1 Bundt cake


  • cooking spray

  • 1 (15.25 ounce) package lemon cake mix, divided

  • ¾ cup milk

  • ½ (8 ounce) package Neufchatel cheese, softened

  • ¼ cup freshly squeezed lemon juice

  • 2 large eggs, at room temperature

  • 1 tablespoon lemon zest

  • 1 cup blueberries, fresh or frozen


  • 1 ½ cups powdered sugar

  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice, or more as needed


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

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

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


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