Blueberry Pound Cake

Mid-summer is the time when blueberries are at their best and this berry-laden pound cake is a great way to celebrate the season! Thick, yogurt-enriched cake batter helps to perfectly suspend berries throughout to cake, and that means each slice is loaded blueberry goodness. A dusting of powdered sugar makes this cake pretty, but those with a bigger sweet tooth may prefer a glaze on top. One cup of powdered sugar mixed with two teaspoons lemon juice will amp up the sweetness and citrusy flavor.
