This is an Espresso walnut cake.I baked this for my brother's birthday.It is a two layered cake with chopped walnuts and flavoured with espresso.
Both the frosting and filling are  espresso cream using mascarpone.

Cross sectioned view.

Blueberries are in season.
My family loves blueberries and I have made a couple of bakes using blueberries like blueberry tart, muffins and this blueberry-lemon bundt cake.
I love bundt pans because they produce beautiful cakes of different shape and design.This bundt pan is just a simple fluted design.The lemon icing gives a very refreshing tangy taste.My husband loves this cake and this was a good bake.
