Blueberry-Lemon Bundt Cake

vegan-blueberry-lemon-bundt-cake-1
I’ve been thinking about how much baking I do with blueberries in the summer months. It’s not quite summer and there aren’t any sweet blueberries yet to bake with. That doesn’t stop me from craving blueberry sweetness.

I had to cave in to my cravings and buy some frozen blueberries to make this bundt and I’m happy I did. My neighbors are once again 1/2 vegan (1/2 the family is, 1/2 isn’t). Their diet change inspires me to to bake a little differently more often. I’m always very satisfied with the results of my vegan baking experiments. I never miss the eggs or the dairy products. I’ve been trying to cut back on dairy in my diet and it’s been a challenge since I’m a cheese lover (anyone else love cheese as much as I do?Raise your hand HIGH!). 

This beautiful Blueberry-Lemon Bundt Cake is a vegan idea for my month of bundt baking. If you aren’t cutting back on dairy or are vegan, you could use real buttermilk and use 2 eggs instead of the flaxmeal mixture.

If you’re not familiar with baking vegan, you may assume that this is a dry cake. I know. I used to also think it’s impossible to bake a moist cake without eggs, butter, and regular dairy products. This cake is moist. Very moist and delightful. Delightful enough to want to bake all summer long with your fresh berries or any time throughout the year. 

Blueberry-Lemon Bundt Cake
adapted from It Ain’t Meat, Babe

Ingredients

3 cups all-purpose white flour
1 tsp baking powder
3/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 cup margarine (I used Earth Balance)
1 1/2 cups raw sugar
juice and zest of one lemon
3 tbsp flaxmeal mixed with 9 tbsp water
1 cup buttermilk (I used almond milk mixed with one tsp white vinegar. let it sit for a few minutes and you have vegan buttermilk)
1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Grease and flour your bundt pan (regular 12 cup bundt pan). I personally prefer to use baking spray for bundt pans.

In  large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.

In another bowl, cream margarine with sugar. Mix in the lemon juice and lemon rind. Slowly add the flaxmeal mixture. Mix on medium speed until combined. Stop the mixer to scrape the sides of the bowl with spatula to combine all the ingredients.

On low speed, mix in 1/2 the flour mixture. Scrape down the sides of the bowl to incorporate. Add in the buttermilk and beat on low speed until incorporated followed by the remaining flour mixture. Scrape down the sides of the bowl to incorporate.

Gently fold the blueberries into the batter.

Pour the batter into prepared pan.

Bake for 45-50 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean and the top springs back when lightly pressed.

Allow cake to cool for 10 minutes in the pan, then turn cake out onto a wire rack to cool completely.
Hope you have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend:) Thank you for your comments and support.

  17. Thanks for the absolutely beautiful recipe Lora :)
    I have to bake this one today itself..
    One doubt though.. what should be the consistency of the batter. Would really appreciate if you could share some information about the consistency of the batter and if possible, few pictures too :)

  18. This sounds delicious Laura! I love that it is vegan, and it is so beautiful! Blueberries and citrus are so delicious together :)!

  19. This looks so good. I was going to try this with Donna Hay's lemon cake where she tips it out hot and then drizzles barely mixed sugar and lemon juice and lets the hot cake melt the sugar into a crunchy glaze. I love your idea of the blueberries in it!

    I keep saying I want to try it but my lazy bones haven't gotten there yet.

  24. I have always love the look of bundt cakes. Not sure why I have not got around to using the bundt pan I have. I really love it when there are berries incorporated into baked treats. This is perfect.. thanks for sharing. Now I can bake this for my vegetarian friends too. Take care now.. xoxo

  25. I love blueberry-lemon cakes, love them and this one looks amazing, Lora! Fresh blueberries are not local where I am so very expensive so I often use frozen which, anyway, I find much more flavorful. Beautiful recipe.

  33. Love this cake! Perfect for my son with multiple food allergies. Made it for National Bundt Day yesterday, but didn't have a lemon on hand. Used about a tablespoon of freshly grated ginger and increased the liquid. Turned out great. Look forward to trying it again with lemon. Thanks for the recipe.
