Blueberry Pudding Cake

We have many acres of blueberry bushes in the area where I live. My father-in-law has a number near his house, so I have an abundant supply every year. My family loves blueberries, so I'm always looking for new ways to use them. This is new recipe I found and it's been very popular.
  • Total Time
    Prep: 15 min. Bake: 45 min.
  • Makes
    9 servings


  • 2 cups fresh or frozen blueberries
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 cup 2% milk
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1 cup boiling water


  • Toss the blueberries with cinnamon and lemon juice; place in a greased 8-in. square baking dish. In a small bowl, combine the flour, sugar and baking powder; stir in milk and butter. Spoon over berries.
  • Combine sugar and cornstarch; sprinkle over batter. Slowly pour boiling water over all. Bake at 350° for 45-50 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the cake portion comes out clean.
Editor's Note
If using frozen blueberries, use without thawing to avoid discoloring the batter.

    Does this need to be stored in the refrigerator?

    What a delicious recipe! I substituted some of our homegrown frozen aronia berries for part of the blueberries to give the cake an antioxidant boost.

    really easy and good. Lear from my mistakes- I put in a few too many blueberries, so ended up with more juice than would thicken- so do not be tempted to stay from the recipe

    Love this recipe! I double it and use a 13 x 9 pan. I found it easier to put the pan in the oven and pour the water over top with the pan on the rack. Hard for me to avoid a mess trying to get the full slushy pan into the oven!

    My family absolutely loves this! My daughter is coming for a visit in a couple weeks and I promised her and my son that I would make it. And the grandkids if Moms & Dads save them some! Haven’t made it in a while because of illness and was so glad to find it on your website. Thank you!

    I have made this recipe many, many times and each time it is a total hit. I'll continue making it with no changes to the recipe since it is perfect the way it was first written!

    I have rated this as a 4* recipe. I'd never made it before. My adjustments were using a can of raspberry pie filling since I did not have blueberries available. I'd also made adjustments using 2 tsp. lemon juice to the berry filling and adding 1/4 tsp. salt with the dry ingredients (flour, baking powder and sugar). I'd baked 45 minutes, tested cake and baked 5 minutes longer. Thank you for sharing! delowenstein
