Glazed Lemon Blueberry Pound Cake

Okay, friend — I have a deep, dark secret that I need to get off my chest. Do you promise not to judge me?

For a very, very long time, I absolutely hated lemon pastries. Wait a sec, what?! I know, I know — I totally understand if you’re judging me right now. I don’t know what it was, but the idea of tangy citrus combined with a sweet treat just wasn’t appealing to me.

Lemon cheesecake, tarts, scones, danishes… you name it, and I would pass it right up. But what I didn’t know? Just how much I was missing out on!



Enter glazed lemon blueberry pound cake. THIS is the recipe that finally changed my mind. Something about the sweetness of the blueberries helped to finally compliment the zesty lemon flavor in the best possible way.

It’s become both one of my favorites to make and my husband’s favorite to enjoy 😉

Glazed Lemon Blueberry Pound Cake

A delicious poundcake filled with zesty lemon and blueberry goodness. The perfect treat for both breakfast and dessert!

Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 45 minutes
Total Time 1 hour

Ingredients

For the Pound Cake

  • 1/2 cup softened, unsalted butter
  • 1/3 cup buttermilk
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 3 tbsp lemon juice
  • Zest of 1 lemon
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries

For the Glaze

  • 2-3 tbsp lemon juice, added to taste
  • 2 cups confectioners sugar

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

  2. Use cooking spray to coat the inside of a 9" by 5" loaf pan. Then, line the pan with parchment paper, hanging over the edges.

  3. Combine lemon juice, lemon zest, and buttermilk in a small bowl. Set aside for later.

  4. In a separate bowl, sift together flour, salt, and baking powder.

  5. In a third bowl, beat together the softened butter and sugar. Then, add each egg separately while continuing to mix the batter.

  6. Keeping your mixer on low speed, slowly add in the dry ingredients. Then, add in the buttermilk mixture. Beat together until the batter is smooth, but be careful not to overmix.

  7. Toss the blueberries together with a few tablespoons of flour. Coating them with the flour keeps them from sinking to the bottom of the pan while baking.

  8. Gently stir the coated blueberries into the batter.

  9. Pour the batter into the lined loaf pan. Be sure to spread the mixture evenly.

  10. Bake at 350 degrees for 40-50 minutes. Keep an eye on your pound cake, as some ovens may take more or less time to fully bake. Once done, completely cool.

  11. Whisk together the lemon juice and confectioners sugar with a fork to create the glaze. Pour over the cake as desired.

There is so much negativity + hurt that happens on social media. But there’s also so much good.

I’m so thankful to have found my tribe through building my coaching business. My people. My virtual BFFs. And I wouldn’t trade this gig for the world. 💖
  • Some days look like this. 👈🏻

I started a new program this week, and every single day I’ve been blown away by just how much 20 minutes can push me to new limits.
—
One workout from this week was ESPECIALLY hard. (Death by burpees, anyone?)
—
Like, tears in my eyes, tough. But I pushed through anyway. This journey is about so much more than just about pushing past physical barriers — it’s about overcoming the mental ones too 💗
—
And even though it was hard, even though it was late, even though every cell in my body was telling me to stop, I did it anyway 💪🏻
—
So take a second a look back on your own week — what tough moment have YOU overcome? ✨
  • If you’ve been following me for basically any amount of time, you know what my biggest struggle is... INSOMNIA! 😩💤
—
This year one of my resolutions is to finally conquer bedtime, once and for all! And a HUGE part of that has been establishing a sleepy time routine ✨🛏
—
Turning the lights down low, putting my phone away, opening a good book have all been a huge part of that — but my new favorite thing? This yummy @teamiblends RELAX tea that’s been helping me calm my mind and prep for a good night’s sleep. 😴
—
Adding this stuff to my night time routing has been a total game changer — and sipping from this freakin’ adorable baby pink tea tumbler is def a highlight! (YES, you can put hot tea in that thing! 🙌🏻)

  • I so vividly remember being that girl on the right.
—
I was beyond spiraling out of control — I was trapped and gaining weight, and navigating the challenges of a postpartum body but with no baby to hold.
—
And yet, I’m not embarrassed for the girl on the right, and I don’t remember her with resentment. Instead, I’m proud of her. Because despite feeling like the walls were closing in on her, she made the decision to fight like hell.
—
This journey’s been a tough and uncertain one. But if there’s one thing I’m sure of, it’s that I wouldn’t change a single thing ❤️
  • My world came crashing down on April 28, 2016 when my beautiful baby girl was born still. The next year was a blur spent hiding from the world with the worst moments of my life playing on a loop inside my head.
✨
But then something clicked — I decided to live fully. For HER. I wanted to be the woman that Emma Rose would have been proud to have as a momma.
✨
And so, I put myself first — and as a result, I found healing through my health and wellness journey.
✨
If you’re in the midst of hardship or grief, working on yourself is probably the last thing you want to do. But I can assure you that IT IS WORTH IT, and you might just find healing along the way.
✨
I promise that the only thing you will regret is not starting sooner 💖

It’s not your finances.
It’s not your crazy schedule.
It’s not your current circumstances.
It’s not that it “just wouldn’t work” for you.
It’s not even your lack of motivation.
—
It’s YOU.
—
It’s time to stop watching, get out of your own way and JUST DO IT.
