Lemon Blueberry Cake

Helpful Tips to make Lemon Blueberry Cake:

  • Tossing fresh or frozen blueberries in 1 tablespoon of flour before baking helps the blueberries stay dispersed throughout the cake and not sink to the bottom.
  • To make a layer cake: Divide batter between two 9 inch cake pans and bake for 20-25 minutes. Poke warm cake layers with holes and drizzle with lemon glaze. Spread the whipped lemon cream cheese frosting in between cooled layers, along with some fresh blueberries. Then frost the entire cake and sprinkle more fresh blueberries on top.
  • To substitute a cake mix: Use a yellow cake, prepare according to directions, but also add 1 teaspoon of lemon extract and 1 tablespoon of lemon zest. Before baking, fold in 2 cups frozen or fresh blueberries tossed in 1 tablespoon of flour. 
  • For best results, always use room temperature eggs, butter, and dairy when baking. This makes the batter come together smoothly and homogeneously.
  • Buttermilk substitution: Pour 1 tablespoon vinegar or lemon juice in a measuring cup. Add milk until you have 1 1/4 cups total liquid. Let sit for 5-10 minutes, stir, and then use. 
  • Substitute 2 cups Cool Whip instead of whipping heavy cream separately to fold into cream cheese frosting.

What you will need to make Lemon Blueberry Cake:

  • Zester - An absolute kitchen essential for fresh flavor! Brighten recipes easily using this handy tool.
  • Hand Mixer - The key to making cakes and frosting so fluffy is a powerful hand mixer, which incorporates air and seamlessly combines ingredients. 
  • Colander - Perfect for washing fresh summer fruit and vegetables! 

Enjoy!

Instructions

Lemon Blueberry Cake
  1. Preheat oven to 350ºF. Grease a 13 X 9 inch baking pan. Set aside.
  2. In a large mixing bowl beat together butter and sugar until very light and fluffy, about 4 minutes.
  3. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in vanilla extract, lemon extract, and lemon zest.
  4. In a separate bowl whisk together flour, baking powder, and salt. Alternatively add flour and buttermilk to butter / sugar mixture, beating on low after each addition until just combined. Gently fold in blueberries tossed in flour.
  5. Pour into prepared baking pan and bake 30-35 minutes, or until toothpick inserted in middle comes clean.
  6. Remove from oven and mix together lemon drizzle ingredients. Poke holes all over warm cake using a skewer or fork. Pour drizzle over cake and let seep in. Use a spatula to spread drizzle around and evenly distribute. Allow cake to cool completely before frosting.
Fluffy Whipped Lemon Cream Cheese Frosting
  1. In a large bowl beat together cream cheese, lemon zest, lemon extract, and powdered sugar. Set aside. 
  2. If using heavy cream, pour into a separate clean, large bowl. Beat on high until it holds shape and peaks form, about 3-4 minutes. 
  3. Fold whipped cream (or Cool Whip) into cream cheese mixture until no streaks remain.
  4. Spread frosting on top of cooled cake and garnish with fresh blueberries and lemon slices.
