An easy lemon blueberry bundt cake recipe that whips up in a flash. No electric mixer needed! Perfect brunch recipe for Easter Sunday or Mother’s Day.
STEP #1: Mix the Wet Ingredients
In a large mixing bowl you’ll whisk together the eggs, butter, sugar and lemon zest.
TIP: Instead of milk I always add a little bit of water to my cake batter. This makes for such a light and moist cake!
STEP#2: Mix the Dry Ingredients
Then add the dry ingredients in a small bowl, whisk together and add in thirds to your wet ingredients.
STEP#3: Gently Fold in the Blueberries
Add the fresh blueberries and fold in gently so that they do not break.
STEP#4: Transfer Batter to Bundt Pan
Be sure your bundt pan is a 10-cup pan and has been sprayed well with baking spray. Even if your pan is non-stick, you must have the baking spray!
There are so many crevices with a bundt pan, if you want a flawless release do not rely on butter and flour, the spray works the best.
A great bundt pan is a fantastic tin to have in the “baking equipment arsenal” simply because it does all the work for you! It looks so beautiful and can elevate a simple cake recipe into a beautiful masterpiece.
I really love this classic design by Nordic Ware (the original inventor of the Bundt Cake Tin in the USA) because you can slice both big pieces and small pieces, depending on your guests preferences 🙂 (The link above goes to Amazon where I am an affiliate partner)
Bake your cake at 350F for 45-50 minutes.
How do you know when a bundt cake is baked?
Bundt cakes can be hard to determine when they are fully baked. Simply because the bundt pan is so deep. But I have found the best way to tell is with a long shish kebab skewer!
A toothpick just doesn’t cut it. If it comes out clean after inserting the skewer all the way down into the cake at the center, you are good to go.
STEP#6: Dust with powdered sugar and serve
I love to serve this bundt cake with lightened sweetened whipped cream.
It’s the perfect compliment to the tartness of the berries and lemon zest. Enjoy!
