A SUPER Moist Blueberry Cake

As a baker living in New England I can always appreciate discovering a new and successfully delicious recipe that calls for blueberries. I adore baking with fresh blueberries.  Baking with frozen blueberries isn't too shabby either.....especially if I have picked them fresh myself and frozen them for later use.

I whipped up this lovely blueberry yumminess of a cake with some freshly picked blueberries.  And the recipe that I used did not disappoint.  The cake came out with a wonderful flavor and gorgeous texture.  What more could you ask for in a cake?!  I do have to say that having both yogurt and sour cream as ingredients in this recipe leaves NO room for a dry cake.  This cake is super moist.  Greek or regular yogurt can be used along side the sour cream.  I chose to use Greek lemon yogurt as I thought it was pair well with the blueberries.  Plain or vanilla Greek yogurt would work fine too if you wish to tone down the lemon flavoring in the cake.

  I do have to admit that I was patting myself on the back when I took my first bite of this cake as it tasted SO good.  I remember thinking, "Goodness, I could sell this cake with NO problem!" - meaning that it came out so nicely that I envisioned setting up shop in front of my house and holding out a sign advertising "Blueberry Lemon Cake For Sale" because I was so impressed with the cake.  I highly recommend you make this cake yourself! 

I topped off the cake with a dusting of powdered sugar.  Next time I think I will drizzle it with a lemon glaze. YUM.
