This Lemon Blueberry Cake is a favorite at our house. Perfect for summer grilling parties with it’s bright lemon filling, whipped cream cheese frosting and fresh Driscoll’s blueberries.
Think you can’t bake a cake? This Lemon Blueberry Cake is made using boxed lemon cake mix, lemon frosting and whipped cream cheese frosting, so it’s SUPER EASY to make. I love adding fresh fruit as a cake topping during the spring and summer months when the berries are plentiful. Driscoll’s berries are always fresh and these blueberries pair perfectly with lemon. The hardest part of this recipe is trying not to eat all the blueberries before the cake is ready!
I put this cake on my kitchen island to serve later on after dinner, but it didn’t make it that long! I like to bake on weekend mornings and go about my chores for the day, coming back to enjoy my creation after a long day. This cake was gone before dinner. My mistake for leaving it on the kitchen island! Everyone that passed by had to have a piece.
If you follow along, you know that my house is a gathering place. We have two teenage kids who bring all of their friends by on a regular basis. In fact, I started this blog as a way to share easy weeknight dinner recipes after finding that most of the kids friends weren’t having dinner with their families. I love to cook and always make more than we can eat, so kids know they can always get a home cooked dinner at our place. it fills my soul with happy vibes!
