Nova Scotia Cream Cake, blueberries, sour cream, delicious!
Nova Scotia Cream Cake
When I first spotted this dessert, I knew right away I wanted to make it! Right now we are using up last years blueberries, getting ready to put away this year's crop. Although the recipe calls for fresh, I thought I would simply use what I had and adapt, this cake was made from freezer stored blueberries and it turned out wonderful!

Nova Scotia Cream Cake

adapted from: Concetta's cafe
375 degrees

Crust ingredients:
1 1/2 c flour
1 1/2 c sugar
1 1/2 t baking powder
1 cube (1/2 c) butter, sliced

1 t vanilla
1 egg

Combine sugar, flour, baking powder and butter in the food processor, process until "crumbly". In a medium-large bowl, beat egg and vanilla, stir in the crumb mixture. Mix lightly until larger crumbs form. Place mixture into prepared 9-inch springform pan.  Press gently.

4 c fresh blueberries (I used IQF blueberries)

Spread blueberries evenly over the top of the crumb mixture.


2 c sour cream
1 egg
1 t vanilla
1/2 c sugar

Beat egg, vanilla, and sugar until smooth. Stir in the sour cream. Pour mixture over blueberries.

Spread to cover evenly. Bake 45 minutes, check to make sure the top is not over-browning. Bake an additional 15 - 20 minutes. If using frozen berries, at 45 minutes, reduce heat to 350 and make up to 45 minutes more. The top will be firm and the edges will be golden brown.

The hard part of this recipe? Waiting for this to cool so I can enjoy a slice.......
