Lemon Blueberry Bundt
Here is an utterly delicious Lemon Blueberry Bundt that is easy to make yet a show stopper of a dessert! This is not only gorgeous to serve in the spring but all summer long. I love making a bundt cake and lemon and blueberry flavors together can’t be beat. If you have a good quality pan and prepare it well with melted butter and then flour you should have a cake that just pops right out of the pan!
A super simple glaze and a few curls off a zester and your masterpiece is complete. This cake would be great at any time of the day or night. Having a quick slice for a snack works wonderfully too! I like to keep my bundts a bit denser and oh so moist with the use of a pudding mix and sour cream. The added lemon pudding just ups the flavor even more too!
Besides this cake being moist and lovely it has a great pop of taste from the blueberries and lemon which is such a scrumptious combination of flavors!! Blueberries this year seem to be extra sweet. Amber sits down with a clam shell of blueberries and they are gone in minutes. So yummy and so good for you too!
Really simple ingredients but the outcome is nothing but simple. The glaze is only confectioner’s sugar and lemon juice. You can adjust the ingredients if you like a thicker or thinner glaze easily but be careful as a little juice changes it quickly.
Come on over and have a slice, hope you enjoy it as much as we did!
