No one would ever guess this lemon-blueberry cake starts out with a boxed mix. Adding blueberries, lemon, and milk to the mix will result in a moist, light, and fluffy cake.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Spray a fluted tube pan (such as Bundt®) with cooking spray.

  • Place all but 1 tablespoon cake mix in a large bowl. Add milk, Neufchatel cheese, eggs, and lemon zest and beat with an electric mixer for 3 minutes.

  • Place blueberries in a separate bowl and toss with remaining 1 tablespoon cake mix until coated. Fold into cake batter and transfer to the prepared Bundt® pan.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 40 to 45 minutes. Set on a wire rack until completely cooled, about 30 minutes.

  • Combine powdered sugar and lemon juice for glaze in a small bowl. Mix together until desired consistency, adding more lemon juice a bit at a time, if needed.

  • Run a table knife around the edges of pan to loosen cake. Invert carefully onto a serving plate and slowly pour glaze over top.

Cook's Note:

Regular cream cheese can be used in place of the Neufchatel cheese.
