Blueberry Swirl Pound Cake with Lemon Glaze, bright and sunny flavor of lemon, bursting with a sweet blueberry swirl.
You know how I love Pound Cakes. After deciding to make a Blueberry Swirl Pound Cake with Lemon Glaze, I shook things up by adding Greek yogurt coconut oil to this pound cake!
Yes, coconut oil in a pound cake! But, don’t get excited thinking it’s ‘healthy’. I only replaced part of the butter with coconut oil, the recipe still has butter in it.
Even with Greek yogurt and coconut oil, my Blueberry Swirl Pound Cake with Lemon Glaze still had the same wonderful texture of a traditional pound cake. It had that nice crust with a dense, small crumb center. As well, the blueberry flavor is not a strong flavor in this cake.

Blueberry Swirl Pound Cake with Lemon Glaze
- First things first, when it comes to measuring flour, a cup is not always a cup. Please read this post on how to correctly measure flour.
- It takes a little patience to make. You’ll need to cream the butter and sugar until it’s light and fluffy.
- Also, add the eggs one at a time, sometimes I want to dump them all in at once, but resist the urge.
- Finally, allow the cake to cool at least 20 minutes in the pan before inverting it onto a platter.
- Complete detailed instructions are below in the recipe box.
