Blueberry Lemon Bundt Cake

I haven’t used my bundt cake pan for quite some time and as I had some buttermilk left, a fruit bundt cake seemed the best way to use it. A simple blueberry lemon bundt cake sounded perfect to me, I was craving for some for a couple of weeks.


This recipe is very easy to prepare, takes only few minutes until is ready for baking. I used frozen wild mountain blueberries, which are smaller in size and have a wonderful unique tangy taste and flavor, a bit different from the big sweet ones found on grocery stores. I had the luck to buy a lot of wild blueberries after they were picked on the mountain, and we froze them so we can enjoy their delicious flavor all the months after. Fresh blueberries will work good as well, no doubt about that.


This cake is amazing, soft with a lot of blueberries inside, lemon flavored, definitely one of the best cakes ever. I have always preferred chocolate desserts but this cake is as good as a chocolate one 🙂 You can make a lemon glaze topping though for me it seemed sweet enough and sprinkled only some powdered sugar on top. Feel free to try both toppings and see which one you like best.
