Ingredients
  

For Cake:

  • 1 box lemon cake mix
  • 1 box instant lemon pudding mix
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • 1 pint fresh or frozen blueberries if using fresh, leave a few out to decorate with later!
  • 1 tsp. all purpose flour
  • 3 tbsp. turbinado sugar

For Glaze:

  • 3 cups powdered sugar
  • 3 tbsp butter melted
  • 2 tbsp milk or more if you prefer it runnier. Omit if you want more of a frosting consistency
  • juice of half a lemon
  • zest of half a lemon
  •  

Instructions
 

For the cake:

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease two small bread loaf pans (5x9) and line with parchment paper. Set aside.
  • In a small bowl, add your blueberries and 1 tsp. of flour. Toss to coat the blueberries (this will keep them from bleeding all throughout the batter as you stir them in.
  • In a large bowl, combine the cake mix, pudding mix, eggs, sour cream and oil. Pour in the blueberries and gently fold them in, being careful not to pop the berries.
  • Evenly divine into the two loaf pans then sprinkle the top with the turbinado sugar. Bake for 35-45 minutes or until a toothpick is inserted and comes out clean (cooking time varies if you decide to use a different mold, such as a bundt cake pan.).
  • Cool loaf for 20 minutes in pan and then use the parchment paper to pull out the cake and transfer to a wire rack to fully cool.
  • While the cake cools, prepare the glaze.

Glaze:

  • In a medium bowl, combine powdered sugar, butter, milk, lemon zest and lemon juice. Whisk until smooth, adding more milk if you want a runnier consistency or more powdered sugar if you want it thicker. I prefer more of a glaze topping to drizzle so I add more milk.
  • Once the cake has cooled, drizzle with the glaze. Decorate with leftover lemon slices and fresh blueberries. You can also add some lemon zest over the top and sprinkle with powdered sugar. Get creative and make it pretty! :)
  • Enjoy!
