Blueberry Lemon Cake

I love baking with ingredients that are in season. Fresh local blueberries make this cake delicious. I am making this for my Dad as he loves anything lemon and the combination of blueberries and lemon is classic.

Blueberry Lemon Cake

In a large mixing bowl, cream together:

  • 1/2 cup softened butter
  • 1/2 cup canola oil
  • 1 and 3/4 cup sugar

In a separate bowl sift together dry ingredients:

  • 3 cups flour
  • zest of 3 lemons
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt

In another bowl mix together wet ingredients:

  • 3/4 cup plain unsweetened yogurt (equivalent to 3 eggs)
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice

Alternate the wet ingredients and the dry ingredient into the butter and sugar mixture. Mix together  well. Then fold in:

  • 1 and 1/2 cups blueberries (Tip: If you dust the berries in flour they won’t all fall to the bottom)

Bake 350 degrees F for approximately 40-45 minutes. I baked this in a tube pan but you could also use a 9 by 13 pan or two 9 inch rounds. Cool and top with frosting of your choice. This cream cheese frosting is delicious with it!

Cream Cheese Frosting:

Mix together, adding the icing sugar in last:

  • 1/4 cup softened butter
  • 1 pkg (250g) softened cream cheese
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • pinch salt
  • 3 cups icing sugar (or more if needed)
