Personally I’m not a big cake eater, but I absolutely love making them! When I saw this recipe and the pictures of this lemon blueberry layer cake it just looked so moist and delicious I needed to try it.
Blueberries are a favorite fruit of mine and combining blueberries and fresh lemon just sounds so good. Using fresh lemons and buttermilk in the cake make it so moist and give the cake such a great flavor. The cream cheese frosting is also one of the best I’ve ever tasted and gives the cake just the right amount of sweetness. So if you have a party coming up or just want a really nice dessert for after dinner, give this cake a try, you will love it!
