Moist, refreshing and lemon-flavored, this sunshiny Bundt cake just couldn’t be much quicker to put together!

My husband and I have blueberry bushes in our backyard, so I developed this dessert using a basic pound cake recipe from my great-aunt. I pick and freeze the berries in 3-cup portions so I can make this yummy cake all year long.

I always serve this beautiful bundt cake when we decorate our Christmas tree. It's not too sweet for the little ones, who can snack on it without getting too full for the "munchie" part of the evening.
“This is the first cake I learned to make more than 30 years ago, and it’s still a favorite of mine,” Michaela Rosenthal jots from Woodland Hills, California. You can freeze any leftover cake and berry sauce for another time.
