  1. Mix together the flaxseed meal and water; set aside.  Combine the non dairy milk and lemon juice to create a “buttermilk” and let sit a few minutes.  Combine the sugar, oil and vanilla.  Add the flax mixture, as well as the “buttermilk” and mix until all ingredients are fully incorporated.

  2. In a separate bowl, combine the salt, baking soda and flour. Pour the dry ingredients into the wet and mix until half combined; then add the blueberries.  With a long circular motion, continue mixing the batter until the ingredients are all combined, but be careful not to over mix.

  3. Pour the batter into a greased bundt pan and bake at 350ºF for 50-55 minutes. Tap the top of the cake to see if it has finished baking.  When done, the top of the cake should spring back.

  4. You can then add a simple glaze to the top of the cake, although this is not necessary.  Combine 1 cup powdered sugar with 4-6 teaspoons of lemon juice.  Whisk in the lemon juice until you reached the desired consistency.
