Fresh Blueberry Cake Mix Cake

Friday, August 7, 2020
This fresh blueberry cake mix cake is so quick and easy and tastes just like it was made from scratch.


I love doctored cake mix cakes and this with the addition of fresh blueberries and a hint of lemon makes all the difference in flavor.


Sometimes when you get caught off guard and need something quick in a pinch, it's hard to come up with a great recipe.


This is perfect for cupcakes, a sheet cake, bundt cake, or just in a springform pan like I used decorated elegantly.


Save a few extra to decorate the top and you will turn this ordinary cake into a beautiful addition to any dessert table.


We love making easy cakes with a cake mix and fooling everyone it's not from scratch.


I have made delicious Sour Cream Coffee Cupcakes using a cake mix, cookies, and even a Scrumptious Banana Cake Mix Cake that all taste like they were from scratch!


We even love using cookie mixes for a great chocolate chip cheesecake bars!

This cake is super simple and you can make it in any kind of pan.


It can be transformed into a beautiful cake or served plain with a dollop of whipped cream on top or dusted with powdered sugar.

Cake Mixes



The cake is moist and the berries give it the perfect balance.


I prefer to use a good brand name cake and also switch flavors now and then.


Blueberry and spice cake go well together also, the cinnamon is a nice flavor change.


I also love the fact this cake slices so easily like a pound cake.


Topped with whipped cream and fruit is a summertime favorite dessert.


You can even add strawberries and blueberries for a patriotic look for a holiday-themed cake.
