Greek Yogurt Blueberry Lemon Bundt

I knew I was going to get around to actually baking with my beloved Greek Yogurt, but I didn’t actually think it was going to be a spur of the moment bundt.

I always bake in such a random fashion, I never know what is coming next. This time I had beautiful, large organic blueberries to use up fast and a ton of lemons. Now, anyone who reads this site knows that I love to pair those together more than anything.

And I saw my bundt pan earlier while I was putting away dishes.

Really, this IS how my mind works most days when it comes to baking. It’s a lot of randomness, dot-to-dot connecting and flying by the seat of my pants.

But this, oh ho ho, this my friends, my dearest readers, is absolutely amazing.

Tangy lemon icing drizzled over an incredibly moist, decadent bundt cake.

Blueberries bursting with flavor with every tart,lemony bite.

Oh my, this cake makes everything all right in my world.

2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour, plus 1 teaspoon for blueberries
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 cup of butter, room temperature
1 cup packed light-brown sugar
1 cup granulated sugar
4 large eggs
1/4 cup of fresh lemon juice
2-3 tablespoons grated lemon zest
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 cup no fat Greek Yogurt
1 1/2 – 2 cups of fresh blueberries

Sift your dry ingredients together in a bowl and set aside for the moment.

Cream the butter in a mixer until it’s light and fluffy.  Mix in the sugars, beating until it’s once again light and fluffy.

Slowly, one by one, beat in the eggs then add in the vanilla extract.

Grate the entire lemon, which should add up to around 2-3 tbsp and mix in next.

Squeeze out 1/4 cup lemon juice and mix into the yogurt thoroughly. This not only adds taste, but thins out the thick Greek yogurt.

Add in 1/3 of the flour mixture and mix in completely. Follow with the yogurt, then flour, then yogurt, then ending with the rest of the flour.

Mix 1 cup of blueberries with flour then fold in gently.

Grease and flour a bundt pan and pour the batter in. Take the remaining 1/2 cup to cup of blueberries and add on to the top, slightly pushing them in. This way your get blueberries throughout the cake instead of only the bottom.

Bake in a 350 degree oven for 50-60 minutes until completely baked through.

Let it cool then glaze it with some amazing Lemon Icing Glaze.

Let the glaze set and enjoy!
