Reviewed Apr. 15, 2016

"Excellent! Very moist indeed. Pound cakes are supposed to be a bit dense. In regards to the comments stating "I don't know who is rating this, etc., etc." What on earth does that mean? Are you implying that the scores of us who enjoyed success with this recipe are all liars or culinary morons? I am tired of the bitter, snide comments from folks with bad manners. Recipes don't turn out for many reasons-everything from flour being a bit old, to outdoor/indoor temperature and moisture fluctuations, to a cook who doesn't measure dry ingredients properly. There is no reason to insult people over a recipe."

"This cake was NOT moist at all..............very dry & heavy. I do not know who is rating this and thinks this was moist or delicious. All I know is I wasted a lot of ingredients & money baking this cake - NONE of my family enjoyed this & usually my baking is devoured."

"Amazing, moist and delicious. I used Partridge Berries (Newfoundland) and it was great. However, the lemon would be a better combination with the sweetness of the blueberries than Partridge Berries or Cranberries."

"I don't know who is rating this because both my mom and I made this and had issues. The outer edges were very crusty for both of us. Mine took 90 minutes to bake and the center was still too soft. (No my oven is not off) Not enough lemon taste, perhaps a lemon extract rather than vanilla might work. I'd be interested to trying to make it in a loaf pan instead of the fluted pan."

"This cake is delicious-moist and flavorful. I added a bit more fresh lemon zest to the cake batter and also added some on top of the cake after I drizzled it with the icing. I will definitely make this again."

"I have been making this recipe since it was put in the Taste of Homes magazine... and my family and I love it every time!! I have adjusted it by putting a little more blueberries and lemon zest because my Mum loves more blueberries. Other than that, I have had no problem with the recipe. Plus it smells awesome when baking and in the winter when making it, heats the house up real well. Would recommend to ladies that want to impress their friends with this delightful, delish, springy tasting Bundt cake!"

"Made this for Easter dinner. Excellent! Followed recipe exactly except that I added 1 tsp lemon extract and cut vanilla extract to 1 tsp. A little dense but very moist cake and blueberries were evenly distributed and did not sink to the bottom. Also added extra lemon zest to cake and to the icing as well- perfect! Everyone had a second slice- will definitely make again!"

"Wow! My husband flipped over this cake! I did not have a tube pan, so I used two 9" round pans. I expanded on the glaze to make it into a frosting: I added 4 oz of cream cheese, and 5 or so tablespoons of butter and whipped it all together. This made an excellent cake perfect."
