You guys just chuggin’ along through February like me? Awesome- here’s the good news- small berries are on crazy sale like every dang week right now. For me it’s mostly been blueberries and blackberries, but man, it’s been cool.

And anyways so I ran to the store the other day in need of something completely un-fun like paper towels or something, but then there was a huge display for blueberries SUPER cheap. So, here we are now with a really good excuse to bake, and eat fruit, AND procrastinate on other life things.

So, onto the cake. This is a simple pound cake filled with blueberries. There’s some lemon zest inside the cake itself, but most of the lemon flavor is actually coming from a tart lemon glaze. The whole thing is super simple and easy to whip up, and who doesn’t like cake a hurry?

This pretty bundt pan is a favorite of mine, but you can use any bundt you’ve got, or even just a straight sided tube pan. When you need cake, you make the cake in whatever you have. Just make sure you know how to properly grease whatever you use- we all know the horror of a bundt cake that won’t come out.

The lemon glaze is just two ingredients- lemon juice and powdered sugar. If you prefer a lighter lemon flavor, use half lemon juice and half water. Since it’s just the glaze, I love a really bright lemon flavor that pops.

Anyways, I hope blueberries are on sale where you are, I hope you’ve had a super easy week, and I hope you love this cake!

  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • Zest from 1 lemon

    This was awesome! I had a little trouble making sure my berries didn't sink (since there are SO MANY of them) but perhaps if I only dry them 80% so that the flour sticks a little better this would help. I finished it this morning and half of it is already gone…..
