Tips on nailing this Blueberry Lemon Cake

  1. Sift the flour- This is a really easy step that results in a lighter more fluffy cake crumb. All you need to do is pass the flour through a fine strainer. This helps get rid of any clumps! If you don’t have a strainer, just whisk the dry ingredients and the result will be the same.
  2. DON’T OVER MIX – Once you add the dry and wet ingredients, it is super important to not over mix. This will result in a denser, tougher cake. Who wants that?
  3. Prepare your cake pans– Be sure to cover the bottom of your cake pans with parchment paper and cover the sides with cooking spray or butter.

Let’s breakdown the ingredients

This is a super easy cake recipe. I’m sure you probably already have the majority of Ingredients in your pantry.

  • Room temperature butter
  • White Sugar
  • Brown Sugar
  • Eggs
  • Vanilla
  • Flour
  • Baking powder
  • Lemon zest and juice
  • Blueberries

Does my butter need to be room temperature?

I would always say yes. Butter is a fat. The colder it is, the harder it’ll be. We want the butter to be evenly distributed throughout the batter.

The best way to get your butter at room temperature is to pull it the night before.

Let’s talk cream cheese icing

This icing is nothing fancy but it compliments this cake perfectly. Basically we cream together cream cheese icing, room temperature butter, icing sugar, vanilla, greek, yogurt, milk, pinch of salt. Once the icing is smooth you are done! Smear the icing onto the cooled cakes and top with fresh blueberries and lemon zest. This icing is perfect over this Lemon Blueberry Cake.
