Lemon and Blueberry Cake

lemon blueberry cake

I have to say – this is my new favourite cake! I made it to take with us to Anglesey on Monday, where we met up with friends. I baked it Sunday morning before we went to the Bailey Hill festival and it smelt amazing when it was cooling – it took all of my willpower not to cut a slice right then! We had a slice after lunch on Monday and oh boy it was so good. Light and moist, with a great texture. The lemons and blueberries go so well together, and I’m always a fan of cream cheese frosting! It was such a quick and easy cake to make to – will certainly be making it again and soon!

    Polly, this looks so tasty! Did you use one of those cake tins with the base that comes out, or a spring form one? I always choose the wrong one!

      I used the one with a loose base :)

    This looks delicious but typically I’m trying to be good right now so cakes and anything sweet are off the table for me right now BUT when i decide I want something sweet (as a treat) I may need to come back and recreate this for myself! ha! x
