Lemon Blueberry Surprise Cake is a deliciously moist cake that’s filled with a surprise blueberry filling!
Lemon Blueberry Surprise Cake is one of my new favorite cakes! The cake is super moist, almost poundcake consistency with a sweet blueberry pie filling inside. I top the cake with a simple white icing and a sprinkle of toasted coconut. It’s bright, cheery and completely irresistible!
Last year I made a Cherry Surprise Cake and I haven’t been able to stop thinking of new variations for this cake ever since.
The cake starts with a lemon cake mix and is thickened up with some lemon instant pudding mix and thick greek yogurt.
To get that surprise filling you’ll want to scoop half of the batter into your cake pan and then spoon the blueberry pie filling right in the center. Top the cake with the remaining batter and bake!
I loved the bright lemony flavor that was bursting out of this cake, plus the sweet blueberry filling was a nice surprise too!
You could also use fresh blueberries instead of the blueberry pie filling if you can’t find it.
Here are some more awesome flavor ideas for this fun cake:
- Swap out blueberry pie filling for fresh blueberries
- Use cherry pie filling instead of blueberry
- Mix in a tablespoon of poppy seeds with the lemon cake mix for a fun twist
This cake just screams SPRING to me. I especially love the toasted coconut on top, it really makes the flavors of the cake pop!
Not to mention how pretty it makes it. You can definitely leave the coconut off if you’re not a fan though. 🙂
When you’re making this cake, just be sure to let it cool for about 15 minutes in the pan before inverting it onto your serving plate to let it cool completely. That way the blueberry filling has a chance to firm back up a bit.
Not gonna lie, this cake tasted so good that it reminded me of a jelly filled donut. 😉
