My Only Advice

Ever since I saw The Kitchen Sink Recipes' Lemon Blueberry Bundt Cake - I had to have it.

I had to have it in the worst way possible,... but, the last encounter I had with a bundt cake pan ended with decimated cake wallpapering my kitchen. I toiled over how to make this cake outside of a bundt pan, and if a non-bundt version would placate my yearning for it.

Eventually, I purchased the ingredients I didn't have on hand and resigned myself to the unfortunate necessity, only to realize that because of my last fisticuffs with the bundt, it didn't make the one way trip with the family to Utah.

So I began to think what else could satiate my craving, when I found a gleaming $10 bill in my wallet! That was all the overwhelming confirmation I needed that the cake had to be made, and it had to be made in a bundt pan. I didn't even question whether or not Ross would have a bundt cake pan for $9.99, I just knew they would; and they did.

Lemon Blueberry Bundt Cake

In terms of texture and palatability this cake certainly doesn't require a glaze, but if you feel so inclined, it truly adds to the overall beauty and presentation.
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 tablespoon melted butter
Juice from ½ lemon
3 tablespoons water
1 cup powdered sugar
Drape glaze liberally over cake and allow to drip off sides
This delicious cake was worth the travail. It is thick, moist, and creamy all at the same time, while the blueberries burst with flavor and tart apprehension. It has a crumbly outer crust and blends beautifully together with adroit exactness.

My only advice: If you feel compelled to make this cake, do not hesitate.

Now the craving's passed on to me! My experience with Bundt cakes have been hit and miss, too. For some reason, not every nook and cranny gets greased/floured so the cake sticks. Yours came out beautifully! Maybe I should give it another go, this time using the pan I received from my 101 year old foster grandmother! (It would be nice, too, if I found a crisp $10 bill to further motivate me!) 8-D

I've never made a bundt cake, so when I saw yours I was totally inspired to dip my blueberries and
lemon into the huge bowl I have and stir up a cake. Oops! no bundt pan in my enormous stock of
kitchen baking pans. So taking a "cue from you", I went to Ross. There was a bundt cake pan just like yours. Now it's mine, and I can hopefully make one that will look just like the one in the picture.

I got the recipe. So, thanks for all your help!

Oh how I love Ross. I use bundt pans for almost every cake I make. I swear they make even a plain cake mix cake taste yummy. I tried this cake and turned out so good. I even hid some for me to take to work and told everyone it was all gone. Thanks =)

I'm so happy you tried it Linda. I found it just exquisite! I would have hid it too, if I had anyone to compete with. I generally get to eat everything from start to finish!
