Blueberry Bundt Cake with Lemon Glaze

I have been looking for a chance to bake something with berries since a while as berries are showing their heads in our farmer's market. Finally i baked this incredible bundt cake with one of my favourite berry aka Blueberry. Not to forget that i just adore bundt cakes very much. Since i got an original bundt cake pan from my cousin sister which she brought me all the way from USA, i just treasure it. My today's post goes for a super spongy, airy, and soft bundt cake with blueberries, to make this cake more interesting, i prepared an easy breezy glaze with lemon. This is a classic bake though it took me almost a year to bake as i was looking a prefect bundt pan. Coming to this bundt cake, this cake makes an excellent dessert, breakfast or else evening snacks. Served along with a scoop of icecream, this bundt cake makes a fabulous dessert too.

Actually this cake was sitting in my draft for a while and finally i got a chance to post today as am running this week's blogging marathon with Holiday dishes as theme. Since we get fresh blueberries during summer, this cake suits prefect for this theme. An excellent holiday dish to prepare, bake and enjoy with your loved ones. However i couldnt stop adding cream cheese while preparing this cake batter as i want something rich and very soft. Trust me, this cake came out extremely delicious and we couldnt stop enjoying this blueberries loaded bundt cake with our favourite drinks. If you want to bake a fruit loaded cake, trust me you should give a try to this beautiful bundt cake.
