Blueberry Cake

July 2, 2018Teresa

Blueberry Cake is one of our favorite desserts of all time! Actually, it’s a pretty simple and easy recipe too, although you wouldn’t realize it to look at the pictures. After baking a cake mix cake, it’s frosted with a cream cheese and Cool Whip topping. Then it’s covered with blueberry pie filling. That’s it! I use half-and-half instead of water in the cake mix to make it richer. The original recipe only uses one can of pie filling. I used two so it spilled down the sides of the cake.

This recipe goes back about 35 years and I’ve made it a lot over the years. John and I first sampled this jewel of a recipe at a Christmas party back in our early days of child-rearing. I can’t remember the name of the lady who made it–Linda something. She brought this cake. However, she made hers in two round cake pans and covered each with the cream cheese topping and blueberry pie filling like my 9×13″ cake. I think I was fortunate enough to get the last piece. It went fast!

John has never been a big cake lover over the years because he can’t stand dry cakes. He has to have fruit in cakes in order to enjoy them. Well this lovely cake is topped with a creamy cream cheese frosting. Then blueberry pie filling is spooned over top so it’s not dry! In fact, it’s outrageously good. Seriously.

I found out in May that the neighbor across the street had a kidney transplant. We hadn’t heard anything until after he had gotten home from the hospital. In a one in 100,000 chance, his wife was the kidney donor! I went over and asked them if I could bring a meal. He said they’re extended family was taking care of dinners but they’d take a lunch. So I made up Amish Chicken and Noodles, our favorite Rapid Rise Italian Herb Bread, a Winter Fruit Salad with Poppy Seed Dressing, and this dessert. I also made up some Maple Bacon Sweet Potatoes and a Pesto Potato Soup for lunches for the week.

I love to cook–especially for others. They’re youngest daughter specifically asked for cake. Since this has always been one of our favorite cakes I took this heavenly dessert. Because we already had plans that day, this simple recipe was one of the easiest to throw together.

If you’re looking for a fantastic dessert for Fourth of July, this Blueberry Cake recipe can’t be beat. It’s just one of those cakes you can’t get enough of. Because it’s so festive and beautiful everyone will be digging into the cake.  You’ll probably come home with NO leftovers. 🙁 Sorry about that….if you’re wanting leftovers, that is. It ain’t gonna happen. 🙂

Pour cake mix into a mixing bowl. Add eggs, softened butter and half-and-half. Don’t use water to make the recipe as the half-and-half will make the cake a lot richer.

Grease and flour a 9×13″ glass baking dish very generously. Pour cake mix batter into prepared dish.

It’s really important that you flour the baking dish since you’re going to invert the cake later. It will come out of the dish much easier.

Bake at 350 according to cake mix directions for a 9×13″ cake. This will take 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool cake completely before adding frosting.

    My goodness, you should receive a million pins on this one. Your pictures just pull you in.
    The recipe looks beautiful and who would guess, it seems so simple to make.
    It’s a keeper.

      Hi, Trisha. Thanks so much for letting me how much you enjoy the pictures. I rarely get complimented on them! It really is a heavenly recipe, and truthfully, it’s one of my easiest cake recipes ever. If you don’t want to invert the cake, you can simply bake it in a 9×13″ pan and then cover with icing and one can of blueberry pie filling and refrigerate. So simple, so easy, so delicious!
