Blueberry Coffee Cake with Cinnamon Glaze

Our local market is practically overflowing with fresh summer berries, and I never leave it without buying more (berries being one of my favorite snacks). With a surplus of blueberries in my fridge, I decided to bake some into a delicious coffee cake.

Blueberry Coffee Cake with Cinnamon Glaze (from here, with a few changes)

Cake:

2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda 

1/2 teaspoon salt 
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon 
1 cup butter, softened
2 cups granulated sugar
3 eggs
1 tablespoon vanilla
1 cup sour cream 

1/4 cup buttermilk 
2 cups fresh blueberries
2 tablespoons flour

Glaze:
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla
1 teaspoon cinnamon
milk

Preheat oven to 350. Grease and flour a bundt pan. 

Mix together flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon in a medium bowl. Set aside.

Cream together butter and sugar until well incorporated, add eggs one at a time and then vanilla. Mix until fluffy. Add in sour cream and beat until batter is smooth and fluffy. Then add in dry ingredients, beat until mostly mixed together and then add the buttermilk. Mix until batter is completely smooth.

In a small bowl, toss the blueberries together with remaining 2 tablespoons of flour. Gently fold the berries into the batter with a spatula.

Pour batter into prepared pan and bake for about 55 minutes. 

Allow cake to cool for about 10 minutes before removing from the pan. Allow cake to cool completely before adding glaze.

For the glaze, mix together sugar, cinnamon, and vanilla, then add milk, tablespoon by tablespoon until desired consistency is reached.
