Made this yesterday, and it's the best. After reading the reviews and making my own tweaks, I cut the sour cream back to one cup, added a heaping teaspoon of cinnamon and some chopped walnuts and the blueberries to the flour mixture, used a stick of butter and 1/2 cup of canola oil, increased the flour by 1/4 cup, used orange extract instead of vanilla, baked it in an angel food cake pan with removable bottom, and topped it with 1/2 cup of brown sugar mixed with 1 tsp of cinnamon and 1/2 cup chopped pecans. Sprinkled baker's white sugar over all. Gadzooks! It is so good. I did add the extra flour because the batter was so wet I was afraid it wouldn't rise properly, and had no problem there. A bit calorific, but worth it. Update: The change from part butter to part canola oil kept the cake together and moist for 4 days. So good!
My rating is lower than usual. Have made very similar coffee cakes to this and they only use 1 c. sour cream - hence the reason some reviewers have had problems. Also, with sour cream there is usually a small amount of baking soda as well. I question these ingredients even tho some seem to have had success. I do a lot of baking and have also done catering so I am not a novice.

In a word....'delicious!' I made it exactly as the recipe describes except that I did follow Susan's hint and I only used 8 ounces of sour creme, and for my own sake I replaced the 2 cups of sugar w/ 2 cups of Splenda brand sugar blend for baking. After my blueberries were done drying I put them in a plastic baggie and tossed 1-2 Tbs. of flour in w/them before folding them into batter. I baked it for one hour in a dark non-stick bundt pan that I used Pam flour spray on. I checked it after 50 minutes of baking time and just made sure the rest of the time that it was baking correctly-I was worried about it not being baked all the way through as one of the raters complained about! BUT- I had no problem whatsoever w/ it 'falling' or not be baked enough. Husband loved it as I did as well. Thanks for the recipe...I'll be keeping this one!
