Lemon Blueberry Bundt Cake

It's summer so I hope you all have been busy enjoying the warm weather and doing fun things with the kids! Me, I have just gotten back from a trip to the east coast where we introduced my daughter to more family. Oh and we moved at the beginning of summer, you would think that's not much fun except now I have my very own LEMON TREE!! 

So with that I always have fresh lemonade in the fridge and am trying to think of what else to do with all the lemons. With summer comes some awesome fruits in the store. So this yummy cake is a classic mixture of lemon and blueberries.

I have never made a bundt cake before I only have the pan because I like monkey bread. To my excitement its probably the easiest cake to make which means be on the look out for more!
