Slightly different, this one begins with 2 boxes of blueberry muffin mix. NOTE: You will use the two small cans of blueberries included in the packaged muffin mixes; there are no fresh blueberries in this recipe. This breakfast cake comes from one of my old "card libraries" but don't remember which one. so can't give credit where credit is due. It's a family favorite.
- Heat oven to 350°.
- Grease a 12-cup Bundt pan.
- Drain and rinse blueberries; set aside.
- Mix brown sugar, nuts and cinnamon; set aside.
- In a large bowl blend eggs, sour cream and water. Blend in muffin mix with a fork. Spread 1/3 of batter in pan; top with half the sugar mixture and half the blueberries.
- Repeat, ending with last 1/3 of muffin batter.
- NOTE: I've found that if I twist a knife through the batter a few times just before baking that it disperses the cinnamon/nut mixture more evenly and makes a better swirl throughout the entire cake.
- Bake 50 minutes.
- Mix confectioners' sugar and milk until smooth. Drizzle on warm cake.
- A great breakfast treat for the whole family.
I was a little leery at first because the batter was a little tough to work with. It just did not want to spread. I finally sprayed a spatula with cooking spray and used that to smooth out the batter. I was also nervous about the amoung of nut mixture. Needless to say, there was nothing to worry about. The batter baked up fine and the amount of filling was perfect. I didn't find the cinnamon too overpowering and I used the full tablespoon. Loved it. The best part of this whole cake is that the crust reminds me of how muffin tops taste (you know the top of the muffin is the best part!) Julie, I absolutely love it!
I will never make blueberry muffins again. This is a new favorite. Served it while still warm, and it was to die for. I used pecans instead of walnuts, because that was what we had on hand. It turned out wonderful, thanks for the great recipe Julie B!
this was easy and wonderful, my requirement for a good recipe. i like the fact that it uses a muffin mix, but the end results don't reflect this. i used pecans instead of the walnuts and low fat sour cream and egg substitute and there was no loss in the delish factor of this cake. thank you for posting this really great recipe.
