Blueberry Coffee Cake Bundt with Vanilla Glaze - I Like Big Bundts
Magnolia's Blueberry Coffee Cake Bundt with Vanilla Glaze 

It's Day #25 of I Like Big Bundts 2010! The Food Librarian's 30 days of Bundt cakes...ending on National Bundt Day on November 15th. I hope it is on your calendar! :)

So, here is Magnolia Bakery's Blueberry Coffee Cake with Vanilla Glaze. I picked up their book at the library (I almost always take a cookbook out for a test drive first. Do you do that too?)

Magnolia Bakery. Sorry, I have to giggle because I can't say Magnolia without breaking out the SNL short Lazy Sunday.

I cannot lie.
I like Big Bundts.

Magnolia's recipe calls for making it in a tube pan/angel food pan. Okay. Let's get something straight because some people have asked me this...in my book, a tube pan is not a bundt. Sure, it has a hole in the center, but I believe true bundts are "bottoms up." They are always inverted so the stuff on the bottom of the pan ends up on top. And tube pans? Not very sexy. You can usually bake tube pan recipes in a Bundt pan (and why wouldn't you...they are so much prettier! :), unless the tube pan recipe calls for a "baked-on topping" like a streusel.

I made an error on the glaze. It's a mixture of heavy cream, powdered sugar and vanilla (I used vanilla paste). However, I just mixed it all together (cold), but the instructions say to place over a double boiler and blend together. The consistency would be a lot different than my results. Next time, I'll actually read the full recipe! :)

Also, if you make a Bundt for National Bundt Day, I'll send you a JustJennDesign's I Like Big Bundts button! (head over to JustJenn's site for her free shipping week!) They are small and stylin'.

You will need to email me: (1) Link to your blog post (I will use one photo from your post for the round-up) or (2) One JPG photo if you don't have a blog, (3) Your name and title of your Bundt (4) Mailing address for the button. I'm going to do a round up after National Bundt Day (Nov 15th) so this stuff is due by Monday, November 22nd. Please don't rummage through your archives for an old Bundt, you need to bake something fresh for National Bundt Day to qualify for the button (doesn't have to be a new recipe, just something made this month please :) Your family, friends and co-workers will thank you! :)

See you back here tomorrow for yet another Bundt! - mary the food librarian

I think that you're glaze looks fab as it is, especially if it helps to keep it on the cake, and provides lots of texture x

Delish! The cookbook section of the library is my favorite part. :) Also, thanks for the bundt/tube pan clarification!
