  • Preheat your oven to 325°F. Coat the inside of a loaf pan with shortening or butter and lightly dust with flour.
  • Sift together the flour, baking powder and salt and mix well. Set aside.
  • Cream the butter in an electric mixer fitted with a paddle until light, about 3-4 minutes. Gradually add the sugar and beat until fluffy.
  • Add the eggs one at a time, then the vanilla extract, scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed until evenly blended.
  • Gradually add all but 1 tablespoon of the flour mixture until just combined. Do not over mix.
  • Gently toss the blueberries in the remaining flour then carefully fold in the blueberries and any loose flour with a spoon or silicone spatula.
  • Pour the batter into the prepared pan.
  • Bake for 70-90 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Let cool before removing from the pan.
  • Slice and serve.



Tips and Techniques

  • Double the recipe if using a bundt pan.
  • Measure flour by gently “fluffing” the flour in its container, then spooning it into a measuring cup with out packing. Overfill the cup some, then use the back of a butter knife to level it off.
  • Do not open the oven door until the minimum bake time has passed. Then check the pound cake with a toothpick. If a crack forms in the center (normal), it may appear wet. This is not an indicator of cake doneness. 
  • Store leftovers tightly covered at room temperature. Use within 5 days for best results. Do not refrigerate this cake, as it will loose some of its flavor and the texture may change.
