  • ¾ cup (150g) granulated sugar
  • ¼ cup (½ stick, 57g) butter, room temperature
  • ½ cup sour cream, room temperature
  • 1 large egg, room temperature
  • cups (187.5g) all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ½ cup milk
  • 2 cups fresh blueberries, divided


  • Preheat oven to 375°F and grease an 8½ x 4½-inch loaf pan.
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer with a paddle attachment, add the sugar, butter, sour cream, and egg. Beat until creamy. (You could also use a handheld mixer.)
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, and salt.
  • Alternating between the flour mixture and milk, add each to the butter mixture, beginning and ending with the flour mixture.
  • Gently fold in about 1¾ cups of blueberries, reserving ¼ cup for the topping.
  • Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan and top with the reserved blueberries.
  • Bake for 80 minutes*. (See notes) The bread is done when an inserted toothpick comes out clean with a few crumbs, but no wet batter.
  • Allow the cake to cool before serving.


Every oven is different so I recommend starting to check at 60 minutes. You can check by (carefully) shaking the pan gently and observe if the middle jiggles. You do not want it to jiggle. You can also test by inserting a skewer or toothpick into the center. If it is removed with any wet batter, it is not done baking.
