This Blueberry Lime Pound Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting is so easy to make and loaded with fresh blueberries and zesty lime or lemon. Baking this pound cake with cream cheese in the dough makes it extra moist and creamy. Top it with a cream cheese frosting to make it irresistible!
I know, I know. Blueberries? Again?? You don’t even have to tell me. I’m sure I have blueberried y’all out over the last couple of months, but they are still coming in by the bucket load off our blueberry bushes! But you can’t deny that you are in love with this Blueberry Lime Pound Cake!
This blueberry pound cake is easy to make, but a little different from your normal recipe. I have found a trick to keeping your pound cake extra tender and moist…cream cheese! We beat cream cheese into the batter for the pound cake and it makes a big difference!
I like to add lime to this blueberry pound cake for a little punch of brightness, but of course you can use lemon or even orange zest instead. Use what you prefer or what you have on hand, all three citrus flavors work great in this blueberry pound cake recipe.
