What a cake!! DELICIOUS! Not too sweet - not too heavy - just perfect for Summer! And the glaze is to die for!! Can't wait to make it again! I adapted this recipe from a Family Circle magazine where it was named "The Best Bundt Cake Ever"!! and I believe it's true!!

For people having trouble with blueberries sinking to the bottom, this seems to be a thinner batter. If you substitute 1 cup of sour cream for the 1 cup of buttermilk you will have a nice thick batter, and no sunken blueberries. You could also decrease the flour to 2 1/2 cups that way. This is a good lightly lemon pound cake with blueberries. I increased the blueberries to 3 cups.

I'm sorry to give this cake only 4 stars.. was really looking forward to it with all the rave reviews.. but it wasn't as lemony as I had hoped by far. A very nice fine grained, mild lemon cake which the blueberries compliment nicely (although i would have added more). note: you can also make a delicious and beautiful glaze with ordinary sugar and lemon juice which wll intensify the lemon flavor and poured onto a warm cake leaves a coating of crystalised crunchy bits. I believe it's about 1 cup lemon juice to 1/2 cup sugar.. or sweeten to your taste.
