Blueberry Brunch Cake

Sprinkle turbinado sugar and nutmeg over the batter to give the cake a glistening brown appearance and a sugary, sweet crust. If you can't find turbinado sugar, combine light brown sugar with the nutmeg, and sift the mixture evenly over the batter.


12 servings (serving size: 1 slice cake, 2 tablespoons sour cream mixture, and 1 tablespoon blueberries)
