What’s more is that this beautiful cake is baked in a Jubilee Bundt Cake Pan. While you can definitely make this cake with excellent results in a regular bundt cake pan, this cake is extra festive served in this nontraditional form.
What I love about this pan is that there are little “pockets” to hold delicious the delicious glaze. They are also perfect for the blueberry and lemon zest garnish. You can move the cake with ease without worrying about blueberries rolling all over the place.
This is one pan I can guarantee you’ll be using over and over again! And your guests are going to love their pockets of frosting. Plus, it’s non-stick! I use mine all the time even for simple things like meatloaf or decorative cheese rings. Get your Jubilee Cake Pan on Amazon here!
How to Make Blueberry Lemon Bundt Cake
You don’t have to have a Jubilee Cake Pan to make this cake. It can also be made in a standard round bundt cake pan.
First, whisk together the dry ingredients and set aside. Then cream together the butter and sugars, adding in the eggs, vanilla, lemon juice, and lemon zest. Alternate adding the dry ingredients along with the greek yogurt, then fold in the blueberries that have been tossed with flour. Lastly, spread evenly into bundt pan.
Bake until a toothpick inserted in cake comes out clean. This can vary from oven to oven, so be sure to start checking your cake about an hour into baking. Cool in pan, then cool completely on a wire rack.
Honey Lemon Glaze
What makes this bundt cake so incredibly delicious is the honey lemon glaze. By adding just a touch of honey to the traditional glaze, you add depth to the flavor with a not-to-sweet finish.
Whisk together the honey, lemon juice, zest, and milk. Stir in the powdered sugar until you get the consistency you want. You want the glaze pourable, but not too runny. Finish the cake by pouring the glaze over top and garnishing with blueberries and lemon zest.
Tips for Making Blueberry Lemon Bundt Cake
- Use room temperature ingredients. This will help the bundt cake batter come together.
- If you forgot to bring your sticks of butter to room temperature, you warm them slowly in the microwave. Just microwave in five second intervals, stopping to turn the stick of butter on every side. Be carful not to melt the butter. You want it softened, not melted.
- Toss the blueberries in flour before folding them in the batter. This will ensure that they don’t all sink to the bottom of the cake.
- Moreover, you can use frozen blueberries for the cake as well. Just thaw and add to the batter. Fresh blueberries are best for the garnish.
- However, be sure to always use fresh lemon juice. The pre-squeezed juice just isn’t the same.
- Use a Jubilee Cake Pan to get this decorative finish on your cake!
- A regular bundt pan works well too, just press the fresh blueberries into the glaze to get them to stick to the cake.
