yellow cake mix
1 (8 ounce) package
cream cheese, room temperature
1 1/4 cups
Before I even made this I knew my biggest challenge would be to camouflage the characteristic artificial taste of a yellow cake mix. I used an extra 1/2 tsp. of vanilla and substituted melted butter for the vegetable oil to give it a buttery flavor. To compensate for the moistness I knew would be lost by using butter, I also added 2 T. of vegetable oil. I used a full pint of blueberries. Most of that tell-tale cake mix was gone, the butter added rich flavor, the addition of 2 T. of oil contributed the moistness I was after, and the cake was just bursting with plump, fresh blueberries. I used a specialty, swirled Bundt pan and the cake was just beautiful as well as delicious. I drizzled the cake with a shiny, white glaze of 2 c. powdered sugar, 1/2 tsp. vanilla, 1 T.corn syrup and 2 T. hot water. A commercial bakery couldn't have turned out a finer cake!
I've made a few pound cake recipes from scratch, and this recipe does NOT even come close! Although it is moist, it is light and spongey in texture. Pound cake is heavy and dense. You need to use fresh blueberries to if you decide to make this to give flavor. I did use a french vanilla cake (what I had on hand). I subbed 1/4 cup of melted butter for the oil. Make to sure grease and flour the pan very well for it not to stick.
This cake was delicious. It disappeared quickly. I used the vanilla cake mix as recommended by previous users. I also baked at 350 for 55 minutes. I coat the blueberries with flour before adding to batter. This keeps them from all falling to the bottom of the cake! Great Recipe! I am making again today!
I have made this two ways. French Vanilla Mix, 2 cups blueberries, and baked at 350 for about 45 minutes. I used vanilla glaze recipe from this site, glazed it, and put vanilla shells around the bottom. RAVE reviews.
I also did this adding some cinnamon and 2 cups diced apples (instead of blueberries). I coated the apples in brown sugar, white sugar, flour and nutmeg before adding them to mix. After baking, dusted the top with cinnamon and sugar.
I used egg beaters, fake sugar, fat free cream cheese, and apple sauce in place of the oil.
Even with those 'diet' options, this was still an incredible cake.
Delicious recipe and easy to make. If baked at 350 degrees, the cake needs to cook for about an hour and 15 minutes.
A very big hit with the family. Took the advice of others and used French Vanilla cake mix, increased blueberries to a pint, and baked at 350 for 55 minutes. Will definitely be making this one again...very simple with excellent results.
I love this cake, very dense and rich. I used lemon cake mix (which is a great accent to the blueberries), extra blueberries, and sugard the bundt pan rather than flour. The only downfall is the presentation. It doesn't really need a glaze or topping at all, (not even whipped cream), but it needs something to make it more visually appealing. The next time I make this I'll try a light sprinkle of powdered sugar, hopefully it'll help! I plan on making this many more times!
