Lemon Cake with a Blueberry Twist

Lemon Cake with a Blueberry Twist

Summer tastes like sweet mango and tangy citrus at my home. As we deep-dive into hot sweltering days, I decided to bring back an instant classic.

Lemon cakes are perfect for a lazy morning with a hot cuppa  or peaceful teatime munching.
Each slice is light, airy, and delicious!

What’s inside this humble cake?

This sweet-tangy lemon cake is a simple treat for non-chocolate lovers.

It elevates the plain Bundt cake with the addition of zesty lemon that layers each bite.

If you want to turn things up a notch, you can whip up my fruity blueberry glaze for garnish.
