Gathered ingredients; 3 sticks butter, 1-8oz cream cheese, 3 c sugar, vanilla, 2 tsp baking powder, 3 c flour, lemon zest and dried blueberries.
Place the butter, cream cheese, sugar and vanilla in large mixing bowl.
Cream ingredients together until smooth and creamy, no lumps are visible.
Zest 1 lemon. Set the zested lemon aside, this lemon will be juiced for the lemon glaze later when the cake has finished baking.
At this point add the lemon zest. Blending the lemon zest with the sugar and butter helps release the oil in the rind which gives it a wonderful lemony taste.
Blend in eggs one at a time.
Add half the flour with the baking powder. Blend until smooth.
Scrape the bowl down and add the remaining 1/2 of the flour. Mix until smooth.
Nicely mixed. Remove from mixer.
For this guide I use one package of 3 oz wild dried blueberries. (2 packages would have been better) gently stir them in by hand.
Batter is ready for a 10 inch tube pan. Pan is prepared with a bakers release spray.
Add the batter to the pan. Spread out evenly through the pan.
Bake at 325f for 1 1/2 hour. Use a toothpick to test for doneness.
Gorgeous golden color. This cake bakes so high, you won't believe it's a pound cake.
When cake has cooled slightly, invert to your favorite plate.
Prepare the lemon glaze; 2 cups of powdered sugar and the juice of 1 - 2 lemons.
Squeeze the juice of one lemon over the powdered sugar then whisk. If this glaze is really thick, add the juice of another 1/2 lemon. The key is to have the glaze flow (video) not runny.
Pour the glaze over the cake, covering the entire top of the cake.
Stands tall, dressed to impress, moist and delicious!
