Winter Blueberry Cake


    For the Chocolate Cake:

  • butter/oil for greasing the pans
  • 3½ cups all-purpose flour, plus more for pans
  • 4 cups sugar
  • 1½ cups good cocoa powder
  • 4 teaspoons baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 2 cups buttermilk, shaken
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 4 extra-large eggs, at room temperature
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 2 cups freshly brewed hot coffee
  • For the Frosting:

  • 2 8 ounce packages cream cheese, softened
  • ½ cup butter, softened
  • 3 cups confectioner's sugar, sifted
  • 1½ teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 cup California Giant blueberries for garnish


  • For the Chocolate Cake:

      • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
      • Butter or grease three 8-inch round cake pans. Line the bottom with parchment paper, then butter/grease and flour the pans again.
      • Sift the flour, sugar, cocoa, baking soda, baking powder, and salt into the bowl of an electric mixer. Blend on low speed until incorporated.
      • In a separate bowl, combine the buttermilk, oil, eggs, and vanilla. With the mixer on low speed, slowly add the wet ingredients to the dry. With mixer still on low, add the coffee and blend until just combined.
      • Divide the batter evenly into the prepared pans and bake for 35-40 minutes, until a cake tester comes out clean. Cool in the pans for 30 minutes, then turn them out onto a cooling rack and cool completely.
  • For the Frosting:

      • Beat the cream cheese with an electric mixer.
      • Add in the butter and mix together with cream cheese until light and fluffy.
      • Add confectioner's sugar, 1/2 a cup at a time. After each cup has been incorporated, turn the mixer onto the highest setting and for about 10 seconds to lighten the frosting.
      • Add in vanilla and cream until well-blended, light and fluffy.
      • Once the cakes are cooled, stack them on top of each other, spreading a generous amount of frosting in between each one. Frost the rest of the cake completely. For the rustic look, use a knife to scrape off excess frosting on the sides.
      • Top with blueberries and other garnishes and enjoy!
