We have another virtual baby show today! The longer I blog, the more wonderful women I meet. Each blogger brings something unique and different to the table. Cathy from Lemon Tree Dwelling make the most tasty looking desserts, savory appetizer and fun DIY projects. My recent favorites are her Orange Creamsicle Circus Animal Cookies and Skittles Rainbow Fudge. Although I have never met Cathy in person, I hope that one day I can!

Cathy is also BFFs with Lisa from Wine and Glue. Both Lisa and Cathy have babies that are just a couple months apart, and low and behold they are both due around the same time this time around! I can only imagine how fun that must be to be pregnant with your best friend, not only once but twice! Congrats Cathy!

I am a believer that the best thing about parties is the food. I am a total taster. I need to have a little bite of everything. So the decision to make this Lemon Blueberry Bundt Cake for Cathy’s baby shower was not taken lightly! Just about all of my bundt cakes have streusel, so does that make it a coffee cake? I don’t know you decide.

This cake is the perfect spring time treat. There is a bold lemon flavor and plenty of juicy blueberries. I decided that I needed to keep this cake on the lighter side and dust it with powdered sugar instead of a glaze. I think this was the right decision. I mean, we are all looking to save a few calories before bikini season right?

The great thing about this cake is that the fruit can be substituted for raspberries or blackberries! This recipe is built from my grandmother’s sour cream coffee cake. The sour cream helps keeps this cake extra moist. It is a similar recipe to what I did for my Apple Pie Coffee Cake. I just made this last night to bring to an event this week. I have a serious weakness for coffee cake!

  6. Heather O'Grady says

    just made this cake. can’t wait to try it out :)
    one thing wrong with the recipe is, that it doesn’t tell you where to add the lemon zest or lemon juice.
    I added it just before the blueberries went into the batter
