This is a modified recipe from one I found in an old muffin cookbook. I adjusted some of the ingredients to remove some of the fat and cholesterol content...but I still bake with butter so beware. Now with this said - this is NOT a diet cake - cake is cake and still holds calories - this is just my version of a reduced fat version. NOTE: If using frozen blueberries for this recipe DO NOT thaw before adding to the batter.
- 1⁄3 cup butter, softened
- 3⁄4 cup sugar
- 1⁄2 cup egg substitute (equivalent of 2 large eggs)
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup fat free sour cream
- 1 cup blueberries (fresh or frozen but if using frozen see note in description)
- 3 tablespoons sugar
- 2 teaspoons cinnamon
- Spray a 10-inch flute tube pan with cooking spray and then dust lightly with flour.
- In a large mixing bowl, beat the butter and sugar until crumbly, about 2 minutes.
- Beat in the egg substitute and vanilla.
- In another bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
- Add dry ingredients to the egg mixture alternately with the sour cream.
- Gently fold in the blueberries.
- In a small bowl, combine the topping ingredients.
- Spoon half of the batter into the prepared pan.
- Sprinkle half of the "topping" ingredients over this layer.
- Spoon the remaining half of batter into the pan and top the batter with the remaining topping mixture.
- Bake at 350F for 40-50 minutes or until a pick comes out clean.
- Cool cake for 10 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack to cool.
- Before serving, dust with confectioners' sugar if desired.
What a great tasting coffeecake this is Melissa. I especially love the added cinnamon/sugar combination thru-out. Just the right amount of crunch and sweet. Since I made at the coffee/cafe I work for and to be sold by the slice I used regular eggs and regular sourcream. But, I can see doing the less pudge substitutes at home w/o any of the taste being compromised. I also used a powdered sugar glaze w/a bit of blueberry syrup added for flavor. Thanks for posting this keeper of a recipe and I"m so happy I tagged it for PhotoTag~
Certainly does not taste like a healthier recipe. Never have this type of egg product but alwyays substitute regular eggs which work fine. For varient you can use 1/2 raspberries which just gives a slightly different finished flavor. Thanks for such an easier and reliable recipe
I tossed out my old bundt last summer and still haven't gotten around to replacing it so I made 2 smaller round cakes which is better for my family anyway. I used the convection and it quickly formed a crispy top "skin" which was broken and the inside cake rose. It's so cool looking like that. I think I must have poured all of the berried in the side of the cake that I didn't cut for the pic because there are lots in there but not in that slice, bummer. Everyone loves it and I know that some blueberry fruit sauce on top would really be outstanding.
