Blueberry Lemon Cake

Blueberry Lemon Cake

I’ve been on a blueberry roll all week, I think this is my third recipe this week using them. It is the fruit of the month for the Fresh From Florida campaign that I work on every month. Love, love that the fresh Florida blueberries are starting to show up in the grocery stores now.

This cake is perfect for a coffee break or when you need a pick me up. It bursts with fresh blueberries and lemon flavors, one of my favorite flavor combinations. It almost rivals my peanut butter and chocolate love affair.

Double this recipe if you’d like a larger loaf. This was baked in a 9 x 5 pan and it was just over half full when baked. This cake will easily serve 6 people as it is. This cake is best baked a day ahead or in the morning for that evening.
