Lemon Blueberry Poke Cake Recipe
This lemon blueberry poke cake is super lemony, uses my easy blueberry filling and then frosted with a delicious lemon cream cheese frosting. This poke cake recipe is super refreshing and one that will be requested over and over.
The blueberry filling is made with fresh blueberries. But when blueberries are not in season, I use my frozen blueberries which I froze when they were in season. Blueberries are one of my favorite fruits and when paired up with anything lemon, it’s heaven. Lemon and blueberries, what a delicious combination.
Lemon Poke Cake With Blueberry Filling
Making this lemon blueberry poke cake is easy. Start out my making the lemon cake according to package directions. Once the cake has finished baking, poke a lot of holes throughout the cake with the end of a wooden spoon so the blueberry filling can make its way down the holes. A little extra help from you will be needed to get the filling down into the holes.

It’s super easy and how I manage to fill the holes is by spreading the filling over the top and gently poke the filling down into the holes that have already been made. I use the wooden spoon again. It’s not hard and as you go along, you will be able to tell where the holes are. Believe me, this is so worth the extra effort.
Cover the cake with plastic wrap and place in the fridge to chill once the blueberry filling has been added. Make the lemon cream cheese frosting and once the cake has chilled, frost the cake. Chilling the cake first makes spreading the frosting onto the blueberries a lot easier and less messy.
