My mom makes this all the time, it's wonderful as a coffee cake for breakfast or as a desert. Just make sure you put your cake pan on a cookie sheet or something the like. For whatever reason, half the times we've made it, the topping overflows, ever so slightly and makes a mess in the oven. Usually, it doesn't do this, but cleaning burnt blueberries off the bottom of the oven leaves the cake out in the rain, by which I mean it sucks vast quantities of donkey dick, so.

2. In the bowl of electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream butter and granulated sugar until light and fluffy, about 4 minutes. Add eggs, one at a time, until well combined. Add vanilla, and beat until combined. Add reserved flour mixture and the sour cream, and beat just until well combined. Fold in 2 cups blueberries. Spoon batter into prepared pan.
