Homemade Blueberry Cake:

Sometimes the simplest recipes are the most delicious. That’s certainly the case with this homemade Blueberry Cake.

This recipe reminds me of something my grandma would make. It’s one of those really simple recipes that you can just “throw together” when you have leftover blueberries or the neighbor down the road drops off some from their blueberry bush.

Speaking of blueberries, if you love blueberry based recipes, I have an entire post dedicated to My Best Blueberry Recipes. You can find that HERE.

I also love that this Blueberry Cake is really easy to make. Let me walk you through the recipe.

How to Make Blueberry Cake:

Begin by preheating your oven to 350 degrees F. Spray an 8×8 inch (or equivalent) pan with baking spray. Set aside.

In a bowl, cream together the butter and 1/2 cup sugar. Add in the salt and vanilla, and mix again to combine.

For your convenience, there is a full ingredient list and detailed instructions in the printable recipe card below.

Next, separate the egg yolks from the egg whites. Reserve the whites. Add the egg yolks to the butter and sugar mixture. Beat to combine.

In a small bowl, whisk together 1 1/2 cups flour with the baking powder. Add this mixture to the egg yolk mixture alternating with the milk. Coat the blueberries with 1 tablespoon of flour. Add to the batter and fold gently to combine.

In a medium bowl, beat the egg white to form soft peaks. Add in 1/4 cup of sugar slowly, and beat to form stiff peaks. Fold this into the batter.

Pour the batter into the prepared ban. Sprinkle the top with 1 tablespoon sugar.

And that’s it! Just bake for 45-50 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean.

    Is the pan size 8×8 or 11×7?

    • Michael Wurm, Jr. at

      I’m not sure of the exact size of this particular pan. You want an 8×8 or equivalent. 11z7 would work just fine.
