Gooey Blueberry Lemon Butter Cake


How can it be August already?! It seems like the summer just started. Next thing you know, it will be back to school time and winter and…wow I’m getting a little ahead of myself. But I think ahead all the time.

My husband and I just got back from a weeklong Colorado road trip and we loved it. These is a lot more scenery in Colorado than there is in Minnesota that’s for sure. But I seriously was craving this Gooey Blueberry Lemon Butter Cake the whole time, no joke.

If you’ve ever had the original butter cake this is pretty much the same thing but with a fun and flavorful twist. Because twist on classics are what I’m known for doing, I couldn’t help but take a twist on this fun and addicting cake. And I have a cake fetish so, it was only natural!

So let me get down to some details shall we? Instead of the normal butter cake one would use in this recipe, I used a lemon cake mix. Wow for one, who isn’t a lemon lover.

Then in the gooey part I folded in some fresh blueberries to add a bit of color and extra flavor because who doesn’t love the taste of lemon and blueberry together right? Exactly.

Then you bake it all up, sprinkle with some powdered sugar and let me tell you, this is one cake you want to eat with a fork…gooey I mean come on, unless you want to get a little messy then I’m all for eating with your hands.
