This Lemon Blueberry Bundt Cake is such a quick & easy cake mix bundt cake, but you’d never guess it’s a short-cut recipe! It’s ultra-moist, loaded with fresh blueberries, and is doused in a sweet-tart fresh lemon glaze! My Lemon Blueberry Bundt Cake recipe gets rave reviews, and is a favorite among blog readers!
I threw this together in sheer minutes. Prepped the cake itself in about 5 minutes. I gave this cake almost zero planning whatsoever…. it was a totally last-minute, off-the-cuff idea. I tossed the ingredients in a big bowl and stirred for about a minute, and the prep was DONE.
Well, for the cake part. This Lemon Blueberry Bundt Cake does have a few other steps, but gosh, it’s just altogether so dang easy.
The key here: this is a cake mix Bundt Cake. I am not a snob about cake mix recipes – are you?? My friend – who is not a regular baker – regularly searches for cake mix short-cut recipes, so I’m glad to share an excellent one. No one would know it starts with cake mix!
I like to bake in bulk, and I think I had a minute or two of idle time somewhere in-between flipping Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Pancakes, waiting for this Amaretto Pistachio Cheesecake to come out of the oven, and letting the mixer beat the heck out of this Nutella Buttercream.
Many balls were in the air, but with all of that going on, I had about 90 seconds of free time on my hands, and I didn’t want to waste it. 🙂
I looked around my counter-top at ingredients that were strewn about everywhere, and just decided to whip this up. I didn’t brainstorm this Lemon Blueberry Bundt Cake idea in advance, but it came together quickly in my head when I viewed lemon cake mix, lemon pudding, and fresh blueberries sitting on my counter-top.
Who doesn’t love this combo of flavors? Lemon and blueberries together are phenomenal. Any kind of lemon cake with lemon glaze is always fantastic. What’s not to love? It was a natural idea.
This Lemon Blueberry Bundt Cake turned out amazing though, given such little forethought.
It’s not only wonderfully moist, tart, and vibrant with lemon flavor, but it’s chock-full of plump blueberries. I tried to pick the most rotund of them all. It’s also drizzled with a fresh lemon glaze, that sinks into the cake, giving it even more lemon zing, and keeping it ultra-moist.
Lemon and blueberries are a classic pairing, and they feel particularly appropriate in the spring! Okay, it’s not spring, but it’s just around the corner, no? Hope so.
I also think it’s a really pretty cake. I love how elegant and understated it is! It’s definitely worthy of serving on a holiday! Mother’s Day, Easter, a bridal shower… all would be lovely.
And again, it’s so so simple! Since this Lemon Blueberry Bundt Cake uses a cake mix, it’s a breeze to whip up.
