You guys I need major springtime thoughts after this past weekend!! We were covered in snow and it was really cold, yuck!! I am looking forward to this weekend because we are supposed to hit the 80’s! This Colorado weather is too crazy if you ask me! So, I am going to need to eat a big slice of this lemon blueberry poke cake until then.
I made this cake for our Easter dessert this year because it’s just so cheery and screams spring. Plus it’s a good way to try out a new dessert recipe and get rid of it all at the same time! Hey just keepin it real here folks. I had already made it once before but I like to make my recipes at least twice and I really didn’t need to keep that much cake around the house. 🙂
The flavor of this cake is amazing and you can make this mostly homemade or take some help from the store with a store bought cake mix and lemon curd. I used my Homemade Lemon Curd which I prefer over the store bought stuff. But if you’re in a rush or just don’t want to make lemon curd you should be able to find it in the grocery store next to the jellies and jams. I did use a store bought lemon cake mix but feel free to use a homemade cake if you prefer.
The blueberry syrup is homemade but trust me it is super easy!! You could also substitute the freshly whipped cream with cool whip but I suggest making the whipped cream yourself. It tastes soooo much better!!!
You can make the lemon curd and blueberry syrup the day before so you’re not trying to fit it all in while the cake is baking. Just warm the lemon curd and syrup up a little in the microwave so it spreads a little easier. I don’t suggest making the whipped cream in advance because sometimes it can get a little watery.
I chose to top this cake with golden oreos (but the lemon ones would also be great!) and fresh blueberries. I love how pretty this cake is and it really is easy to put together! And since it’s a poke cake that makes plenty to share, it will be perfect to take to all of your spring and summertime gatherings!!
