Lemon Blueberry Cake
2 1/4 cups fresh blueberries 16 tablespoons (2 sticks) softened butter 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar Grated zest and juice of 2 lemons 3 eggs 3 cups flour 1 cup sour cream 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
The glaze 2 cups confectioners' sugar 1/2 cup lemon juice
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Butter a 10-tube pan.
Spread the blueberries in 1 layer on a sheet pan and freeze for 1 hour. This will keep the berries from sinking to the bottom of the cake.
In a mixing bowl, beat together the butter, sugar, and lemon zest at high speed until light in color. Add the lemon juice, eggs, and 1 cup of the flour. Mix at medium speed until the batter is smooth and well blended. Add the sour cream, another cup of flour, and the baking soda. Mix at low speed until no traces of flour remain.
Combine the frozen blueberries with the remaining cup of flour. Fold this mixture into the batter, which should feel very thick.
Spoon the dough into the prepared tube pan. Bake for 1 hour, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Cool for 15 minutes in the pan.
To make the glaze, mix together the confectioners' sugar and lemon juice until smooth. Drizzle over the cake. Let the cake cool completely before removing it from it's pan.

I love to share my home, my heart and my faith.
As I journey with the Lord through this earthly life it is my prayer that I come to know Him deeper and deeper each and every day.
