Vanilla Pudding Blueberry Lime Cake

I had to do something with my blueberries today and because the third gallon of milk I bought last week curdled, I had to figure out a way to make a cake with no milk. This is my version and it turned out very tasty.

1 tsp salt
Juice and zest of 1 Lime
1 1/2 cup blueberries
1/2 cup of butter, room temperature
1 cup sugar

1 tsp cinnamon
2 small containers vanilla pudding 

What to Do:

Preheat oven 350 degrees. Spray bundt pan with cooking spray (or you can make a flat cake, muffins, etc.)

In a small bowl add flour, salt, zest of one lime. Set aside.

Wisk together your butter until fluffy. 
Cream butter with sugar.
Add eggs one at a time.
Add cinnamonand lime juice lime juice.
Mix in 1/2 of the flour mixture and then one small container of vanilla pudding.
