I am going to try and post some recipes that we can use this month in our efforts to eat, cook and live fresher. I hope you like this. It is great.

Lemon Blueberry Bundt Cake

Ingredients

  • 2.5 cups of flour and a smidge for dusting the blueberries
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • 1 cup light brown sugar
  • 1 cup of regular old sugar
  • 2 sticks unsalted butter, softened
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 cup or so of sour cream ( I used reduced fat)
  • 2 cups or generous amount of fruit, in this case, blueberries
  • lemon zest, at least 2 tablespoons (personally I think it needs more)
  • a squirt or lemon juice (1/2 the lemon you just zested)
  • confectioners sugar to dust

Ok let’s make it.

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  GENEROUSLY butter and flour your Bundt pan of choice.
  • In a separate bowl whisk together the flour, baking powder and salt.  Hold tight.
  • Then in a mixer, cream butter and sugars until they are fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time until totally mixed in.  Add vanilla and lower the speed.
  • Add the flour in three steps and alternate the sour cream  in between
  • In yet another bowl toss together the blueberries and lemon zest with a few tablespoons of flour to coat.
  • Fold into the batter.
  • Spread into the pan.
  • Bake until a toothpick comes out clean.  This is the dicey part.  It is anywhere from 45-70 minutes depending on your oven.  I suggest start small and you can always add more time, you can’t take it back.
  • Cool it.
  • Dust it.
  • Eat it!

Again, please note you may want to add lemon juice or most zest.  I found it light on the lemon flavor.

About Me

KarenHello and welcome.
I am often asked, “What is Pasta on the Floor?”
Pasta on the Floor is different for everyone. It is a recipe that tells a story and inspires them to try something new. For others, stories of family, joy, loss, and hope engage with them. This brings me a great deal of happiness. I do not take myself too seriously, so be forewarned the subject matter is open and truthful. In many ways, Pasta is a tale of life, and I think you will find familiarity and commonality as you scroll through these pages.
