  • 1 pkg. 2-layer-size white cake mix

  • 1 cup buttermilk

  • 4 eggs

  • cup canola oil

  • 1 tablespoon lemon zest

  • ½ teaspoon almond extract

  • ½ cup frozen lemonade concentrate, thawed

  • 1 recipe Blueberry Sauce

  • 1 8 ounce container frozen whipped dessert topping, thawed

  • ½ cup lemon curd

  • Quartered lemon slices (optional)

Blueberry Sauce

  • cup sugar

  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch

  • ¼ cup water

  • 2 cup fresh or frozen blueberries


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease a 13x9-inch baking pan.

  2. In a large bowl combine the first six ingredients (through almond extract). Beat with a mixer on low just until combined. Beat on medium 2 minutes, scraping bowl occasionally. Spread batter into the prepared baking pan.

  3. Bake 25 to 30 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool cake 5 minutes. Meanwhile, prepare Blueberry Sauce.

  4. Using the handle of a wooden spoon, poke holes through cake about 1 inch apart. Drizzle lemonade concentrate over top of cake, brushing evenly. Spread Blueberry Sauce over cake. Cool completely.

  5. In a large bowl stir a small amount of the whipped topping into the lemon curd to lighten. Fold in the remaining whipped topping. Spread over cake. If desired, top each serving with a lemon slice. Cover and store leftovers in the refrigerator up to 24 hours.
