Inactive time: 10 minutes
Total time: 1 hour 25 minutes
- 1 cup (2 sticks) Melted Unsalted Butter
- ½ cup Honey
- 1 ½ cups Brown Sugar
- 5 Large Eggs
- 2 ½ cups All-Purpose Flour
- ½ teaspoon Baking Powder
- A dash of Salt
- ¼ cup Copper Harbor Ale
- ¾ cup Buttermilk
- 2 teaspoons Vanilla Extract
- 2/3 cup Chopped Walnut (Fine or Coarsely, your preference)
- 1 ½ pints Blueberries (2 Pints if you really like Blueberries)
- 1 ounce Cream Cheese
- 3 ½ tablespoons Unsalted Butter
- 3 tablespoons Heavy Whipping Cream
- ¾ cup Powdered Sugar
- ½ cup Blueberries
- ¼ cup Chopped Walnuts
- Preheat your oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit. Grease a standard size Bundt Cake pan with Crisco or non-stick cooking spray.
- In a medium saucepan, melt two stick of Unsalted Butter over medium heat. Stir constantly until the butter begins to foam and turns brown in color. This will take about 5-10 minutes and once butter is browned, remove from heat and let sit at room temperature.
- In a large mixing bowl, beat together the browned butter, honey and brown sugar until creamy. Add the eggs one at a time until completely combined.
- In another mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Add the mixture of dry ingredients to the liquid ingredients while alternating the buttermilk and Copper Harbor mixing until the batter is smooth. Stir in vanilla extract, walnuts, and blueberries carefully as to not break the berries apart.
- While the cake is cooling, prepare the glaze topping by beating together the cream cheese, butter, whipping cream, and powdered sugar until thick and creamy.
- Drizzle the glaze over the top of the cake. We recommend to top the fresh glaze with additional blueberries and chopped walnuts.
- Pour the mixture into the prepared Bundt pan. Place on center rack in oven and bake for 60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean. Before removing from the Bundt pan, let the cake cool completely.
