Blueberry Cake with Lemon Glaze

Hey there!

This cake is super yummy, and super easy- just what I look for in my recipes! We used fresh blueberries because they are plentiful at the farmer's market right now, but frozen would probably work just fine. Let's get started!

Your wet and dry ingredients, and blueberries.
Stir up everything into your dough, then pour in the berries.
Fold in the berries carefully, so as not to pop them!
Pour your mixture into a greased loaf pan.
Your cake just out of the oven- beautiful!
Make your lemon glaze and pour over- I didn't sift my sugar, which is why it is a little lumpy- just as tasty though!

Blueberry Cake with Lemon Glaze
-1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened
-2 ounces cream cheese, softened
-1 cup sugar
-1 egg
-1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
-2/3 cup buttermilk
-2 cups fresh blueberries (or thawed frozen ones)
-2 cups flour
-2 teaspoons baking powder
-1/2 teaspoon salt
Cream butter, cream cheese, and sugar. Beat in egg and vanilla. Stir in dry ingredients and buttermilk, alternating. Fold in blueberries.
Bake at 350 F for 45-55 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Let cool, then loosen the sides by running a knife along the sides of the pan, and turn out.
Glaze- a few teaspoons lemon juice and a few spoonfuls of powdered sugar, mix up with a fork, and drizzle on top!

Your delicious finished product- bursting with berries and flavor. Dig in!

Savor it!
love, rue
