Blueberry cake with cream cheese frosting

I always fall in love with lovely book and this one is no exception ................. Anyway I have to tell you that if you like sweet cake, this book is the one for you, but if you have the same taste as me, you may find the frosting in this book is
too sweet.

I tried this recipe by making only 1/6 of the original recipe, (so if you want to make the big one just using 10 inch ring mold), but I adapted the recipe a bit (well, I reduce the sugar, increase the sour cream, and add more blueberry).

For the frosting, I reduce the sugar too. But if you want to use the original frosting recipe just use 100 g of confectioners’ sugar than 60g, (which I found the sweetness is not bad, when you eat with fresh fruit, but if your blueberry is sweet, using less sugar will be better ^ ^).

The cake is soft and very good, I like the texture of it, and when eating with the frosting and fresh fruits, this cake is great. And don't forget that it's very easy to make too.

Note: If making 10 inch cake, the baking time will be 40 minutes.
The frosting for the 10 inch cake will be 3 times of this recipe, not 6.
