A Long Time Family Favorite
I have always loved blueberries and that love of blueberries was passed on down to my oldest son. Every time I think of blueberries, I remember my mom feeding them to him in his high chair. The little babe couldn't get enough!
My very favorite blueberry recipe is this Soft Blueberry Cookie with Lemon Glaze. Its a recipe I took from my Nanny that I adapted to make into my own and added blueberries to it, just because I love them so much! It's a no brainer for me to have this pound cake recipe here or that it's chock full of blueberries!

Cream Cheese, I use ⅓ less fat cream cheese but if you don't care about the calories, you can use full fat and it will turn out just as good.
Tips and Substitutions

- Use a piece of wax paper to apply the shortening to the bundt pan
- Lightly flour the bundt pan with 1 tablespoon of flour to aid in releasing the cake from the pan once baked.
- If desired, use a cooking spray made specifically for baking to grease the pan instead of shortening.
- If using frozen blueberries, be sure that you do not thaw them out first.
