Blueberry Lemon Cake Recipe

“I always set aside some of my fresh-picked blueberries to make this quick and easy dessert,” says Leona Luecking, West Burlington, Iowa. Lemon flavor sparks the fruit layer and the tender cake.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Bake: 30 min. + cooling YIELD:9 servings

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup butter, cubed
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons grated lemon peel, divided
  • 2 cups fresh or frozen blueberries
  • 1 package (9 ounces) yellow cake mix
  • Whipped cream, optional

Directions

  • 1. In a small saucepan, melt butter; stir in sugar until dissolved. Add 1 teaspoon lemon peel. Pour into a greased 8-in. square baking dish. Arrange blueberries in a single layer over top; set aside.
  • 2. Prepare cake batter according to package directions. Stir in the remaining lemon peel. Carefully pour over blueberries.
  • 3. Bake at 350° for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center of cake comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack. Serve with whipped cream if desired. Yield: 9 servings.

"I'm definitely going to make this because I love the combination of lemon and blueberries. I will add at least up to 1/4 cup of freshly squeezed lemon juice and reduce the grated lemon zest to less than 1 teaspoon. Believe me, lemon zest alone is not sufficient to give a good balance of lemon taste - besides, too much zest will simply make the cake taste artificial and bitter. And never, ever use bottled lemon juice, which always leaves a bitter aftertaste."

"This was great! The lemon really brings out the blueberries, and it was really moist and decedent, especially with whipped cream! :)"
