Easy Lemon Blueberry Layer Cake


This lemon cake with a blueberry filling is an easy cake mix-cake with marvelous frosting. For more lemon flavor, I sometimes add lemon rind.

1 (8-inch) layer cake



  • 1 (15.25 ounce) package white cake mix

  • 1 ¼ cups water

  • 3 egg whites

  • cup vegetable oil

  • 2 teaspoons lemon extract


  • 1 cup cold heavy whipping cream

  • 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened

  • ¾ cup white sugar

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  • cup blueberry pie filling


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour two 8-inch pans.

  2. Beat cake mix, water, egg whites, vegetable oil, and lemon extract together in a bowl using an electric mixer on medium speed until batter is well combined, about 2 minutes. Pour batter into prepared pans.

  3. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean, 25 to 30 minutes. Cool in pans for 10 minutes before transferring it to a wire rack to cool completely.

  4. Beat cream in a chilled bowl using an electric mixer until soft peaks are almost forming into stiff peaks; place bowl in refrigerator.

  5. Beat cream cheese, sugar, and vanilla extract together in a separate bowl using an electric mixer until smooth and creamy. Fold whipped cream into cream cheese mixture.

  6. Place 1 cake on a plate; top with blueberry pie filling. Place second cake atop blueberry filling. Generously frost cake with whipped cream cheese frosting.
