  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F. Generously spray 12-cup fluted tube cake pan with baking spray with flour. In small bowl, place blueberries. Remove 1 tablespoon dry cake mix; sprinkle over berries, and toss to coat. Set aside.
  • 2
    In large bowl, place remaining cake mix, cream cheese, lemon peel, poppy seed, water, 1/4 cup lemon juice and eggs. Beat with electric mixer on medium speed 2 minutes, scraping bowl occasionally. Stir in coated blueberries and any remaining dry cake mix. Pour into pan.
  • 3
    Bake 38 to 43 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Remove from oven. Let stand 20 minutes; remove from pan to cooling rack. Cool completely, about 1 hour.
  • 4
    Transfer cake to serving platter. In small bowl, beat powdered sugar and 2 tablespoons lemon juice with spoon until smooth and spreadable. If too stiff to spread, add additional lemon juice, 1 teaspoon at a time. Spread over cake. Store loosely covered at room temperature.
  • It is very important to use baking spray with flour for coating the pan. It will help with successful removal from the pan.

Expert Tips

  • Tossing blueberries with a little dry cake mix helps the berries not sink to the bottom of the pan while baking.
