For the Cake:

  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup unsalted butter room temperature
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 6 large eggs

For the Glaze:

Alternately add flour mixture and sour cream to butter mixture, beating on low speed after each addition just until combined.

For Frozen Blueberries - Feel free to use frozen berries in this recipe.  Don't thaw.  Just add them right into the recipe.
You can replace the blueberries with any other type of berry (strawberry, blackberry, etc.).
Also make sure your ingredients especially butter are room temperature before beginning.
