The theme for #BundtaMonth November is JAM! Bake a bundt along with us using your favorite jam. We’d love to see what’s baking in your kitchen! At first I thought that blueberries weren’t right for November, that I should bake something that could be put on your Thanksgiving table…but then I realized that baking with frozen blueberries and blueberry jam is just the way to get us through the darker days of winter.
It’s summertime flavors of fresh berries and bright lemon– what’s not to love? You can bake this cake and let it take you to thoughts of fresh blueberry fields in Maine on a hot summer’s day. Not bad for a cool day in November, right?
This recipe is from Cooking Light; I added the blueberry preserves. Their recommended serving size might be smaller in this case than how we ate the cake at my house, but you be the judge. It’s hard to eat just one small sliver! One day I had some for breakfast, another cup with tea in the late afternoon and I bite again before bed. I am not the example of self-restraint but consider yourself forewarned that you might inhale this cake in no time.
