Enjoy the bright flavors of spring with this Berries and Cream Lemon Bundt Cake. It starts with a boxed cake mix, making it a quick and easy dessert.
I seem to be posting a lot of lemon recipes lately. Last week it was Lemon Bars, a couple weeks before that it was Lemon Shake Ups and now this lovely Berries and Cream Lemon Bundt Cake is gracing the screen. I can’t help it! The lemons are everywhere and using them up creatively is a delicious way to spend my time. 😉
This recipe starts with a boxed cake mix, making it simple and quick to put together. The addition of the berries and lemon just help to “fancy it up” a bit. You’ll need cake mix, the ingredients called for on the box like oil, water and eggs and then fresh blueberries, strawberries and lemon.
Start by mixing the cake ingredients and adding fresh lemon zest and juice. Bake in a standard bundt cake pan, following the time listed on the box.
Chop the strawberries into small pieces so they match the size of the blueberries. Now comes the fun part!
Use a serrated knife to cut the cooled cake in half. Using a spoon and your fingers, scoop out cake from the middle of the ring, being sure not to go too deep or get too close to the edges. (Do this to the top and bottom of the cake.)
Pipe whipped topping into the ring, topping with berries and more whipped topping. Yummy!
Then flip the top of the cake back over the bottom and cover the whole thing with the rest of the whipped topping. Don’t forget to add some more lemon zest!
Slice and serve topped with more fresh berries. It’s like spring on a plate!
Berries and Cream Lemon Bundt Cake
- 1 box white cake mix
- 3 large eggs
- 1/3 cup canola oil
- 1 cup water
- Juice and zest of 1 lemon
- ½ pint strawberries
- ½ pint blueberries
- 1 8 oz container whipped topping
- Non-stick cooking spray
- Piping bag (or sandwich bag)
- Preheat oven to 350°F.
- Combine cake mix, eggs, oil, water, lemon juice and zest of ¾ of the lemon.
- Bake according to directions on the box.
- Chop strawberries into small pieces. (About the size of the blueberries.)
- When cake is done, set aside to cool.
- After cooled, use a serrated knife to cut cake in half.
- Using a spoon and your fingers, scoop out cake from the middle of the ring, being sure not to go too deep or get too close to the edges. Do this to both the top and bottom half.
- Add about 1/3 of the whipped topping to the piping bag and pipe it into the bottom ring.
- Add strawberries and blueberries, allowing to mound a little higher than the cake. (Because the ring of cake you took out of the top half will be filled by this.
- Add a ring of whipped topping on top of that.
- Flip top cake half back on top and gently press down. Top with remaining whipped topping.
- Zest remaining ¼ of the lemon on top of the cake.
