Blueberry Sour Cream Coffee Cake

Blueberry Sour Cream Coffee Cake...A great Christmas recipe to give as gift or serve at your next holiday party!

2 cups all-purpose flour
1 Tablespoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 cups granulated sugar
2 sticks (1 cup) unsalted butter, softened
2 large eggs, beaten lightly
1 cup sour cream
1 Tablespoon vanilla extract
1 13-ounce jar Wild Maine Blueberry Jam, stirred well (Pick your jar up at Bonnes Amies)

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees F.
Butter a 10-inch bundt pan and lightly dust the inside with flour.
Sift together and set aside the flour, baking powder and salt.
In a mixer, or by hand, cream sugar and butter until light and fluffy.
Add eggs, blending well, and then add sour cream and vanilla. Mix until combined.
Gradually fold in flour, baking powder, and salt into creamed mixture until just blended.
Reserve 1/2 cup of batter and mix with 3/4 of the jar of Wild Maine Blueberry Jam.
Pour 3/4 remaining batter into the prepared pan, smoothing to the edges and creating a slight "trough" with a spatula.
Gently spoon the blueberry mix into the batter trough, being careful not to touch the side of the pan.
Spread the remaining batter over the jam and smooth the top.
Set pan on middle rack in the oven and bake for about 50-60 minutes, or until the sides of the cake pull away from the pan and a cake tester (or toothpick) inserted in the center comes out clean.
Cool on a wire rack for at least 30 minutes. Turn onto a plate, sprinkle with confectioner's sugar, drizzle with remaining jam and enjoy!
