Blueberries Buttermilk Bundt Cake
蓝莓酪乳Bundt 蛋糕

September mid-term school holiday has passed quietly. As we did not plan to go anywhere in such a short period, kids stayed at home most of the time, and I went to work as usual. Without the pressure of waking up at 6am in the morning, I stayed up late on a weekday and baked my 2nd Bundt cake.
 
 
Some left-over blueberries have been in my freezer for months. I used them mostly in cheesecake and muffins. Looking at my newly bought Bundt pan,  Blueberries Bundt cake poped up in my mind.

Since these blueberries tastes a bit sour, I decided to use my favorite Lemon Buttermilk Bundt Cake recipe,  and replace lemon with blueberries.  As expected, the Bundt cake turned out so tender and moist! Blueberries evenly distributed within the cake, nicely moderated the sweetness of the cake. Without cutting the cake, you can't tell it has some blueberries inside. I did not prepare the glaze as the fresh cake iteself tastes finger lickin' good!
