Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In medium-sized bowl, sift together two cups of flour (will use 3 tablespoons of flour later), baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
  3. In another medium-sized bowl, use an electric mixer to cream together butter, and sugar. Add eggs one at a time. Add milk, vanilla extract, lemon extract, lemon, and lime juice. Mix until fluffy.
  4. Add flour mixture. Mix just until combined. Batter will be fluid. Set aside.
  5. In medium-sized bowl, sprinkle one tablespoon of flour over blueberries. Stir to evenly coat. Set aside.
  6. Generously grease a 4-cup bundt pan with vegetable oil. If using a cast-iron bundt pan, grease with Crisco Butter (cake will stick to vegetable oil). Sprinkle prepared pan with remaining two tablespoons of flour. Roll pan until bottom and sides are evenly coated with flour. Turn bundt pan upside down on a plate. Tap lightly to release extra flour onto plate. Discard flour. Set prepared bundt pan aside.
  7. Pour half of batter into bundt pan. Add 1/4 cup of blueberries coated with flour. Pour in remaining batter. Top with remaining 1/4 cup of blueberries coated with flour.
  8. Bake 45 to 50 minutes or until knife inserted in center comes out clean. Oven temperatures vary. Decrease 25 degrees if cake’s edges start browning 20 minutes into baking (cooking too fast).
  9. After baking completely, carefully remove HOT bundt pan from oven. Let stand 15 minutes. If cake doesn’t move easily when pan is shaken, loosen by using a rubber spatula to go around edges.
  10. Cover top of bundt pan with a large plate. Flip over to release cake.
  11. Place powdered sugar in a sifter to lightly dust top of cake before serving.
Recipe Notes

HELPFUL BAKING TIPS

Test Baking Powder Before Using

Pour a few tablespoons of warm water into a small bowl. Add 1/2 teaspoon baking powder.  The mixture will fizz if the powder is fresh.  If there’s  no reaction, trash it  and buy fresh  baking powder.

Butter’s high fat content gives cakes and other baked good their melt-in-your-mouth texture and buttery flavor.  

Room Temperature Eggs disperse evenly into the batter, causes even  baking, and a lighter texture because eggs trap air.  Bring eggs to room temperature quickly by soaking in a bowl of warm water for 10-15 minutes.

Oven Temperatures Vary 

Some ovens cook faster than others.  If the cake’s edges start to brown 15-20 minutes after placed in oven,  immediately decrease temperature 25 degrees.  Continue baking.
