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 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!|
