Yummo! Lemon Cheesequake Cake {w/Blueberry Topping}

Pin It


Okay, let's get one thing straight--I am not a cook. I've tried, I've failed, my husband and I live on restaurant food, end of story. And we're cool with that. Don't get me wrong, we do eat at home sometimes, and the hubs can grill a mean steak. But, for the most part, we are let's-go-out-to-eat kind of folk. However, I'm not trying to toot my own horn here, but I can actually bake. I suppose my baking ability has something to do with the fact that baking involves exact measurments, not the natural talent to throw various ingredients together and make an amazing meal--I don't know.

I got to flex my baking muscles this past week since I was summoned to make a birthday cake for the hubs. I asked him what kind of cake he wanted, and he requested a blueberry cream cheese cake. I was cool with that. Problem was, I had never actually made a blueberry cream cheese cake. . . But, I had made a lemon cheesequake cake before, and I figured I could turn it into a lemon blueberry cheesequake cake if I dumped a can of blueberry pie filling on top. And that's just what I did. I have to admit, it was pretty doggone good. So, I thought I'd share the recipe with you guys. The complete, print-out-a-copy version follows the nifty pics.












IMPORTANT: BE SURE TO LICK ALL SPOONS, BOWLS, AND BEATERS USED WHEN COMBING CAKE MIX INGREDIENTS!






ANOTHER OPPORTUNITY TO LICK THE BOWL AND SPOON. DON'T PASS IT UP!













And that's it! I hope you enjoy your cake as much as we (me, the hubs, and the fam) enjoyed this one!
