Before I start with how to make blueberry lemon cake, moist and soft, the easiest way, here I share the photo of first lemons and bay leaves arrived to our home from the southern islands.

The package arrived on 6th of January this year. I used these lemons to make this lemon blueberry cake. Bay leaves are resting in shade to dry for future uses. 😊

This recipe is great since it’s „know – how“ is so easy and you don’t have to worry if blueberries will sink to the bottom of your pan or not.

It seems to me a lot of us have the problem with the fruits weigh the cake down. Well, this one, solves it just fine !

In this dessert, blueberries are already on the bottom, once you pour the syrup into it. What follows is tangy irresistible lemony batter gently covering the syrup. It is so full of freshly squeezed lemon juice and zest . No need to add  lemon extract!

During text preparations, some questions popped out, so here are the most important, at least to my point of view :

 

Can you use frozen blueberries to make a cake?

Blueberries are often baked or made into jam when they’re overripe and too soft, so yes, you can absolutely use frozen berries for baking. Thaw frozen blueberries and drain excess juice before starting the process.

 

Can you freeze a cake with fresh fruit?

Yes! Fruit cakes freeze perfectly. If you pack them in single portions even better! Let the cake cool completely before you start cutting and packing. Wrap it tightly in plastic wrap, place in freezer bag and freeze up to 4 weeks.

 

Does Blueberry Lemon Cake need to be refrigerated?

No. as I have written in my Boozy Chocolate Cake Bread fridge dries out the precious moist of the cake.
