What could be better for breakfast, brunch or dessert than this sweet and tangy Meyer lemon blueberry butter cake?
This is a variation of my Butter Cake that I first posted using apples, and then again with Pineapples, I don’t think there are many fruits that it wouldn’t go with well, there is just something magical about butter and how well it works with this cake. If you remember I had a bag full of Meyer Lemons that I used to make my Lemon Gelato with and I kept thinking about a lemon cake. When I walked into Wegman’s and saw the display of fresh blueberries I knew right away what I wanted to make. I do love how blueberries just naturally go with lemons, and I knew they would even be better with the Meyer Lemons, and I wasn’t disappointed!
The sweet tartness of the Meyer Lemon in that buttery moist cake would have been enough on its own, but with the addition of the plump, juicy blueberries it was beyond my expectations, simply delicious, and as it sat it became even more dense, moist and flavorful! If you have any Meyer lemons on hand, you have try this cake I know your family and anyone you share it with will be glad you did!
