Lemon Blueberry Poundcake

   I can't recall eating poundcake during my pre- gluten free days.  Although I do remember my mom telling a story of when my brother baked a poundcake... and that it was a heck of a lot heavier than one pound!

   But have no fear.  This recipe yields the most amazing and foolproof poundcake ever.  {And it weighs the appropriate weight!}  


   Regardless of whether I've eaten the gluten-filled version, I am so happy that I have discovered poundcake now.  This recipe is knock-your-socks-off amazing.  Light.  Fluffy.  Bursting with bright lemon and moist blueberry.  Especially perfect for spring.  


   It is perfect for brunch, dessert, {lunch... dinner... midnight snack...}, friends and family.  It's also perfect for those crazy dairy free people in your life. 

   So what are you waiting for?  Get baking!  It's an incredibly easy recipe to whip up!
