It's blueberry season again. I am always looking for new recipes to use up those leftover berries in the fridge. I came up with this one using an old recipe and tweaking it with sour cream which makes it moist. Some coffee cakes dry out within a day but this one will surprise you. Bursting with fresh blueberries, this cake is good for breakfast, brunch or dessert.
