As most of you know... I am not the one that bakes, cooks, or even grocery shops...I leave that to Gigi, and my Lady Husband. But I decided to act like a lady and bake a bundt cake. and BOY OH BOY.. this is easy..and didn't taste so bad either!
3Cups of All Purpose Flour
1 Tablespoon Baking Powder
1 Teaspoon Salt
1 2/3 Cups Sugar
3/4 cup of Unsalted Butter at Room Temp.
3 Large Eggs
1 Tablespoon of Grated Orange Peel
2 Teaspoons Vanilla Extract
3/4 Cup of Buttermilk
2 Cups of Frozen Blue Berries.
Preheat oven to 350F. Butter and flour a 10 inch diameter Bundt pan. Whisk flour, baking powder, and salt in a medium bowl. Using an electric mixer, beat sugar, and butter in a large bowl until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs, 1 at a time. Beat in the orange peel and vanilla. Beat in dry ingredients in 3 additions alternating with the buttermilk in 2 additions. Fold in blueberries and pour the batter into the pan. Bake for about an hour or until the tester inserted near the center of the cake comes out clean.
Cool cake in pan for 10 minutes, and the Turn the cake out on to a rack to cool completely.
**Frozen blueberries will not sink to the bottom of the cake pan**
**The batter came out REALLY thick and didn't quite pour into the pan as much as me having to scoop it out of the bowl and schlep it into the pan.**
Don't be scared...it will all be okay.
