Blueberry Strudel Cake
Blueberry Strudel Cake is divine! This mouthwatering dessert has a crust layer made from cake mix and yeast. Then it’s layered with blueberry pie filling. A streusel made from butter and part of the cake mix is added on top before baking. Finally, after it’s baked, a lovely almond powdered sugar glaze is dolloped over top. It is wonderful!
On top of that you can actually serve this for breakfast as well. The consistency is really more like a coffeecake. Blueberry Strudel Cake is fairly easy to make and not very expensive either. Adding the yeast to the crust layer is a stroke of genius in my opinion. It really adds flavor as well as helping the crust layer raise to perfection.
This is another one of those delicious breakfast cakes I made for our Navaho Mission Trip a couple of weeks ago. It was accidentally left in our freezer! I had everything planned out so well! I packed up everything to go on the trip. I got out all of the frozen meats and fresh fruits and veggies. Unfortunately, I forgot to go back to the freezer and get all of the baked goods I had made! 🙁 Oh, well, our crew didn’t suffer too much in Arizona from any lack of food.
We had company over for lunch this past Sunday after church. So I pulled this terrific dessert out of the freezer and served it then. It’s a take off on my Cherry Strudel Cake and Blackberry Strudel Cake recipes already posted. Same great recipe, with just a different twist by substituting different flavors of pie filling. Same yummy goodness, too!
If you’re looking for a great holiday breakfast idea, then consider Blueberry Strudel Cake. It’s a treasure your company is sure to enjoy. Or, if you want to serve this for dinner, it’s a great recipe to eat anytime of the day or night. 🙂 Blueberry lovers and fruit lovers will especially love this scrumptious cake. But be warned, you will probably be making this easy recipe often in the future!
