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.

  • 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.

This cake was amazing! Very moist and a lot of lemon flavor. I used 2 cups of fresh blueberries instead of 1, which was a lot; next time I will probably use 1 1/2 cups. I also used regular cream cheese in place of Neufchatel cheese. One thing to be noted, missing from step 2, is to add the 1/4 cup of lemon juice. Read More

Made this a few times and its really good. Love the lemon, blueberry combination. I added alittle zest to the glaze and tried half strawberries/blueberries once and it was good but not as great as the blueberries by themselves. Next I will try rasberries but I don't think you need to stray away from the original recipes. Read More
