An almost homemade lemon blueberry bundt cake recipe using a boxed cake mix.

Lemon Blueberry Cake Recipe

Lemon and blueberry is one of my favorite flavor combinations so I decided why not try to make a lemon blueberry bundt cake. My friend Jake always used to bake me Ina Garten’s lemon pound cake. I dream about that cake but it is a lot of work and I usually don’t have that time. So I figured why not try an almost homemade version with a boxed lemon cake mix.

A few months ago on instagram Kelsey from The Old Farmhouse MN shared a hack on how to use a boxed cake mix to make a bundt cake. I have been making devil’s food bundt cakes every chance I get since. I thought why not take this one step further and make a lemon blueberry bundt cake.

So what’s the hack? Well don’t bother looking at the back of the package we are going completely rogue. The recipe calls for 1 box cake mix, 1 box instant pudding, 4 eggs, 1/2 cup of vegetable oil and 1 cup of hot water. You can really make this with any cake mix and pudding mix. So far I have made devils’ food bundt cake and a vanilla bundt cake but I thought it was time to make something completely out of the box, pun intended.

Once your cake is cool make sure to top it with some frosting. I don’t usually follow a recipe for this I use 1 tbsp of melted butter, a splash of vanilla, a splash of milk and confectioners sugar. To make it extra lemony add a bit of lemon zest or lemon juice.
