Blueberry Ripple Cake Recipe

My mother gave me this recipe some 40 years ago, and it's withstood the test of time. The blueberry-filled cake has gone on to please four generations of our growing family. Along with baking, my favorite pastime is quilting.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 45 min. YIELD:12-15 servings

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1-1/4 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup cold butter, cubed
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans
  • 1 package white cake mix (regular size)
  • 1-1/4 cups fresh or frozen blueberries

Directions

  • 1. In a large bowl, combine the flour, brown sugar, cinnamon and salt; cut in butter until crumbly. Stir in pecans. Sprinkle half of the mixture into a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish.
  • 2. Prepare cake mix batter according to package directions; spread over pecan mixture. Top with the blueberries and remaining pecan mixture; swirl with a knife.
  • 3. Bake at 350° for 45-50 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Serve warm. Yield: 12-15 servings.
Editor's Note: If using frozen blueberries, use without thawing to avoid discoloring the batter.
