How to Make Blueberry Pound Cake?

Sift the dry ingredients of flour, salt and baking powder together. Add the dry mixture to the butter mixture.
Add fresh blueberries to some flour. Gently fold the blueberries into the batter. Grease the pan with some butter and pour batter into it.
Bake for 1 hour and 15 minutes, or until a cake tester inserted into center comes out dry.
If you are a newbie in baking, please follow the baking tips below.
- Invest in baking essentials; a scale is a must when it comes to baking. Cup conversion is not precise.
- Follow the recipe, do not combine the steps or skip the steps.
- Always grease the pan you are using with butter.
- If the top of the cake becomes dark too fast, cover the top with a sheet of aluminum foil to avoid over browning. Just make sure the top of the egg is set before you cover it or the wet batter would stick to the aluminum foil.
- Once the cake is done, remove it immediately and cool on room temperature on a wire rack. Leaving the cake in the oven after baking will continue to bake the cake due to the remaining heat. As a result, the cake might be burned or become too dry and crusty.
- DO NOT remove the cake from the pan when it’s still hot. Once the cake cools down a bit, remove it from the cake pan and slice into pieces.
- You can store the cake at room temperature up to 2-3 days. Reheat the cake in a microwave for 10 seconds before serving, if you like your cake warm.
