Blueberry Lemon Buttermilk Cake

It’s blueberry season, in case you hadn’t noticed yet. My kids LOVE blueberries.

They will eat them any way they can get them, they are not picky at all when it comes to blueberries. Everything from: desserts, pancakes, muffins, toppings, snacking…you get the idea.

If blueberries are involved, chances are it’ll get eaten and quickly. And requested to make again and again!

I wanted to make something really special with all the blueberries we had but I also didn’t want just blueberries, so I scoured the internet until I found this recipe.

Seriously so good, and moist. The poor cake didn’t even last 24 hours in my house; we had it for dessert, then we had it for breakfast.

We’ll just be honest, we are not opposed to having cake for breakfast, that’s just the way we roll.

If you’re in need of a recipe to put all your blueberries in I recommend this one. You won’t regret it! Just be prepared, you may need to make this cake again and again!

    Would frozen blueberries work?

    • Hi Melanie, I haven’t tried frozen myself but I would think as long as they aren’t too “wet” (maybe blotted off with paper towel) that they would work. Enjoy!
