Lemon & blueberry are a beautiful combination for cakes & desserts. The flavours complement perfectly to produce a wonderful tangy flavour.
The cake is wonderfully moist with a beautiful sweet lemon tang flavoured by the lemon zest as well as the lemon juice added into the cake. There is also a subtle coconut undertone. The sweetened blueberry sauce fills the holes poked into the cake to provide a nice blueberry surprise with each slice of cake. Topped with a sweet lemon icing and sprinkled with blueberries provide a delicious cake bursting with flavour.
This cake is great when served with whipped cream and any blueberry sauce that you may have left over after filling the holes in the cake.
This cake has a lemon icing as the topping for the cake as that is my preference. As an alternate, you can save some of the blueberry sauce to mix in with the lemon icing and this will provide a softer marbled icing for the cake. It will also take on the blueberry colour and provide a totally different finish and appearance to the cake. The choice is yours.
