The perfect summer cake! Why? Because it’s easy to make, light and airy and of course, delicious! No one wants to be bogged down into the kitchen in the summer baking right?
That’s why I just love this recipe. It’s easy to make and very summerish! We love blueberries and will look for any excuse to eat them. I also love that there is yogurt in the recipe. You get the creamy goodness without the guilt. Plus, there isn’t a lot of butter and no oils either in this recipe.
As soon as I took it out of the oven, and everyone’s mouths were watering. And the best part is it’s so very easy to make!

Line the bottom of a 9x3-inch springform pan with parchment paper.
Grease the side of the pan with butter or cooking spray.
Sift flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt together into a medium bowl.
In a separate bowl, beat butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
