Watkins Lemon Blueberry Pound Cake

1/3 cup butter, softened

4 ounces cream cheese, softened

2 cups sugar

3 large eggs

1 large egg white

1 tablespoon grated lemon peel

2 teaspoons Watkins Vanilla Extract

2 cups fresh or frozen unsweetened blueberries

1 cup (8 ounces) lemon yogurt

Glaze

1-1/4 cups confectioners’ sugar

2 tablespoons lemon juice

Preheat oven to 350°. Grease and flour a 10-in. fluted tube pan. In a large bowl, cream the butter, cream cheese and sugar until blended. Add eggs and egg white, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in lemon peel and vanilla.

Toss blueberries with 2 tablespoons flour. In another bowl, mix the remaining flour with baking powder, baking soda and salt; add to creamed mixture alternately with yogurt, beating after each addition just until combined. Fold in blueberry mixture.

Transfer batter to prepared pan. Bake 55-60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pan 10 minutes before removing to wire rack; cool completely.

In a small bowl, mix confectioners’ sugar and lemon juice until smooth. Drizzle over cake. Yield: 12 servings.
