Best Blueberry Bundt Cake with a Sour Cream Icing
Friends send me recipes like you can not even imagine. I think I need a staff like Martha Stewart, then I may be able to bake three or four recipes at a time! What a dream!
It’s blueberry Season and Maine blueberries are so amazing. I have five quarts, so I have been searching through Pinterest for the perfect recipe. I wanted a Blueberry Sour Cream Bundt Cake and this is what I chose. This is a wonderfully light and fluffy cake with lemon zest and a sour cream lemon glaze. It turned out perfect! I asked hubs to critique it. Well, he is no help, this is what he said, ” MMM not as many poppy seeds as the last one.” WHAT????
I think my voice raised a bit, I said, “There aren’t any poppy seeds in this cake or the last cake I baked, you are off your rocker…” HMMPPPHH, have to find a new critic!!!
Well, I did have six of my daughter’s friends try a piece, they loved it.
P.S. There aren’t any poppy seeds in this cake or any other cakes that I have baked ever…. yet!
