Gradually add the egg mixture in three additions, mixing 20 seconds after each addition. Increase the mixer speed until the batter is light and fluffy. (this batter is so delicious). Spread two cups of batter into the prepared bundt pan. Top with half of the blueberries. Sprinkle with the streusel topping,without the nuts. Repeat layers. On the top of the cake sprinkle the pecan streusel mixture. Place on bottom rack of 350 degree oven. Bake for 1 hour. Test for doneness, if not done, continue to test at 5 minute intervals.

For the glaze:
While the cake is baking, prepare the glaze. Beat all glaze ingredients with mixer on high speed until smooth. You may need to add more milk for drizzling consistency. You can judge this. When cake is cool, drizzle the glaze all over the rounded top of the bundt cake.
