I love blueberries and lemon is always yummy. I seen this cake in the Tesco magazine it looked soooooooooo yummy and had that drool effect to it! It was for Mothers day and what a perfect cake to make for the all the mothers out there!

My mum choose this recipe from a range of few I had given her to make for her wedding anniversary get together. Obviously my mum would choose this as it has lemon in! I think my mum has made me like lemon a lot more so I was really excited about it and glad she chose it too. One of the things I love about blueberries is when you see the blueberries burst in a cake and you see those amazing streaks from the burst berries. Blueberries have that nice sweet, yet tart taste and I do think they work really well with lemon.

This cake was so scrummy, it was so moist and you could taste the blueberries and lemon. I would definitely be making it again. Everyone enjoyed it so it was a hit.
