I was looking for the perfect recipe to make for a bunch of people. Blueberry muffins were a good choice but typically one recipe only yields 8 muffins. I needed more than that. While on Pinterest I found the perfect recipe: Lemon Blueberry Bundt Cake. It is the perfect post Easter egg hunt breakfast treat. That is, if you leave yourself enough time to prepare it, bake it, AND let it cool. I didn't, which in turn caused pre-Easter egg hunt panic.

Lemon Blueberry Bundt Cake is sweet, yet tart. Delicious lemon and blueberry scents fill your home while the cake bakes. It screams Spring time and warm weather, blooming flowers and sunshine. Everything seems perfect, until you decide to not let the cake cool and remove it from the bundt pan. Then panic strikes, kids are crying, you're yelling, your husband looks at you like your crazy. With no other choice you throw the whole pan into the freezer and go outside for the Easter egg hunt.

Don't worry, it all turned out fine. Once the cake cooled, I was able to cut it and ice the pieces rather than remove the whole cake at once. I wasn't too concerned though because I was serving it right away. Just remember, spray your pan AND let your cake cool.
