Blueberry Lemon Pound Cake is a yummy dessert to serve your family.

Fresh, plump, juicy berries. Moist tender cake with a hint of lemon. While a lot of pound cakes are made in Bundt pans, I like how this one is formed in a loaf pan. Sweet and simple. Unassuming, but oh so delicious.

Blueberry Bushes from Gurney's Seed

This is a great recipe to make when blueberries are at the height of their season, when berries can be purchased for under $2 a pint. Or if you’re really motivated, try planting your own bushes. Visit Gurney’s Seed and Nursery Catalog for Planting Ideas.

I’m sure you’ve heard the tale that if you eat pound cake, you’ll gain a pound of weight. But unlike most pound cake recipes, this recipe uses less than half a pound of butter–so you have reason to be happy!
