Blueberry Cake With Lemon Cream Cheese Frosting

Blueberries, lemons & cream cheese…does it get any better? This little cake comes together fast, and the homemade lemon frosting is just right to make this an easy but delicious summer dessert.  I like to serve citrus desserts since they have a wonderful way of cleaning the palate after a meal.  I will admit, I had a slice of this for breakfast this morning, I have a Swedish sweet tooth, I can’t help it!

Blueberry Cake & Lemon Cream Cheese Frosting

  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups Splenda or sugar
  • 1 3/4 cups milk
  • 4 cups all-purpose (or gluten free baking mix)
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 4 cups fresh blueberries (frozen can be used as well)
  • Preheat oven at 375* and grease a 13″ x 9″ baking dish.  In a medium mixing bowl, blend butter, eggs and sugar until smooth, set aside.  In another bowl blend flour, baking powder and salt.  Blend sugar mixture and flour mixture and add milk, mixing all together until blended without over stirring.  The mixture will be fairly thick.  If it is too thick, add a couple tablespoons of milk.  Gently fold in blueberries, spread dough in pan and bake for about 40 minutes depending on your oven.  Cool completely and frost with recipe below.
    Lemon Cream Cheese Frosting {via}
  • 1/4 cup butter, softened
  • 1 (8 ounce) package of cream cheese softened (reduced fat works great)
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons lemon zest
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 5 cups confectioners’ sugar
  • Blend ingredients with hand mixer until smooth and frost cooled cake before serving.  Makes about 3 1/2 cups, I use all of mine but if you don’t like a lot of frosting you can keep it in your fridge for a few weeks (if it lasts that long!) Since the cake has cream cheese in the frosting, I like to keep any leftovers refrigerated.  Makes about 12 generous servings.
    Enjoy!
