I don’t know how else to say it, I’VE BEEN DYING TO MAKE THIS RECIPE ALL WINTER LONG!! If you check out my site regularly you’ll notice I love changing up traditional recipes or making stuff that isn’t in the mainstream and this Lemon Polenta Cake with blueberries is no different. While a polenta cake is nothing new, I added a few little twists like homemade whipped cream and a lemon and honey blueberry sauce to cover the polenta cake with. This thing is OMG insanely awesome with flavor. It’s moist, it’s tart, it’s sweet, it’s everything and you will love it guaranteed. The best part about it is that it is really easy to make. Literally a few dairy ingredients, flour, honey and frozen blueberries and you’re good to go! See more great tips, techniques and recipes at EasyHomeMeals.com
