Blueberries and Lemon are the challenge ingredients this month at Lady Behind the Curtain recipe challenge. You know how I love Pound Cakes, but I didn’t want to make a regular ole pound cake for this challenge. Of course, I had to use the specified ingredients. I decided on the Blueberry Swirl Pound Cake with Lemon Glaze. I shook things up a little this time not only with the addition of blueberries and lemon. For the first time ever, I added Greek yogurt AND, wait for it……………….coconut oil!!!
Yes, coconut oil.
In a Pound Cake!!
Now, don’t go getting all excited thinking it all Healthy or Skinny!
I did use the yogurt instead of sour cream, 100%.
I did not, however, replace all the butter with coconut oil.
Yes, I was chicken.
I only replaced 1/2 cup of butter with the coconut oil. I’ll get more brave with this, I promise.
It still had the same wonderful texture. I could not tell any difference in the traditional way I make this or with these new ingredients! In the spirit of full disclosure, I could not taste much of the blueberry flavor. Next time I’ll add more, however, the recipe below is exactly the proportions that I made used.
