So easy to put together and when you see the surprise ingredient, you will understand why. We are using cake mix to add moistness, flavor, and speediness to this recipe. Using a cake mix keeps us from pulling out the baking soda, baking powder, salt, and, of course, the flour container. By saving some time with the batter, we can put a little extra effort into the cheesecake topping making this a versatile addition to our summer entertaining. Why not serve it as a special brunch dish in addition to it’s obvious place, the dessert table.

The rest of the mix? Don’t worry, you can use it to make the Blueberry Jam Buns.

Ingredients

  • Batter:
  • 1-3/4 cups dry mix from (7-1/8 oz) Duncan Hines Classic Yellow Cake Mix
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup sour cream, or greek yogurt
  • 1-1/2 cups washed and sorted fresh blueberries
  • Topping:
  • 4 oz cream cheese, room temperature
  • 3 TB granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup commercially prepared lemon curd plus 1 TB milk
  • Glaze:
  • 2 TB crushed blueberries
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • 2/3 cup sifted powdered sugar, more or less depending on juiciness of berries

Method

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9" x 13" baking pan with non stick baking spray, set aside. Can also use a 1/4 sheet baking pan lined with foil then sprayed with non stick baking spray.

Step 2

Combine dry cake mix, eggs, and sour cream in a large bowl. Beat for two minutes with a handheld mixer until smooth. Stir in blueberries. Pour batter into prepared pan.

Step 3

Wipe out bowl, and add cream cheese, sugar, lemon curd, and milk. Beat until smooth with handheld mixer. Spoon cream cheese mixture into a zip top bag. Snip end to create about a 1/4" opening.

Step 4

Drizzle back and forth over top of the batter with the cream cheese topping. Then take a butter knife and drag through topping. This ensures that bite will have some cream cheese, and it makes it pretty too.

Step 5

Bake for 22-27 minutes or until topping is set and slightly golden. Edges will pull away from sides of pan too. Remove from oven and cool completely before glazing.

Step 6

Prepare glaze by combining blueberries, and lemon juice. Gradually stir in powdered sugar until glaze is thick, but pourable.

Step 7

Drizzle glaze over top of cake. Cut into slices to serve. Store leftovers covered and refrigerated.
