4Grate the entire lemon( should add up to 2-3 Tbsp) and mix into the batter
5Squeeze out 1/4 Cup of lemon juice and mix thoroughly into the yogurt. This adds taste and also thins out the thick Greek Yogurt
6Add 1/3 of flour mixture and mix in completely. Follow with the yogurt then alternate flour and yogurt ending with the rest of the flour.
7Mix 1 Cup of blueberries with the 1 tsp of flour then fold in gently.
8Grease and flour a bundt pan, then pour in the batter. Take the remaining 1/2 cup to cup of blueberries and add to the top, slightly pushing into the batter. That way the blueberries will be throughout the cake, not just on the bottom.

10Prepare Lemon Glaze:
