Nova Scotia Blueberry Cream Cake

Nova Scotia Blueberry Cream Cake

You really can’t go wrong with a berry dessert. Berries and chocolate are usually some of the only ingredients that don’t cause any type of argument. While I love strawberry, I have a special weak spot in my heart for blueberries. The way they color everything and have that slightly tart flavor- they’re just perfect. This special “cake” is one of my new favorites since it combines that lovely blueberry flavor with a creamy top with a cookie base.

This Nova Scotia blueberry cream cake is a local favorite in this Atlantic Canadian province. Unlike a traditional cake, this is more like if a sugar cookie and a cheesecake had a baby.

A rich, crispy cookie forms the base, while a sour cream topping gives it the creaminess from the title. And of course, we can’t forget the blueberries, which give the cream layer so much fresh flavor.

When it all comes together the result is very much like a cheesecake, but with a milder cream layer and much more fruit flavor.

  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder

  • 1 egg
FOR THE TOP LAYER:
  • 1 egg yolk
