Rich and buttery, this wonderfully moist cake is just perfect for berricilious May. Bursting with fresh blueberries and a touch of lemon zest, this cake is could be served with a cup of coffee or for dessert. If you’re serving it as dessert I totally recommend going the extra mile and enjoying it with a dollop of whipped cream.
- ½ cups butter, softened
- 1 cups sugar
- ⅓ (2.5 oz.) package cream cheese, softened
- 2 large eggs
- 1 cups all-purpose flour
- ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
- ½ tablespoon lemon zest
- ½ cup blueberries
- Preheat oven to 350° and generously grease a bundt pan.
- In a large bowl beat butter at medium speed with a heavy-duty electric stand mixer until creamy. Gradually add sugar, beating at medium speed until light and fluffy. Add cream cheese, beating until creamy.
- Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating just until blended after each addition.
- Gradually add flour to butter mixture. Beat at low speed just until blended after each addition, stopping to scrape bowl as needed.
- Stir in the vanilla extract and lemon zest. Gently fold in the blueberries.
- Pour the batter into a greased and floured bundt pan and bake at 350° for 35 to 40 minutes or until a long wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean.
- Cool in pan on a wire rack 10 to 15 minutes; remove from pan to wire rack, and cool completely (about 1 hour).
