Use 1 cup confectioners sugar and add 1 Tablespoon of lemon juice at a time until desired thickness. Calories are not counted in the nutrition on this recipe.)
Spray flute or bundt pan with cooking spray or grease and dust with a little flour if desired.
Measure out the blueberries and raspberries (Or whatever berries you choose in a bowl and lightly dust with flour) set aside.
Place all the dry ingredients including the sugar, flour, powder, soda, salt and lemon zest in Stand mixer.
Mix for about 20 seconds to incorporate it all together.
Cut up the butter into cubes. Add to the dry mix and mix until it resembles course sand.
Mix all the wet ingredients in a bowl and mix well so eggs are incorporated.
Slowly add the wet ingredients to the dry mixer while on low. Mix it well for about 30-60 seconds so it's nice and smooth.
Take stand off mixer and gently fold in the berries. Be sure not to over mix so you don't break up the berries.
Place in bundt pan and bake in middle rack until toothpick comes out clean about 40 minutes.
Place on rack to cool in the pan.
Once cooled in about 15-30 min, insert knife around edges to loosen.
Turn out on dish. It's really good chilled and served with a dollop of canned whipping cream. Refreshing.
