Any cake that calls for a pound of blueberries is almost guaranteed to be good…and this cake doesn’t disappoint. Each bite is full of flavor…the combination of sweet and tart berries with bright lemon and is the perfect way to start the day.

DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat the oven to 375°
  • Butter 9” springform pan and line the bottom of the pan with parchment paper.

  • Pour half of the batter into the prepared pan and top with half of the blueberries.
  • Repeat with remaining batter and remaining blueberries, and gently push blueberries into the top of the batter.
  • Bake at 375° for 45 minutes (until a toothpick comes out clean)
