Lemon Blueberry Cake Recipe by Meggan Hill

Ingredients You Will Need:

  • Boxed lemon cake mix: This gives you a head-start on the cake and is the secret to ultra-lemony flavor. Yes, even restaurants use boxed lemon cake mixes.
  • Instant lemon pudding mix: Add the pudding mix to the batter dry (you don’t prepare the pudding separately). Even if your cake mix says “pudding in the mix,” you should still add a box of instant pudding.
  • Lemon zest and juice: Zest the lemon before cutting it in half for juice.
  • Blueberries: Please don’t use more than 6 ounces of blueberries. If you’re using frozen berries, no need to thaw. Have you heard the trick about tossing blueberries in flour to keep them from sinking? First, that’s a myth. Flour cannot save blueberries from gravity. Second, it’s okay here because this is a bundt cake and it’s baked upside down. When the blueberries sink, they are actually going to the top.

Tips and variations:

  • Yield: This Lemon Blueberry Cake makes 12 servings (or 9 if you like large slices).
  • Storage: Store covered at room temperature for up to 4 days.
  • Lemon blueberry layer cake:  Grease two 9-inch cake pans. Divide the batter evenly between the two pans and bake at 350 degrees for 20 to 25 minutes. Skip the glaze and spread a thicker icing, between cooled layers, along with a sprinkle of fresh blueberries.
  • Lemon blueberry sheet cake: Grease a 13- x 9-inch baking pan. Pour cake batter into the pan and bake at 350 degrees for 30 to 35 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in middle comes clean. If using glaze, poke holes in the cake with a wooden skewer so the glaze can run into the holes and flavor the cake. If using Cream Cheese Frosting, allow the cake to cool before frosting.
  • Lemon blueberry cupcakes: Line a 12-cup muffin tin with paper liners. Spoon the batter into the prepared muffin cups, filling them ¾ of the way full. Bake at 350 degrees for 16 to 20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Allow cupcakes to cool in the pan for 5 minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely. Once cupcakes are cool, glaze or frost and decorate as desired.
