Last year when I visited my sister in Michigan she made me a fantastic dessert with fresh Michigan blueberries, a blueberry almond bundt cake. She and I have always loved to cook and she whips up some pretty amazing things in her kitchen. This was no exception.

The cake was dense and sweet and the blueberries filled out the taste with their own innate flavor. Then she really kicked it up a notch and drizzled a lemon glaze over it then sprinkled almonds on top. Wow! I am so drooling as I write this. The really great thing about this super yummy cake is that it’s easy to make and can be served for breakfast, brunch or dessert.

Now take a bite! The cake is moist and rich with an almond flavor that just explodes on the tongue. The blueberries burst with flavor and are the perfect foil to the tartness of the lemon glaze. It really is a show stopper!
