  1. Preheat oven to 350°. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in vanilla. Combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt; add to creamed mixture alternately with sour cream, beating well after each addition.
  2. Spoon a third of the batter into a greased and floured 10-in. fluted tube pan. Combine brown sugar, flour and cinnamon; sprinkle half over batter. Top with half of the berries. Repeat layers. Top with remaining batter.
  3. Bake 55-65 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack to cool completely. Combine glaze ingredients; drizzle over warm coffee cake. Yield: 10-12 servings.
Editor's Note: If using frozen blueberries, use without thawing to avoid discoloring the batter.

"I made this and I loved it! I also got really good feedback from other people as well. The frosting that's suggested tasted like confectioners sugar, so I added a small amount of melted butter, a teaspoon of cinnamon and a tablespoon of heavy cream and I drizzled that over the cake.

I will be making this again."

"What a delicious coffee cake....very moist, and with a lovely, fine- crumbed texture. I made it exactly as written, and will certainly be making it again. Oh, I did add a little vanilla to the glaze; I think adding a bit of lemon juice and some grated rind to the glaze would taste delicious, also. Thanks to Susan for submitting the recipe!!"

"I just have a suggestion for your lovely cake - I have a blueberry cake that I love, and always add either toasted pecans or walnuts (my family love nuts), as well as zest from either 2 lemons or orange and lemon. It gives it a great taste, but doesn't distract from the blueberries!"

"A wonderful cake recipe, I've made it several times and it always comes out perfectly. I love to add it to my brunch menu, especially in the spring of the year. I've never found it to be dry, but I have noticed that if you measure an 8-ounce container of sour cream, that's not really a cup. So, I always measure a cup full of sour cream and add it that way, which I belileve makes it nice and moist."
