A friend gave me this wonderful recipe for Lemon Pound Cake. I decided to add blueberries and lemon zest. The results are YUMMY!! This recipe really fills up a standard bundt what I do is use a bundt pan and a loaf pan, so I get two cakes. I freeze the loaf cake or give it as a gift. Or, you can just make one huge cake!

How To Make blueberry lemon pound cake

  • 1
    Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Prepare your pan(s) with grease and flour. I use the spray can "Joy".

    Sift flour and baking soda in a bowl and swet aside.
  • 3
    Mix softened butter and sugar in mixing bowl until smooth.
  • 4
    Add flour to sugar/butter alternately with eggs, adding the eggs one at a time and beating until blended.

    Add the blueberries and stir gently.

    If using a loaf pan, it should bake for about 35 mins.... the bundt pan will take about an hour.. If using all the batter in a bundt pan, it will take up to 1 hr 30 mins. Allow cake to cool about 10 minutes and remove from pan. Put Lemon Glaze on cake while it is still hot.

    LEMON GLAZE: melt 2 TB butter in a small bowl and add about a cup of powdered sugar. Whisk it together and add your lemon juice. Then pour over the cake(s) while they are still hot.
