Blueberry Pound Cake with a Cake Mix

  • 1-15.25 oz box Yellow Butter Cake Mix {or yellow}
  • 1-3.4 oz box vanilla pudding
  • ¾ cup milk {I used 1%}
  • 4 eggs
  • cup sour cream
  • ¼ cup butter {melted}
  • 2 cups blueberries {I used fresh}


  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 2-2 ½ tbsp milk


Blueberry Pound Cake with Cake Mix

  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Prepare a Bundt pan by spraying it with non stick cooking spray.

  2. In a large bowl combine butter yellow cake mix {reserve 1 tablespoon for blueberries}, vanilla pudding mix, milk, eggs, sour cream and melted butter. Use a hand held mixer {or mix by hand} to incorporate all of the ingredients.

  3. In a small bowl add the reserved tablespoon of yellow cake mix to the blueberries and stir to coat. Add the blueberries to the cake batter and fold them in gently.

  4. Pour the batter into your prepared Bundt pan and spread into an even layer. Bake for 35-40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean {or press down gently onto the cake and when it springs back it is done}.

  5. Remove from the oven and allow it to cool in the pan for 10 minutes on a cooling rack. After 10 minutes, invert the cake onto a cake plate and allow it to cool completely.


  1. In a small bowl combine powdered sugar and milk, whisk until the glaze is thin enough to drizzle onto the cake. Serve and store covered either at room temperature or in the refrigerator.

Recipe Notes

  • If you forget to reserve a tablespoon of cake mix you can always use a tablespoon of all purpose flour.
  • Frozen blueberries can also be used in an equal amount.  Just be extra gentle when stirring them into the batter or they can easily turn the batter purple.
