If you are lucky enough to live in an area where blueberry picking is a traditional summer activity, then this recipe is a great way to use up your bounty. The buttery pound cake is studded with juicy blueberries, perfect for a breakfast treat, afternoon snack, or delicious dessert.
The cake can be baked in a tube cake pan or Bundt pan. You can serve the cake as is, or top with a basic vanilla icing or simply dust with powdered sugar just before serving.
If you have gone blueberry picking and need a few more recipes, or if you’d like to try something similar to this pound cake but slightly different, a blueberry yogurt cake is a good choice. Or, perhaps you are in the mood for a muffin—perfect blueberry muffins or blueberry cream cheese muffins are both great options.
This is one of my favorite desserts to make when we are having our monthly book club meetings during the warmer months as well. All of my girlfriends sit and wait for me to show up, just because they know what’s about to come through the door. If they were only that excited just to see me! I’m thrilled to serve something that everyone likes though. It’s nice to hear the compliments when you’ve come up with a good one!
