Try as I might to limit carbs once in awhile I just have to make a dessert. I usually wait until we are going to have company so we have help eating it. Pa Lloyd has a real sweet tooth, lately he has been trying to cut down on sweets too, so that does make it easier for me. Today’s recipe comes from Facebook I hope that you enjoy it!
Blueberry Butter Cake:
1 pkg. yellow cake mix
3 large eggs divided
2 sticks butter, melted and divided
1 ( 8 oz.) pkg. cream cheese, room
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
2 cups powdered sugar ( I used 1 1/2 cups)
2 cups fresh blueberries
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and lightly grease a 9x13 inch baking dish.
Beat 1 stick melted butter with 1 egg in a large bowl, then beat in yellow cake mix until incorporated. Transfer mixture to baking dish, being sure to spread/pat it in a even layer and set aside.
In a separate large bowl or mixer beat softened cream cheese until fluffy, then beat in remaining 2 eggs. Once that is well mixed, mix in remaining butter and vanilla.
Gradually beat powdered sugar into mixture, mix until smooth, then drop spoonfuls over cake batter, spread carefully and gently into a smooth, even layer.
Drop blueberries over cake, gently press them into the cream cheese mixture. Bake for 40-50 minutes or until center is just set, but slightly jiggly in the center. Cool.
Have a great week!
I'm Kathy Lloyd. I grew up on a farm near Elmore, MN and have lived in Fairmont for over 44 years. I have always loved to cook, even when I was very young. I loved to stay with my Aunt Dorothy during my childhood. She was a great cook and used to give me freedom in the kitchen, teaching me along the way. She made recipes from our Norwegian heritage, along with pies, homemade doughnuts, yeast bread and cinnamon rolls.
