How to Make Blackberry Lemon Bundt Cake
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
Using a baking spray with flour, spray the bottom, sides, and “tube” of a Bundt® cake pan.
Zest the lemon. (A zester like the one below scrapes the rind of the lemon to produce the zest.)
In a large bowl, cream the butter and granulated sugar on medium high for 3-5 minutes until light and fluffy.
Add one egg at a time to the butter mixture and mix on medium after each addition.
In a separate bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, and salt.
Add 1 cup of the flour mixture into the butter mixture and mix on low. Then add 1/3 cup of the milk into the butter mixture and mix on low. Continue alternating the addition of the flour mixture (1 cup at a time) and the milk (1/3 cup at a time) into the butter mixture.
Why Alternate Dry and Wet Ingredients?
By alternating the dry and wet ingredients, you keep the batter from “separating”. When the batter separates, the liquid sits on top of the batter instead of properly incorporated into the batter.
Measure and rinse 2 cups of blackberries in cool water.
Set aside 4 blackberries in the refrigerator to decorate the top of cake later.
Add blackberries, lemon zest, and lemon juice into the batter and fold gently.
Carefully spoon or pour the batter into the prepared Bundt® pan. Use a spatula to scrape all the batter into the pan and smooth the top of the batter.
Place the Bundt® pan on the middle rack of the preheated oven and bake for 45-65 minutes until a toothpick comes out clean or with a few moist crumbs. Check the cake at 45 minutes.
Cool the cake in the pan on a wire rack for 15 minutes.
Then, using another wire rack and your oven mitts (the pan will still be hot), flip the pan over onto the wire rack to cool for one hour.
Once the cake cools, you can keep the cake plain, sprinkle powdered sugar over the top, or continue by making a lemon glaze (which I would recommend).
How to Make Lemon Glaze for the Blackberry Lemon Cake
In a small bowl, add 2 cups of powdered sugar.
Add 2 tablespoons of lemon juice to the powdered sugar and whisk to combine into a thick, pourable glaze.
If the glaze is not pourable, slowly add a little lemon juice at a time, to achieve a pourable (but not runny) consistency.
Pour the glaze over the top of the cake. You do not need to “drip” the glaze. Let gravity do the work for you!
While the glaze is still wet, decorate the cake with 4 blackberries. Keep the cake covered and store in the refrigerator until ready to serve.
