vary. I would also strongly suggest you stick to fresh blueberries, sure you can substitute for the frozen kind but it may not turn out as good.
