It’s summer break, and I’ve been taking my kiddos all over the place doing new and fun activities including blueberry picking.

The kids really enjoyed getting under the nets and snagging blueberries to fill up their buckets, and I appreciated getting three times as many blueberries as I would have on my own.

This is also a great way to introduce new foods to picky eaters. My oldest isn’t the biggest fan of berries in general, but she was more than willing to try them again after she put in all that effort of picking.

So I was on the lookout for blueberry recipes using fresh blueberries.  This is actually kind of hard to find in all of my old cook books, but I spotted this Fresh Blueberry Cake recipe in my Revel, Junior League of Shreveport Cook Book.

Moist Blueberry Cake Recipe

This blueberry cake with cream cheese is particularly moist. It’s the combination of the eggs, butter, cream cheese, and oil added to the dry cake mix.

The combination of these ingredients plus the hands down, amazing lemon glaze take this recipe over the top.

Props to Dad who recommended that I add a special touch at the end.  This blueberry cake with cream cheese was good on its own with just a simple dusting of powdered sugar, but the easy lemon glaze makes it spectacular.

Don’t discount  good glaze; and don’t worry, it’s easy to make.
