Blueberry Lemon Pound Cake ~ Moist, Delicious Pound Cake Recipe Packed with Fresh Blueberries!
It’s another Secret Recipe Club Reveal day! This month I was assigned A Spoonful of Thyme for a blog. She had all kinds of recipes, but I choose the Blueberry Lemon Pound Cake because something about it had me saying “SUMMER” and I wasn’t disappointed.
The lemon isn’t overpowering at all. There’s just a hint of it so I could sneak it by my hubby. That’s right the man that doesn’t like blueberries or lemon actually liked this!
My mom stopped in to see baby Kinzee and this was fresh out of the oven so she snatched a piece and raved about it also. If you are looking for something fresh and summery for a treat I highly recommend this!
