My niece asked me to duplicate a cake that she had at a party, but couldn’t get the recipe because the woman who made it was a caterer. After 4 tries, this is the one that got the approval of my family and neighbors.


Lemon Blueberry Cream Cheese Pound Cake

1 (18 ¼ oz) lemon cake mix
1 (3 ½ ox) package instant lemon pudding mix
¼ cup sugar
3 large eggs
1 (8 oz) package cream cheese, softened
¾ cup vegetable oil
¼ cup water
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon lemon extract
2 teaspoons grated lemon peel
1 ½ cups fresh blueberries
1 Tablespoon flour
1 cup confectioners’ sugar
2 Tablespoons lemon juice
Preheat oven to 350; grease and flour a 10" Bundt pan. In a large bowl, combine the cake mix, pudding mix, and sugar. Add the eggs, cream cheese, oil, extracts and water. Beat on low speed until blended. Scrape bowl. Add the grated lemon zest and beat 4 minutes on medium speed. Gently toss blueberries with flour. Spoon 1/3 of the batter into the greased and floured Bundt pan, spreading it evenly. Sprinkle ½ cup of the blueberries over it, spacing them out evenly. Poke some of the blueberries down into batter, and leave some on top of batter. Repeat this procedure twice, making two more layers of batter and blueberries.

Bake cake in middle of oven for 50-60 minutes or until toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean. Let cool in pan for 10 minutes, then carefully turn out onto a wire rack. Mix lemon juice and confectioners’ sugar. While cake is still warm, poke all over with a skewer or toothpick. Pour glaze over warm cake.

Notes: I used Duncan Hines cake Mix. It does not have pudding added. Another glaze can be used. Don’t poke holes in cake. Let cake cool completely. Combine 1/3 cup fresh lemon juice and ½ cup
granulated sugar in a small saucepan. Bring mixture to a boil, stirring
until the sugar is dissolved, and remove the pan from the heat. Pour
over cooled cake.

This recipe is from a local restaurant called Stonewood. It's scrumptious.



Salmon with Blueberry Sauce

1/2 cup chicken broth, divided
1 teaspoon vinegar
1/2 cup orange juice
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1 1/2 Tablespoons cornstarch
1 cup fresh blueberries
4 (6 ounce) salmon steaks
2 Tablespoons olive oil
salt and ground black pepper, to taste
Pour 1/4 cup chicken stock, vinegar, orange juice, and honey into a saucepan. Bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce heat to medium. Dissolve cornstarch in 1/4 cup of chicken stock, and stir into the simmering sauce. Cook and stir until the sauce thickens and turns clear, 1 to 2 minutes. Stir in the blueberries, and keep warm over low heat.

Preheat grill or broiler to medium high-heat.
Brush salmon with oil, and season to taste with salt and pepper. Grill or broil until the fish flakes easily with a fork, about 3 to 4 minutes per side. Serve with blueberry sauce.
