This Blueberry Refrigerator Cake is the perfect dessert to keep in the fridge and have dessert covered all week long. Now that blueberries are readily available this is the perfect time to liven up your desserts with some fresh fruit.
My favorite part of this cake is the blueberry filling, it’s great on this cake but it also makes a perfect jelly that stores well in the refrigerator.
To make this cake you will need to preheat your oven to 375 degrees and grease 2 round cakes pans with butter or margarine.
Mix the cake mix and ingredients according to the directions on the package. I typically go with a cake mix that lists adding oil and eggs. I think this makes the cake the perfect texture but any basic vanilla cake mix will do.
Add the mix to the greased pans and pop the cakes into the oven. Bake according to directions on the cake mix, for round pans it usually takes about 23 minutes.
While the cakes are baking make the blueberry mixture so it has time to cool. Add the sugar, honey, and blueberries to a pot, heat to boil then immediately turn down and continue to cook on medium. Stir while the mixture is heating up and becoming a jelly type consistency. Once the desired consistency has been reached, remove from stove and allow to cool completely. To speed this process up, pop it in the fridge to bring the temp down faster.
When cakes are done baking allow them to cool for about 20 minutes before removing from the pans. Place one cake on a cake stand to pile the blueberry filling on top of it.
Spread the blueberry starting from the center out, it is going to spread a little on it’s own, if you add too much it will spill over. This doesn’t hurt the flavor of the cake at all but it does make the icing look messy so you may want to avoid this for presentation purposes only.
After adding the blueberries, place the other cake on top and begin icing the sides and top of the cake. Add blueberries and cherries to the top to make the color really pop! Place the cake into the refrigerator and allow to cool for 3 hours before serving, this refrigerator cake can be stored for up to one week.
Have you ever made a refrigerator cake before or do you prefer a warm cake fresh out of the oven?
