Blueberry Pound Cake with Lemon Glaze
from Yankee Magazine
2 cups fresh blueberries (or frozen)
2 tablespoons cinnamon
5 tablespoons sugar
2 1/4 cups sugar
1 cup vegetable oil
3 cups AP flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
1/3 cup orange juice (can also use milk)
1 cup confectioners sugar
2 tablespoons butter, softened
1 tablespoon lemon zest
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour a bundt pan. Mix first three ingredients and set aside.
Mix together additional sugar, oil, and eggs. Add flour and baking powder to mixture. Add salt, vanilla, and orange juice to batter and mix well.
Spread 1/3 of batter into the bottom of the pan. Top with 1/2 of blueberry mixture, forming a ring around the center of the pan. Repeat, ending with the batter.
Bake for 75-90 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool slightly.
Remove cake from pan and plate. Mix confectioners sugar, butter, and lemon zest to make icing and drizzle on cake. Add a little milk if the consistency is too thick.
