For Lemon Glaze:

  1. Preheat the Oven:
  • Preheat your oven to 350°F (180°C). Grease and flour two 9-inch round cake pans.
  1. Prepare Dry Ingredients:
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
  1. Mix Wet Ingredients:
  • In a large mixing bowl, cream together the softened butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in the vanilla extract.
  1. Incorporate Lemon Flavor:
  • Add the lemon zest, lemon juice, and Greek yogurt (or sour cream) to the wet ingredients. Mix until well combined.
  1. Combine Wet and Dry Ingredients:
  • Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mixing until just combined. Be careful not to overmix.
  1. Fold in Blueberries:
  • Gently fold in the fresh blueberries, making sure they are evenly distributed in the batter.
  1. Divide and Bake:
  • Divide the batter equally between the prepared cake pans. Smooth the tops with a spatula. Bake in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  1. Cool the Cakes:
  • Allow the cakes to cool in the pans for 10 minutes, then transfer them to a wire rack to cool completely.

  • In a separate bowl, beat together the softened cream cheese, softened butter, powdered sugar, lemon zest, and lemon juice until smooth and creamy.
  1. Assemble the Cake:
    • Place one cake layer on a serving plate. Spread a layer of the lemon crème filling over the top. Add the second cake layer on top.
  2. Prepare Lemon Glaze:
    • In a small bowl, whisk together the powdered sugar and lemon juice to create the lemon glaze. Drizzle the glaze over the top of the assembled cake.
  3. Chill and Serve:
    • Chill the Blueberry Lemon Crème Cake in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour before slicing. Serve and enjoy!
