Blueberry Poke Cake is semi homemade dessert, simple and easy enough to make for any occasion, but also fancy enough to serve at special events.
This Blueberry Poke Cake recipe uses boxed white cake mix and Cool Whip topping, but what makes it extra special is creamy and delicious homemade cheesecake blueberry filling.
Since I’m totally obsessed with blueberries lately, which you might noticed after my Blueberry Truffles and Lasagna (both made with freeze dried blueberries powder and frozen blueberries) after I finally got some fresh blueberries I had to figured out what how to use them this time.
I scrolled a little through my blog and realized that for 3 years of blogging I have only 2 poke cake recipes: Chocolate Poke Cake and Pumpkin Poke Cake. So I came up with this idea, I’ll make a blueberry poke cake! And what should I fill the pokes with, instant pudding, sweetened condensed milk, blueberry sauce…? Well, blueberry cheesecake filling sounded great to me! I decided to make a little experiment and mix cream cheese, sweetened condensed milk, heavy cream and of course blueberries. I put some blueberries in the freezer so I could crush them in a food processor and add into cheesecake mixture to get nice, purple color and mild blueberry flavor that isn’t over powering because I didn’t want tto add any artificial color or flavor.
I used only half boxed white cake mix and baked it in 8×8 inch pan, because I really don’t have enough room in my fridge for all that dessert that I had to make for the purpose of blogging. But I overdid it with the filling, and realized that I had enough for whole 9×13 inch cake. After I chilled leftovers of blueberry cheesecake filling in the fridge it was lick the bowl good, so I ain’t regretted, I eat it all with a spoon.
Blueberry Cheesecake filling isn’t overpowering with blueberry flavor so when you cut the cake, top each square generously with fresh blueberries and it will taste amazing.
This Blueberry Poke Cake will be perfect, refreshing treat for summer parties or potlucks, and you can make it really quick and easy. No one will even notice that it’s just half homemade and that you haven’t spent hours in the kitchen.
