Lemon Blueberry Angel Cake – Easy Dessert For A Crowd.
I love lemon desserts. They’re light, refreshing, and perfect for spring and summer. This angel cake is no exception. It’s one of my favorite cakes to make, it’s easy to put together, but it looks impressive on the table. You can make it ahead of time too!
Prep Time: 20 minutes
- Preheat your oven to 350°F and prepare a 9×13″ pan by greasing it with non, stick spray or butter.
- In a large bowl, mix together the whole wheat flour, baking powder and salt until well combined. Pour this into your prepared pan and set aside for now while you make the batter for the cake itself!
Total Time: 2 hours and 15 minutes
In total, this recipe takes two hours and 15 minutes to prepare, cook and serve. The preparation time will vary depending on your skill level in the kitchen and how many helpers you have on hand. The cooking time is approximately one hour. Serving time depends on the number of people you are serving, but it could be anywhere between five to 45 minutes depending on whether or not there are leftovers or not. Cleaning up can take as little as 20 minutes if everything goes smoothly (or much longer if it doesn’t).
- 1 box lemon cake mix
- 2 eggs
- 1 tsp vanilla extract (or flavoring of your choice)
- 1 package blueberries
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease and flour a 9×13, inch baking pan.
- In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder and salt.
- In a medium bowl, whisk together the sugar and eggs until well combined (about 1 minute). Add the lemon juice, zest and butter; mix until smooth (about 30 seconds). Add this mixture to your dry ingredients; stir until just combined (do not overmix) , do not undermix or your cake will be dense! Pour batter into prepared pan and bake for about 30 minutes or until golden brown on top. Let cool completely before frosting with cream cheese frosting or spreading lemon curd on top of each slice!
- The cooking time for this cake will vary depending on the size of your pans, so keep that in mind. A 9, inch springform pan will take about an hour to bake through, while a 9, inch square baking pan or 10, inch round cake pan will only need 45 minutes to bake through. If you don’t have a springform pan, be sure to grease your regular cake pans well and then line them with parchment paper before pouring in the batter.
- If you don’t have access to a food processor or blender at home (or if you’re just too lazy), feel free to use 1 cup all, purpose flour instead of 3/4 cup white whole wheat flour and 3/4 cup granulated sugar instead of 1/2 cup packed brown sugar. It’s not quite as fluffy as when I used my stand mixer with those two extra steps above, but it’ll still give you good results!
- If you don’t have access to one of those fancy stand mixers with all those buttons and paddles, then by all means use your own strength and muscles! Mixing this batter by hand shouldn’t take more than 5 minutes—if that long—and since we’re using melted butter here instead of melted coconut oil like some other recipes call for (which makes it harder for me since I’m allergic), there won’t be much cleanup required either; just make sure everything gets folded together until smooth into itself without any clumps remaining behind before pouring into prepared pans!

Lemon Blueberry Angel Cake is best to serve with
In terms of serving, I recommend ice cream. It’s the most obvious choice for a dessert like this one, but with so many wonderful options out there, it can be hard to choose just one. For example, if you’re in a mood for something classic and old, fashioned, try vanilla bean ice cream from Baskin Robbins or Häagen, Dazs (or go all out with their limited edition Cinnamon Roll flavor). If you’re looking for something more sophisticated—and who isn’t?—I’d suggest salted caramel from Ben & Jerry’s or cookie dough from Blue Bell Creameries. And if none of those strike your fancy, then go ahead and make yourself some pancakes! You deserve it; you’ve earned it after eating all those calories earlier today at lunchtime when we went on our little field trip together over there in New York City where all these delicious restaurants are located too.
So, there you have it. Lemon Blueberry Angel Cake. It’s a delicious way to start your day and it is great for dessert as well! If you like this recipe, please feel free to share with others or leave a comment below letting me know what you think!
