Blueberry Bundt Cake with Lemon Glaze

It is no secret how much I adore bundt cakes.  This Blueberry Bundt Cake with Lemon Glaze is another simple bundt cake recipe, and it is perfect for summer.  The best way to describe this cake is that it is like a big, beautiful blueberry muffin—moist and full of blueberries.  Have a slice for dessert, breakfast, or anytime.

I hope you are enjoying your summer!  I have been busy with vacation, guests, and my kids.  I am baking less than I usually do, so I am not posting as often.  I am also playing catch-up again with comments and with the blogs I follow.  But I will catch up!
