I am the "dessert" girl in the hubster's family. I love it, because I like to bake and then share it so we don't end up eating all of it.
Last year I made an Applesauce Cake from my childhood.
This year I wanted to try something new and more "Eastery-colored"
Also I thought it would be fun to try a Pinterest recipe.
I found the Lemon Blueberry Marble Cake and thought I would give it a go!
For the frosting I had some left over Honey Frosting that I had chilling in the freezer so I thawed it, added quite a bit more powdered sugar and the juice of one lemon.
To build the cake, put down the first layer and then spread 1/2 of the remaining blueberry jam over the top, place the next layer of cake and spread the rest of the jam and top with the final layer of cake. Let sit or cool in the fridge for about 30min then coat with your frosting. Top with some more lemon zest! YUM
I loved this cake and it was a fun surprise for the little nieces when we cut into it as they were not expecting to see a BLUE cake!!
If I were to make this again I would add MORE lemon or try the extract like the recipe says. It was a little bit of a dry dense cake - probably because I used AP flour instead of cake flour.
It was great though don't get me wrong - we all loved it!
