Alright, I finally got some of my recipes together and fianlly got the blueberry dream cake ready to submit. It is absolutely devine and has taken me much experimenting to find the right brand of blueberries to use. Have fun making it. I have tried making it from scratch and could never get the cake done all the way through. So I use a DH box mix for this recipe. Feel free to experiment with your own homemade cake recipes. If it works, let me know, and hopefully you might share the recipe with me.
- 1 box of DH white cake mix
- 3 egg whites
- 1 1/3 cup water
- 2 tbs. of oil
- 1 can of COMSTOCK brand blueberry filling/topper
Make DH cake mix as directed on box. Pour batter into greased and floured pans.
Adding the blueberries: Open can of Comstock blueberries, DO NOT DRAIN. Using a straining spoon, lay all the blueberries and filling on top of the batter. gently fold or cut the blueberries into the batter, until you can see them under the surface of the batter. DO NOT stir the blueberries into the mix or they will all end up at the bottom of the cake. Leave them near the top, the berries will settle thorughout the cake as it bakes.
Oven Temp: Preheat oven to 300 bake for 90 minutes. Temp and time are crucial for this cake. If the cake is not baked slowly it will burn around the edges and remain a solid line of goo in the center. Make sure to do a test cake for time and any variation in your oven temp.
Note: I have tried other filligs and COMSTOCK is the only brand that I found that worked that did not leave a center line of goo throught the cake. Other brands had too much gel filling. As for icing a soft Vanilla bc is a perfect complimet for this cake because it is so rich.
Yeah!!! The recipe is finally on here.
Thanks for sharing this Tesso~ I can't wait to try it!
Just tried this and have tasted crumbs which are really yummy but I was wondering if you could substitute real blueberries for some of the blueberry filling? Maybe something like half filling and half pint of fresh blueberries. I did find that the filling was a bit too heavy but might find something different when I cut into it. Can't wait to eat it and thought about making one for 4th of July celebration. Thanks for sharing this recipe and am trying to restrain from cutting it even as I type.
nan1360.. I say give it a try. for my tastebuds the fresh were just too bitter tasting against the sweetness of the cake. A thought .. you could get another can of comstock and simply put the blueberries in a strainer and rinse the filling off and just add them to the mix as well. I say experiment and let me know how it goes for you !! : )
I use DH white cake or yellow cake mix puree the blueberries and use them as the water part of the mix. I also add blue berry jello mix. It's a very BLUE cake. I use on top of red velvet for my red, white and blue cupcakes for the 4th of July.
Ok, so I tried this recipe with fresh blueberries and it was delicious!!! I used a yellow cake mix (DH) instead of white and it was great! Thanks for sharing!
Do you put all the ingredients from the box plus the ingredients from your recipe or just the ones call on the box? Sorry, I am confused.
Absolutely delicious. I even scraped the can afterwards, mixed it with my butter cream to give it just a hint of blueberry flavor and used it for the filling. Great recipe!
I made this cake using Food Lion brand blueberry pie filling and fresh blueberrys it rocked! No problem what so ever with the blueberrys falling to the bottom. Thank you for sharing this recipe.
Has anyone tried this with a lemon icing?
Has anyone tried this with wasc?
You could use strips that you soak in water that go around the pan to keep it from burning.
I had trouble making this cake and I used the COMSTOCK blueberries I folded them in and when I turned the cake out of the pan I got a nasty blueberry burn OUCHIE! Any ideas on what i done wrong? Thanks
