Lemon Blueberry Bundt Cake
« on: April 11, 2011, 10:13:34 AM »
Lemon Blueberry Bundt Cake

1 Duncan Hines Lemon Supreme Cake Mix
1 box Lemon Instant Pudding Mix
1 stick melted butter
4 eggs
1 cup of water
2-3 Tblsp lemon juice
1/2 to 1 tsp lemon zest
fresh blueberries ( I used about 2 cups, but will use less next time, don't use more though or it will overwhelm the batter)

Preheat oven to 350. Grease and flour bundt pan.

In a small bowl, put the blueberries and some of the pudding mix and shake to coat the blueberries. 

Mix all ingredients - except blueberries - for about 2 mionutes on medium until smooth. (do not add hot melted butter on top of the eggs). Gently fold in the blueberries with a spatula.
Pour evenly into the bundt pan (do not shake to even out the batter, I did, and it sank the blueberries  :censored: ), bake for 45-55 minutes, testing for doneness.

Let cool in pan for 25 minutes. Flip out onto a plate to make sure it will come out ok, then flip it back into bundt pan. Poke holes in top(which is really the bottom) with a wooden skewer. Pour half the glaze over the cake and let it cool in pan on a rack for another half hour. Flip out onto cake plate, and cover top with rest of glaze. (may need to carefully microwave the glaze to liquefy).

Glaze ( I didn't measure, so wing it, but you want it kind of thin)

4 Tbls melted butter
4 Tbls lemon juice
1 cup powdered sugar

Whisk until the lumps are out. may need to add more powdered sugar...you don't want it too thin, but too thick and it won't sink into the cake. It will set up quickly, so don't make it until right before pouring it on the cake.
Just hand over the chocolate...back away slowly...far away....and you won't get hurt....

Save the Earth... it's the only planet with chocolate.

That sounds sooooo good!  And if you like things less sweet, you could skip the glaze and maybe just dust some powdered sugar to dress it.

Whoa, that's some seriously good sounding cake!  I have all the ingredients except blueberries, not hard to find in the store tomorrow though. :)

I've never had a problem getting a cake out of a pan.

One popular baking tip is to toss the pan in flour after brushing the inside with oil (cover the top with plastic wrap). 

Again, never had to use it.
