Blueberry Cake With Hot Sauce Glaze

by Sarah Marshall August 26, 2020

We don't write recipes for many desserts, but this one is a real winner. I love making it with Huckleberries for a Pacific Northwest kick, but that season is very slim. You can make this in a loaf pans or circular baking dishes.

Cake Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups fresh blueberries
  • 1 cup butter, room temperature
  • 8 ounces cream cheese, room temperature
  • 1 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 4 medium eggs
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt


  • 1 cup fresh blueberries
  • 1 cup confectioners sugar
  • 2 tablespoons Bird’s Eye Basil Marshall’s Haute Sauce


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  • In a mixing bowl toss blueberries with 2 tablespoons of flour and set aside
  • In a large mixing bowl cream together butter, cream cheese, sugar, and vanilla. Add eggs one at a time beating well with each edition.
  • In another bowl combine the remaining two cups of flour, baking soda, and salt. Slowly mix into wet batter until combined. Fold in blueberries.
  • Pour batter into two greased 9”5’ loaf pans and bake for 45 minutes.
  • While bread is baking, make the glaze.
  • In a small sauce pan over medium low heat, cook the blueberries and Bird’s Eye Basil sauce until the berries burst. About 5 minutes.
  • Smash any full berries with a fork and stir in the sugar. (If you aren’t a fan of berry skins you can hit it with an immersion blender.)
  • When cake is done baking remove it from the oven and let cool 10 minutes.
  • Remove cake from pan and pour the glaze over the top.
