Fresh & Fruity Bundt Cake

Who’s ready for spring? I know I am!  The weather has been beautiful here in Utah, so much so that we finally were able to see the flower bed in our front yard (the snow is finally gone). 

As soon as the weather warms up, I immediately want to bake with fresh fruit. While we were out the other day, we picked up a few things at Walmart to make this bright and cheery lemon blueberry bundt cake for a family dinner.

I grabbed a box of white cake mix and a bag of Buttercream Frosting Mix – it made whipping up this cake a breeze! Something a busy mom like me really appreciates. Did I mention they’re preservative & artificial flavor free? Yess!

Easy Enough, the Kiddos Can Help!

What I love most about this recipe is that it’s something you can make with your family. I’ve made plenty of recipes over the past few years that require a lot of focus and precise measuring. This cake is definitely something your kids can make with you!

PREP. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a standard bundt cake pan with non-stick baking spray and set aside. Note: If you are worried about non-stick spray not being enough for the cake you can always butter and flour the pan!

BATTER. In the bowl of a stand mixer or a large mixing bowl with a hand mixer, beat the cake mix and the butter until a thick dough forms. Add the yogurt, lemon juice, milk, mix until combined. Add the eggs and beat for 1 minute on medium speed.

BERRIES. Using a wooden spoon or a rubber spatula, fold in the lemon zest and blueberries.

BAKE. Pour into the bundt pan and bake for 40-50 minutes or until golden brown on top and set in the center. Remove from the oven and allow to cool for 20 minutes before inverting onto a platter.

TOPPINGS. Meanwhile, in a medium size mixing bowl, beat the frosting mix, butter, water and extract with a hand mixer until smooth. Spread over the warm (but not hot) cake. Garnish with extra blueberries, lemon slices or mint.

Ingredient Tips

  • How many lemons do you need for the amount of juice? 1 lemon!
  • Sour cream? If you don’t have any Greek yogurt, you can use sour cream and add in extra lemon juice for more of that needed flavor.
  • How to prevent the blueberries from sinking? Toss your blueberries in a tablespoon or so of flour to prevent the blueberries from sinking to the bottom of the cake.

Storage Tips

You can STORE this cake in the fridge or on the counter. It is fine either way really. It should be covered no matter what though and it should last for about a week.

To FREEZE, let the cake cool completely and then wrap it in plastic wrap and foil. It should last for about 3 months before it needs to thaw overnight and then be brought to room temperature.

  2. This cake looks amazing!!! 😀 What can I use instead of Pillsbury™ Purely Simple™ White Cake & Cupcake Mix and Pillsbury™ Purely Simple™ Buttercream Frosting Mix? It’s not available in the city, that I live in.
    Thank you 🙂
