Blueberry Buttermilk Cake is an absolute favorite! Brainstorming for a cake idea is always fun. Having a general theme is helpful in some ways. When I know what the main focus of the cake will be about I think I’ve got the recipe I will make. And the same thing happens every time. Like it did with this blueberry buttermilk cake.
some notes on this bundt: I mentioned in the beginning of this post that I did think I knew exactly what I’d bake for this berry theme for our bundt group. I knew it would be with strawberries. It actually was the cake I found in the latest Cooking Light magazine. A lighter pound cake in a bundt pan with stunning strawberries adorning the top of it. I couldn’t wait to bake it and had my berries ready. Then everyone got a hold of my strawberries and they were no longer available. My next idea was to use the blueberries I’ve had on hand and loved this cake from Smitten Kitchen. I wanted to stay a little lighter and skip a topping. I’m so glad I did. I had a few blackberries around and tossed them in with the blueberries. My mom said the cake was light and not dense. She said many bundts end up being dense and that this was so moist. It’s true! This cake was moist and had the perfect sweetness from the incredible berries (I cut back the original recipe’s sugar just a little bit). Who knows, I just may end up making the other two bundts sometime this summer.
