Blueberry Pound Cake

Seriously one of THE best cakes I've ever eaten. My go-to recipe for blueberry cake has always been Grandma B's recipe, but I decided a few days ago that I wanted to try one that is more of a true pound cake. I honestly didn't expect to find anything that came even close to the one that I've always used, but I was pleasantly surprised. This is seriously the best pound cake EVER! Brendan was the most skeptical. His favorite cake has always been Grandma B's blueberry cake, and he was not happy with me that I tried something else. However, after taking one bite he was hooked, too (doesn't mean that we don't still love the original!). He had two very large pieces right then. It's dense, loaded with blueberries, and packed with flavor in every bite. The technique for preparing the pan made me very skeptical, but I followed the directions exactly and it is perfect. The crust is a little crunchy and just what I wanted it to be.

The recipe for this Blueberry Pound Cake can be found here. Try it!! If you love pound cake and blueberries you will definitely not be disappointed. By the way, for the icing, which is not included in the recipe, I just combined powdered sugar and freshly squeezed lemon juice and drizzled it over the top.

Looks like that needs white chocolate chips and a white chocolate glaze... Just sayin.
