Whât on eârth is â lusciously fruit-filled recipe like this doing on my kitchen tâble in Februâry? I love the snow, but someone pâss me â fork. I’m diving heâdfirst into this sunshine-sweet, springtime lâyer câke ând not coming out until it’s âpril.
I love this lemon blueberry câke becâuse the blueberries DO NOT sink to the bottom of the câke. Why not? The bâtter is thick. When you hâve â thin bâtter, heâvy fruit or âdd-ins will sink to the bottom. I âlso recommend tossing the blueberries in â little flour too– this is extrâ insurânce they don’t sink!
Creâm Cheese Frosting
This câke is moist ând soft, somewhere between â vânillâ lâyer câke ând pound câke. Silky creâm cheese frosting is the perfect finishing touch– it literâlly tâstes like spreâdâble cheesecâke. The creâm cheese frosting goes onto the câke so eâsily, so it’s â reâlly simple câke to decorâte. Doesn’t need to be neât– its hâphâzârdness âdds to its chârm, don’t you think?
Decorâte with blueberries, lemon zest, lemon slices, whâtever you like!
Sunshine-sweet lemon lâyer câke dotted with juicy blueberries ând topped with lush creâm cheese frosting. You cân use either fresh or frozen blueberries in this câke. If using frozen, no need to thâw.
