Ever had a craving for something sweet and lemony and blueberry and heavenly? Well, I did and I knew the only way to fulfill this craving was to bake a cake. Thanks to my boyfriend’s mother, I now have a fantastic baking set that’s been patiently waiting to create delicious desserts. After searching for what seemed like hours (realistically maybe 10 minutes) I found the perfect recipe from Sally’s Baking Addiction!
This cake was AMAZING and hit every single craving we had. I have two pieces of advice: 1) make sure you don’t over mix the cake or it will be a bit dense and 2) don’t eat the cake for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
