Lemon Blueberry Cream Cheese Pound Cake?! YAHSSS! This cake is unbelievably good! Vibrant and lemony and perfectly paired with sweet blueberries!

Guess what I am doing right at this very moment. Some of you might know because I told you about it last week.

I am most likely on a plane, scared for my dear life, and popping anti-anxiety pills as if they were jelly beans. I’m popping Tums, too! Anxiety gets the best of me.

But I have some serious news for you…

Lemon Blueberry Cream Cheese Pound Cake - Moist and deliciously tender lemon bundt cake studded with fresh blueberries.

While I am away, visiting my beautiful home-country, Macedonia, for an entire month, I am going to have a few absolutely amazing bloggers guest post for me on Diethood! 

Wait till you see what’s coming; cakes, breads, puddings, scones, etc… I think you will want to thank me in the end. 

And, without further ado, I introduce to you the ever-so-wonderful, and oh-so-hilarious, Kita, author of one of the most delicious blogs I have come across, Pass The Sushi.

Lemon Blueberry Cream Cheese Pound Cake - Moist and deliciously tender lemon bundt cake studded with fresh blueberries.

The first thing I thought when Katerina asked me to guest post on her site was, “Crap! I don’t have any awesome wooden backgrounds like she does to take pretty pictures!” Then I thought, “Crap! What do I make for a blog like Katerina’s?”

Told you she was funny!! Smile

Panic followed.

Ok, not real panic, more like a comical panic because when I think of Kate, and Kate’s blog, I think of soft beautiful desserts. Breads that fill your house with that amazing smell while baking, colorful fruits that are healthy and delicious, dangerous desserts that I could easily blame 5 pounds on, family, warmth, far away countries… The list goes on and on. And when I think of Pass the Sushi… Well, I think of explosions and chaos. (Hide it well don’t I?) 😉

So, I really, really tried to come up with a post that would be like something you would find on Diethood. I looked through the recipes and images I have stashed away for something, anything. But nothing felt right. I looked through a mountain of recipes I want to make… Still nothing. Meat pops, deep fried pork chops and mountains of pasta just would not fly around these parts!

Then I saw this beautiful recipe for cream cheese pound cake… and with a little finessing, I think it will fit right in here with all the other beautiful recipes on Diethood.

    This pound cake was so delicious and moist! It was awesome! I’m going to try strawberries in place of blueberries and see how it is.

  2. Fancy Belle

    Any idea of why all of my blueberries floated to the bottom of the pan and made a gummy top to the cake. I followed the recipe/directions exactly so I know that not the case!! Maybe next time I will place the blueberries on top after pouring in the batter and that way they will in the middle by the time it finished cooking.

    1. Kate@Diethood

      HI! This was a recipe contributed by one of my friends; I will forward the question to her. My suggestion: I put the blueberries in flour prior to pouring them into the batter and that helps them stay in the middle as opposed to falling to the bottom. Take care, Kate!

  3. Maggie @ Vittles and Bits

    Ok this post blew my mind b/c Diethood & Pass the Sushi are two of my go-to blogs 🙂 Kate – have an amazing time in Macedonia, and Kita – thanks for sharing this delicious-looking cake!! You ladies are awesome!
