I met Jessica a few years ago (gulp, maybe 3 years ago?), and she’s always been one of my favorite people in the food blogging community. Her recipes are fun, FUN!; her personality in person is exactly the same as her blog; and her photos make me want to leap into the computer screen and eat EVERYTHING she makes.

This book, Seriously Delish, is very much her in book form. Her personality shines through, there are tons of enchilada recipes (thank you, Jessica!) and the food looks slutty and gorgeous all at the same time.

It’s a keeper of a book. And I have a feeling I’ll be gifting it a lot this upcoming holiday season, which I don’t want to really believe is almost around the corner. Please, let’s not say the H-Word, T-Word or C-Word for a while. I can’t deal.

This blueberry bundt cake is in the “lighter” chapter—meaning it’s healthy! Well, sorta. For cake at least. It’s about as easy as a cake can possibly be. The glaze is delicious and the crumb is like a quick bread: thick and hearty. I found the most delicious part to be the top, because it gets kinda crunchy and that followed by the soft interior is just a dream.

This cake is summer-y. It’s like late summer-y which is perfect for right this very second. I’m still not ready to talk about fall and leaves and everyone’s obsession with pumpkin spiced lattes (plz can we not), but I did sit in front of my new air-conditioning unit and a few slices of my new favorite bundt cake.

Happy Monday…or Tuesday!

Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 45 minutes
Total Time: 1 hour
Serving Size: 1 Bundt cake

Ingredients

  • 2 cups whole wheat pastry flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3 large eggs
  • 2/3 cup loosely packed light brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup grapeseed oil
  • 1 cup plain full-fat or low-fat Greek yogurt
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 pint fresh blueberries
  • 1 tablespoons whole wheat pastry flour
  • 1/2 cup fresh blueberries
  • 1 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons milk

Directions

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Liberally spray a 6-cup Bundt pan with nonstick spray.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  • Add the eggs and brown sugar to the bowl of your electric mixer. Beat on medium speed until fluffy, 3 to 4 minutes. Add the grapeseed oil and beat for 1 to 2 minutes on low speed. Scrape down the sides of the bowl if needed. Add half of the yogurt and the vanilla extract and beat until combined. With the mixer on low speed, add the dry ingredients. Add the remaining yogurt and beat until just combined.
  • Toss the blueberries with the flour and add them to the batter. Fold them into the batter with a spatula, then pour the batter into the Bundt pan. Bake until the top of the cake is golden brown, 45 minutes. Remove the cake from the oven and let cool in the pan for 15 minutes.
  • For the blueberry glaze, add the blueberries to a food processor and blend until pureed. Add the powdered sugar, vanilla extract, and milk. Blend until creamy and combined.
  • Gently invert the pan on a cake plate to remove the cake. As soon as you remove the cake from the Bundt pan pour the glaze over the top.

Notes

Note from Jessica: Glazes can be tricky. If your blueberries are juicy, the glaze may need a bit more sugar. If the glaze is too thick, add more milk, 1 tablespoon at a time until it's pourable.

    Blueberries and whole wheat DEFINITELY make this healthy. Checking out the book now. I certainly have enough cookbooks but this looks like a great addition.

    I am LOVING this! I just got her cookbook yesterday after talking about it non-stop for months to anyone who would listen. I have decided to cook my way through it Julie/Julia style, so thanks for showcasing what I have in store for me, which looks to be some seriously delish eats!!!!

    This recipe looks fantastic! How would using regular whole wheat flour &/or unbleached APF change the cake? Also does the bunt pan do anything special? I was thinking of using a mini loaf pan or muffin pan.

    Thanks!

      Hi Lisa,

      I’m not quite sure about the flour change because I made it as Jessica wrote it. I have a feeling that it’ll be ok–just a bit less tender and nutty. It should work! Since this cake had a slightly larger crumb, I’d say it would work just fine in another pan. It’ll be way too much batter for a mini loaf pan. I’m thinking it’ll probably fill up two 8×5-inch loaf pans (standard size) or probably give you at least a few dozen muffins. Again, these are just guestimates because I only made it in the bundt pan and with whole wheat flour. Hope this helps!

    I’ve been digging into the cookbook yesterday and today whenever I have a spare minute and I’ve loved every word of it! Her recipes are SO creative. I met her at her book signing yesterday and she was the warmest, nicest person ever. I’m excited to try the recipes. Thanks for sharing this one!! I want to eat that glaze straight from the bowl like soup!!
