Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup butter, softened
  • 4 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 3 large eggs, room temperature
  • 1 large egg white, room temperature
  • 1 tablespoon grated lemon zest
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 cups fresh or frozen unsweetened blueberries
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour, divided
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup lemon yogurt
  • GLAZE:
  • 1-1/4 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 350°. Grease and flour a 10-in. fluted tube pan. In a large bowl, cream the butter, cream cheese and sugar until blended. Add eggs and egg white, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in lemon zest and vanilla.
  • Toss blueberries with 2 tablespoons flour. In another bowl, mix the remaining flour with baking powder, baking soda and salt; add to creamed mixture alternately with yogurt, beating after each addition just until combined. Fold in blueberry mixture.
  • Transfer batter to prepared pan. Bake 55-60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pan 10 minutes before removing to wire rack; cool completely.
  • In a small bowl, mix confectioners' sugar and lemon juice until smooth. Drizzle over cake.
Editor's Note: For easier removal of cake, use solid shortening when greasing a fluted or plain tube pan.
