Make the cake

  1. In the bowl of you stand mixer, beat the butter and sugar together with the paddle attachment. Add in the eggs and mix together. Add the lemon juice and lemon zest, as well as the vanilla extract, and mix in.
  2. Preheat your oven to 350F. In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder and soda, and salt. Sift it into the wet ingredients. The sifting step is important, as it makes everything fluffier, and doesn’t allow for any clumps.
  3. Toss the blueberries in the bowl with some flour,  then fold into the batter with a silicon spatula. Pour the batter into a pre-buttered bundt pan, and tap and smooth it so no bubbles remain. Bake for 45-55 minutes until a toothpick comes out clean. Mine took 50 minutes. Let cool completely

Make the blueberry glaze

  1. Add blueberries, orange juice and heavy cream to your blender and blend until combined and smooth.
  2. Melt your butter in a microwave safe bowl. Add the cooled butter and milk and heavy cream to the glaze and mix together.
  3. Transfer to a bowl and whisk in the powdered sugar to desired consistency. Strain to remove any clumps. Drizzle over cake and let set, then slice and enjoy!
