How to make Blueberry Lemon Pound Cake

Begin by preheating the oven to 350°F (180°C) and greasing a 9×5-inch (23x13cm) loaf pan, lining it with parchment paper. Next, whisk together the flour, salt, and baking powder in a medium bowl, and set it aside.

In another bowl, mix the sugar with lemon zest to release the lemon oils. Then, add the butter and vegetable oil, mixing until creamy. Gradually incorporate the eggs one at a time, followed by the vanilla extract, mixing until combined.

With the mixer on low speed, gradually add the flour mixture alternating with buttermilk, until everything is well incorporated. In a medium bowl, toss the blueberries with a tablespoon of flour until coated, then gently fold them into the cake batter.

Pour the batter into the prepared pan, smoothing the top. Bake for 50-55 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Allow the bread to cool slightly, then dust with powdered sugar before serving.
