TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 45 min. + cooling YIELD:12 servings

Ingredients

  • 1-1/2 cups butter, softened
  • 1-3/4 cups sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon grated lemon peel
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 3 cups cake flour
  • 2-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup lemonade
  • 1-1/2 cups fresh or frozen blueberries
  • BLUEBERRY SAUCE:
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries, thawed

Directions

  • 1. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in lemon peel and vanilla.
  • 2. Combine the flour, baking powder and salt; add to creamed mixture alternately with lemonade, beating well after each addition. Fold in blueberries.
  • 3. Pour into a greased and floured 10-in. fluted tube pan. Bake at 350° for 45-50 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 20 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack to cool completely.
  • 4. In a small saucepan, combine cornstarch and sugar. Stir in water until smooth. Add blueberries; bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly. Cook and stir 1 minute longer or until thickened. Serve warm with cake. Yield: 12 servings (1 cup sauce).
Editor's Note: If using frozen blueberries, use without thawing to avoid discoloring the batter.
