We usually like to make things from scratch as much as possible,
but sometimes when we need to make a quick and easy dessert,
this recipe comes in handy! And our Daddy LOVES blueberries,
so this makes a perfect dessert for our family to enjoy and share with others.
(The blueberries make it somewhat healthy, right?)
1 box yellow cake mix
1/4 cup granulated sugar
8 ounces of cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup corn oil
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 1/4 cups blueberries, fresh or frozen (NOT ENOUGH in our opinion! We add 3 cups!)
1 cup powdered sugar
2 tablespoons orange juice
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
(We just use 1 cup powdered sugar, 1 TB. milk and 1/2 tsp. vanilla, but usually double or triple this amount!)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a bowl, stir cake mix and sugar. Add eggs, cream cheese, corn oil and vanilla; beat on low until blended, then beat on medium speed 4 minutes. Stir in blueberries by hand. (We coat in flour first, in hopes of them not sinking to bottom.) Pour batter into a greased and floured 10-inch bundt pan. Bake 45-55 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Remove from oven; cool in pan 10 minutes. Remove from pan; cool completely on a wire rack.
Mix all glaze ingredients; drizzle over cooled cake.
Makes 16 servings.
