Lemon Blueberry Cake






This is a quick lemon cake that benefits from the lovely addition of blueberries. You could leave out the berries if you're after a classic lemon drizzle cake, though the blueberries are heavenly!

I love pound cake, and I have tried a bunch of recipes...this one makes a beautiful cake. The cake rose right to the top edge of the tube pan, but I did have to let it bake about 20 minutes longer than specified, so be sure you test it with a wooden skewer before assuming it's done. I followed the recipe as written with only a few minor changes: added one teaspoon vanilla extract in addition to the lemon flavoring, didn't measure the lemon zest - just used the zest of one large lemon, and added about a cup of diced fresh cherries I had and needed to use. I tossed the fruit with flour, and this kept them distributed throughout the cake without sinking. The cake has a wonderful flavor and texture, and is easy to prepare. This is a good basic pound cake recipe, and you could experiment with other extracts and berries. I'm adding this to my pound cake repetoire!
