Notes

  • I love this shortcut blueberry cake using cake mix.  White, yellow or butter cake mix can be used.
  • This is a fresh blueberry cake; frozen blueberries can be used instead.
  • Be sure to soften the butter and cream cheese for this simple blueberry cake to prevent a lumpy batter.
  • Do not over bake the blueberry cake.  It is an extremely moist blueberry cake recipe.
  • The lemon glaze for this blueberry cake is optional.  Instead, sprinkle the entire cake with powdered sugar or eat it as is!
  • Zest the lemon before cutting it in half to juice!
