How To Make lemon blueberry coffee cake

Test Kitchen Tips
We found a 10 oz jar of lemon curd was exactly 1 cup.
  • Setting the oven to preheat.
    Pre-heat oven to 350° degrees. Grease and flour 10” tube pan.
  • Creaming butter and sugar until creamy.
    In a mixer, beat butter until light and fluffy. Add sugar 1/2 cup at a time, creaming well after each.
  • Squeezing juice into the batter.
    Then add lemon juice and zest mix well. Add eggs, one at a time, and mix well after each egg.
  • Pouring lemon curd into the batter.
    Add lemon curd and milk to the creamed mixture.
  • Dry ingredients combined in a bowl.
    Combine and sift together dry ingredients. Mixing well as you go, add flour mixture a little at a time.
  • Flour incorporated into the batter.
    Mix thoroughly until your batter is nice and smooth.
  • Folding flour-coated blueberries into the batter.
    Place fresh blueberries in a bowl. Add flour, coat well. Then sift excess flour off blueberries. Add them to the batter. Fold them in and be careful not to mix too hard. You want your blueberries to be nice and plump in your cake.
  • Cake batter in a pan baking in the oven.
    Pour batter into prepared pan. Bake until a wooden toothpick inserted in the cake comes out clean; about 55 to 60 minutes.
  • Dusting powdered sugar over the cake.
    After baking let cool for about 20 minutes. Then remove from the pan and dust with powder sugar for an extra touch.
  • Lemon Blueberry Coffee Cake ready to be sliced.
    Great with coffee or tea. Enjoy
