blueberry lemon cream cheese cake

desert challenge time!

Lady Behind the Curtain Dessert Challenge


as you are reading this i am currently enjoying the lovely outdoors in southern colorado. no internet, no cell phones, no power. this is one of the best weeks of the year. besides christmas. and any other week my husband doesn’t have to work.:) while i’m fishing and hiking and reading and sitting doing nothing with my ever growing belly, you enjoy this yummy food for thought and i’ll come back and make you all jealous with stories of sitting and doing nothing and loving it.

growing up my mom always had some dessert recipes up her sleeve that didn’t include chocolate. mostly for when my grandma was around since she can’t eat it, but also because sometimes she wanted something besides chocolate. i thought she was craazy. but, then again, i’ve been craving everything but chocolate this pregnancy. maybe that’s really why my mom wanted non-chocolate desserts. well, she is pretty much the queen of cheesecakes, but i’ve already given you a great recipe for one, and i’m actually not a big fan, so i decided to share a variation of a cheese cake, just more like a cake than a cheesecake.

you follow me? maybe this will help you visualize…

get it? you put cream cheese in cheesecake, so this is a cream cheese cake. ya. that yumminess is going on right now.

here’s the deets:
1 lemon cake mix, prepared as directed
8oz cream cheese, softened
1/4 c sugar
2 Tbs lemon juice

1) prepare cake mix as directed and pour into greased and sugared bundt pan. {sugar is the secret to an easy exit.}
2) combine cream cheese, sugar and just enough lemon juice to make mixture pourable.
3) pour cream cheese mixture in the middle of the cake mix in the bundt pan.
4) bake as directed. cool 10mins and remove from pan. let cool and then top with whip cream and blueberries. yum

see you all in another week!
