I just love the tart lemons and sweet blueberries in this delicious Gluten-Free Lemon Blueberry Cake. You won’t believe how easy it is to make!
Don’t you think that fresh lemons and blueberries make the perfect pair for summer desserts? When I first created this Gluten-Free Lemon Blueberry cake it started out as a lemon cake. It was very good but something was missing. I kept thinking blueberries might be the perfect companion to this already delicious homemade cake. When I added the berries to the cake batter, I knew I had a winner! The lemons and blueberries lend a tart sweetness to this cake. I added a tart lemon glaze to the top. My, oh my! What a wonderful summertime dessert!
If I am feeding a crowd, I bake this easy dessert recipe in a 9″ x 13″ rectangle glass baking dish. However, it is beautiful made as a Bundt cake! Check out these Bundt Pans on Amazon. Note: be sure you grease your baking pan really well. I like to use olive oil spray. It helps me to get an even coverage in the pan so my cake does not stick!Print
Made with fresh lemons and blueberries, you will love how tart and sweet this gluten-free cake is. It would be delightful to serve at an afternoon tea or bridal shower.
