For the cake:

  • 5 Tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
  • 4 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 large egg white
  • 1 Tablespoon grated lemon zest
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 cups fresh blueberries
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour, divided
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup sour cream

For the glaze:

  • 1 1/4 cups confectioners' sugar, sifted
  • 2 Tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest


Make the cake:

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F. Grease and flour a 10-inch (10-cup) bundt cake pan.
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat together the butter, cream cheese and sugar until smooth. Add the eggs and egg white, one at a time, beating well between each addition.
  • Add the lemon zest and vanilla extract and beat until combined.
  • Remove 2 tablespoons of flour from the 3 cups and add it to a small bowl along with the blueberries. Toss them together until the blueberries are well-coated in the flour then set them aside.
  • Sift together the remaining flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Alternately add the dry ingredients and the sour cream to the batter, beating between each addition. Using a spatula, fold in the blueberries then transfer the batter to the prepared cake pan. Bake the cake for 50 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Allow the cake to cool for 10 minutes in the pan before inverting it onto a baking rack to cool completely. While the cake cools, prepare the glaze.

Make the glaze:

  • In a small bowl, whisk together the sifted confectioners' sugar, lemon juice and lemon zest until smooth.
  • Once the cake has cooled completely, pour the glaze atop it. Slice and serve the cake.
