Lemon Blueberry Pound Cake

I love the tangy flavor of lemon in desserts. I’ve been wanting to make a dessert with lemon and blueberries, so I decided to give this Lemon Blueberry Pound Cake a try. I popped this in the oven while  Mr. Blue Eyed Yonder was outside working on new pavers for our patio. I knew he would love to walk into the house and smell this in the oven.

Any recipe that directs you to poke holes in the top so it can absorb the yummy, sugary glaze – you know you’ve got a winner.

This cake is SUPER moist and has a nice tangy top crust. I walked outside to give Mr. BEY a taste test. He started talking as I popped a big bite in his mouth and it sounded something like this. “Is that a blueberry — Mmmmmmmm!”
Guess that pretty much sums it up. Blueberry Mmmmmmmm.
