So how did we stumble onto this recipe?
One morning I woke up to some ripe bananas. Throwing out food is something I really dislike doing, but banana bread is overplayed the same with banana pancakes. Then I decided why not try to make a cake. I had some blueberries as well as a lemon I needed to use up.
The first time I made this there was way too much flour making the cake very dense. The second time it was like a pancake. I kept working it over and over until the Banana Blueberry Bundt Cake with Lemon Glaze was just right. Perfect examples of my baking expertise here!
But once I got the ratio of fluid ingredients and dry ingredients and the balance of flavors just right Banana Blueberry Bundt Cake with Lemon Glaze became my family’s favorite cake.
