Think of this lemon blueberry bundt cake as a no-fail, classic homemade bundt cake that’s perfect for any occasion.

Bursting with brilliant blueberries, the effortless cake is tender and buttery with a nice crumb (similar to blueberry pound cake). For a bright finish, add a drizzle of sweet and tangy lemon glaze.

Blueberry Lemon Bundt Cake

Tips for the Perfect Blueberry Bundt Cake:

  • Spray your bundt pan thoroughly (including the center tube) with nonstick spray containing flour, just before adding the batter.
  • Tap the pan sharply (at least 5 times) to help settle the batter and prevent air bubbles.
  • Bake cake until golden and the top springs back to the touch. A toothpick inserted in the center should come out clean or with a few crumbs attached.
  • Once the cake is baked, let it rest in the pan on a wire rack for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes, carefully invert the bundt pan onto the rack. If the cake doesn’t drop out of the pan immediately onto the rack, gently but firmly tap the top of the pan to help the cake release.
  • Let the cake cool completely on a wire rack before drizzling with lemon glaze.
  • To make individual blueberry lemon bundt cakes, use a mini bundt cake pan. Depending on the size of the pan, this recipe will make 6 to 8 mini bundt cakes. Baking time will be approximately 24 to 26 minutes.

Serving Suggestions

I love serving this cake topped with sweet berries, and if you feel so inclined to serve up slices with scoops of homemade vanilla ice cream or dollops of whipped cream, I’d never stand in your way!

Also: I must confess that I indulged in a leftover slice with my coffee this morning and found it to be quite breakfast-worthy. Here’s to cake!

Make Ahead Tips

This bundt cake can be made one day in advance. Let cool completely and store at room temperature overnight. Add the lemon glaze just before serving.

How to Freeze

You can make this cake in advance. Once fully cooled, wrap in plastic wrap and then wrap again in foil or place the wrapped cake in a freezer bag and freeze up to 2 months

The day before you plan to serve, let the cake thaw overnight in the refrigerator (still wrapped to prevent condensation), then bring to room temperature. Glaze just before serving.

Description

Golden and buttery blueberry lemon bundt cake is a classic bundt cake recipe! Bursting with blueberries and fresh lemon flavor, you’ll love this easy blueberry bundt cake drizzled with lemon glaze. Made with softened butter and buttermilk, the crowd pleaser cake is perfectly moist and tender.


Ingredients

Cake

  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 tsp aluminum-free baking powder*
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 10 Tbsp unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 1 1/4 cups granulated sugar
  • 2 Tbsp fresh lemon zest
  • 1 Tbsp lemon extract
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs, at room temperature
  • 1 cup buttermilk, at room temperature
  • 1 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 1 1/3 cups fresh blueberries

Glaze

  • 1 Tbsp unsalted butter, melted
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp fresh lemon zest
  • 3/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 Tbsp milk

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Make cake: Whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a medium bowl; reserve one tablespoon flour mixture to toss with blueberries.
  3. Beat butter, sugar, and lemon zest in a large mixer bowl on medium speed until pale and fluffy. Mix in lemon extract and vanilla extract. Reduce speed to low and add eggs one at a time. Combine buttermilk and lemon juice in a small bowl. Beat in flour mixture in three additions, alternating with buttermilk mixture (begin and end with flour mixture), just until incorporated. Toss blueberries with reserved flour mixture and gently fold into batter with a rubber spatula.
  4. Spray a 10-cup bundt pan generously with baking spray containing flour. Spoon batter into prepared bundt pan and smooth with an offset spatula. Tap pan sharply to reduce air bubbles.
  5. Bake bundt cake for 45 to 50 minutes, until cake is golden, springs back to the touch, and a tester inserted in the center comes out clean or with a few crumbs attached. Cool in pan on a wire rack for 10 minutes; carefully invert onto rack and cool completely.
  6. Make glaze: Whisk together melted butter, salt, lemon zest, powdered sugar, and milk in a small bowl. Drizzle glaze over cooled cake and let set before serving.
  7. Store leftovers in an airtight container at room temperature for 1 to 2 days, or refrigerate up to 3 days.


Notes

Baking powder: Use an aluminum-free baking powder to keep your cake from turning blue.

Frozen blueberries: Add straight from the freezer without thawing. Frozen blueberries will add additional moisture and increase the baking time by at least 5 minutes.

Make Ahead: You can make the cake in advance. Once fully cool, wrap well in plastic wrap and a freezer bag and freeze up to 2 months. The day before serving, move the cake to the refrigerator (still wrapped to prevent condensation) and defrost overnight. Bring to room temperature, remove plastic wrap, and add the lemon glaze.

  1. If I’m going to bake…the first place I start is Tutti Dolci website. Her recipes are easy to follow, I generally have all the ingredients and once baked are magical!

    This Blueberry Lemon Bundt cake does not disappoint. When I took it out of the oven it smelled wonderful! Once cooled and inverted, I couldn’t wait to have a taste nor could my husband.

    The first day we ate a quarter of it, then we knew I’d better take half of it to my daughters house or it would be gone before you know it.

    This cake would be great to serve at breakfast seriously, brunch with friends, or a great dessert with hot tea or a glass of Chardonnay! Thank you for a great recipe!






  2. It’s a perfect cake, well balanced, flavourful and just turns out great every single time. I’m making it again for a get together tomorrow!!






    1. Hi Angela, you can use frozen blueberries, your baking time may just vary a bit. Add them to the batter frozen, without thawing first. Happy baking! 🙂

  3. This recipe turned out absolutely amazing! I divided the batter between two smaller bundt pans to make two cakes.






    1. Hi Sabine, I recommend buttermilk because it makes the cake nice and tender. Alternatively, you can use regular milk.

    1. Hi Caitlin! Yes, you can make this bundt cake in advance. Once the cake is fully cooled, wrap very well and freeze. The day before you want to serve, pull the cake out of the freezer and let thaw in the refrigerator overnight (still wrapped). On the day you plan to serve the cake, move to your kitchen counter (still wrapped) and let come to room temperature before adding the glaze. This method of slow thawing will prevent any extreme temperature changes, and should prevent the cake from getting soggy. Hope that helps!

  4. The cake was wonderfully moist and buttery and lemony. Couldn’t stop eating it Thank you so much for this recipe!






    1. Thanks Rachel, glad you liked this recipe! If you freeze it, I would wrap it well (unglazed), and then just add the glaze when you’re ready to serve. Hope that helps! 🙂
