Blueberry Cake Ingredients:

  • 1 cup 2 sticks unsalted butter
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 4 whole eggs
  • 3/4 teaspoon pure lemon extract
  • 3 cups sifted cake flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 3 cups blueberries
  • 2 tablespoons all purpose flour

Cream Cheese Frosting

  • 8 ounces cream cheese softened
  • 1/2 cup 1 stick unsalted butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 3 cups powdered sugar


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour two 9 inch round cake pans.
  • In the bowl of stand mixer with a paddle attachment, beat together butter and sugar until fluffy. Beat in eggs one at a time, scrapping down the sides of the bowl after each egg. Beat in the lemon extract.
  • In another bowl combine cake flour, baking powder and salt.
  • Add 1/3 of the dry mixture to the wet mixture. Once mixed, add in 1/3 of the buttermilk. Continue to alternate adding 1/3 of each at a time just until mixed. Turn off mixer.
  • Combine blueberries with two tablespoons all purpose flour. Gently fold blueberries into the cake batter. Pour cake batter evenly into prepared pans. Bake 35 - 40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  • Remove cake from the oven and allow to cool several minutes in the pan. Carefully slide a butter knife around the edges to loosen the cake and turn over onto a cooling rack. Cool completely.
  • While cake is cooling prepare the frosting by creaming together cream cheese and butter. Once smooth beat in vanilla. Finally beat in the powdered sugar one cup at a time. Frosting should be stiff but spreadable.
  • Place one layer of the cake on your serving plate. Spread 1/3 of the frosting over the top. Place the other layer on top of the frosting. Use the remaining frosting to frost the cake. Slice and serve.
  • Cover and refrigerate any leftovers. Remove from the refrigerator about 1 hour before serving.
