Blueberry Pound Cake

Be sure and visit
for Foodie Friday.

Today I decided to do a Blueberry Poundcake. I got the recipe from a fellow Blogger at vegetablematter.blogspot.com.........it looked so good and I had all these blueberries hanging around so I decided to make one. You must try it, it is so delish and very blueberry tasting.
My husband after dinner always likes something sweet, so this cake will do him for a few nights, so far he's given me his thumbs up for this cake.

1 cup butter
2 cups sugar
4 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
2 3/4 cups flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
2 cups fresh blueberries
1/4 cup flour for bluberries
1/4 cup sugar for the pan
butter for greasing pan
10" tube pan or similar

Preheat oven to 325 deg. F.
Grease pan and dust well with 1/4 cup sugar.
Combine 2 3/4 cups flour with baking powder and salt.
Dredge blueberries with the 1/4 cup flour and mix well to coat. You can use frozen blueberries as they also work well.
Cream butter and sugar.
Add eggs one at a time. Mix well each time.......add vanilla and mix well.
Slowly add dry ingredients........when fully incorporated, fold in gently blueberries. Batter will be thick so some of the blueberries may get mashed up in the mixing process.
Bake til' golden on top and baked through, about 60 min. to 75 min....depending on your oven.

Cool, then dust with powdered sugar.

........................ serve at room temperature or toasted with some preserves........on the side. Next time I bake it I'm going to put on a Lemon Glaze.

Store well wrapped at room temperature and great for freezing for later.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!
