Hi there, Kenarry readers! It’s Kelly from Typically Simple and I’m back with another delicious dessert recipe! Now usually I share pretty simple recipes that can be thrown together in about 10-15 minutes, like the Monster Cookie Bars and Apple Crisp. However, this time I’m sharing a yummy pound cake recipe that takes a little more time, but let me tell you – it’s definitely worth it!

With blueberry season just around the corner, this is a perfect dessert to bake with fresh blueberries! It’s also equally yummy with frozen blueberries, which I decided to use when I made this since the stores around here do not have many fresh berries quite yet.
There’s just a hint of lemon flavor in the pound cake itself, so I decided to add a little lemon glaze to the top of the cake. It is the perfect balance of tart and sweet! I also served it with a dollop of whipped cream to add a little more sweet to the mix.
Lemon Blueberry Pound Cake Recipe
- mixing bowls
- measuring cups
- measuring spoons
- hand mixer
- spoons or rubber spatula
- bundt cake pan
- cooking spray
- 2 and 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup (2 sticks) butter, room temperature

Preheat oven to 350.
In a small mixing bowl, whisk together the flour with baking powder and salt. Set aside.
In a larger mixing bowl, cream together the butter, brown sugar, and white sugar on high speed. Add the eggs one at a time, mixing thoroughly after each egg. Beat in vanilla extract.
On low speed, add flour mixture a little at a time, alternating with the greek yogurt. So about 1/3 of the flour mixture, mix, half the greek yogurt, etc.
In a separate bowl, toss the two cups of blueberries with a little flour to coat them. Fold into the batter.
Generously coat the bundt pan with cooking spray and spread batter into pan.
Bake cake for about 60-70 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean.
Cool completely before removing from pan.

To make the lemon glaze, just add a few tablespoons of lemon juice to a cup or two of powdered sugar and mix well. I used 3 tbsp lemon juice and 1 1/2 cups of powdered sugar to make mine and it was a good consistency that drizzled nicely over the cake.
Cover tightly with saran wrap until you are ready to serve it.
