  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour a 10 inch Bundt pan.
  2. In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the lemon extract. Combine the flour, baking powder, and lemon zest; stir into the batter alternating with the milk. I like to use a spatula and stir by hand, mixing just until blended so the batter is not over mixed. Be sure to scrape the bottom and sides of the bowl often. Fold in the blueberries. Spoon the batter into the prepared pan.
  3. Bake for 1 hour in the preheated oven, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Let cool in the pan for at least 10 minutes, then invert onto a wire rack to cool completely.

Excellent recipe! A few changes I made were to use "buttermilk" instead of regular milk by mixing 3/4c milk with 1/4c lemon juice. I added 1T vanilla, and increased the lemon zest to the zest of...

Wonderful pound cake! I've made this twice and found that there's too much batter for a regular 10" bundt pan so I leave almost 2 inches to spare for the cake to rise in the oven. The extra ba...

Great cake and right amount of moistness. I like my lemon desserts really lemony so I used the zest of two lemons. I floured the blueberries as another reviewer also suggested. I added a litt...
