Lemon Blueberry Layer Cake

Lemon Blueberry Layer Cake

There isn't a better combo than lemon and blueberries. I have already shared with you my favorite Lemon Blueberry Yogurt Loaf.  This Lemon Blueberry Layer Cake is just what we need to take our taste buds in to spring.  I added pudding and butter and fresh lemon zest to the batter.  And don't even get me started on the Sunshine Sweet Lemon Curd that is between the layers.  HELOO!!


If you are hosting a spring brunch, baby shower, or Sunday family dinner, you better make this the day before to have ready for your guests.  You will be so amazed at the compliments you will get.
