It’s meyer lemon time again! I feel like there’s only a 3 day window for finding them in my grocery stores so I was pretty thrilled when I happened to see them a couple days ago. I just love them and I look forward to them all winter!

Last week I was flipping through a magazine and asked my husband how he felt about pound cake. He was all “I LOVE LEMON CAKE!” Uhh… what?

But when I picked up those meyer lemons I remembered him saying that and went on a hunt for a good recipe. Lemon and blueberry just make the best cake. There really isn’t a better combination if you ask me. This Meyer Lemon-Blueberry Bundt Cake is super moist thanks to the sour cream and the cream cheese glaze is just phenomenal. If you can find meyer lemons, make this! And if you don’t have any luck finding them, use regular lemons! It will be delicious either way.
