I have always loved loaf cakes. I used to buy them from Kroger when I worked there as a teen. My favorites were the double chocolate, blueberry, and pumpkin flavors. It honestly kind of blows my mind that lemon blueberry is something I have made and eaten because years ago, I wouldn't have tried it. After Nick's third deployment, he wanted lemon with everything because that is how he made his food tolerable in Afghanistan. I started making savory books with lemon first and I still think I enjoy savory lemon dishes, but I do love lemon with something else in a dessert. Any berry with lemon is delicious. This pound/loaf cake is super moist. The glaze is so yummy. I just loved this cake so much.
