Blueberry Pound Cake

Today's deliciousness was made Monday night and it is called Blueberry Pound Cake! This dessert is the bomb! I love the simplicity of the dessert as well as being able to use fresh blueberries that are in season! I have made a few changes from the original which I will explain as I go along.

Blueberry Pound Cake

1 package butter-flavored cake mix
8 ounces cream cheese, softened (I used 1/3 less fat cream cheese)
1/2 cup vegetable oil (I used coconut oil for the first time - yum!)
3 eggs
2 cups blueberries

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Lightly grease and flour a 10-inch tube pan.

Combine cake mix, cream cheese, oil and eggs. Beat until smooth.

Gently fold in berries.

Spoon into prepared pan and bake for about 1 hour or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

Serves 12 to 16. (From America Profile submitted by Donna Roane)

I tried something new with this recipe. I tried coconut oil. This was hard from me because I don't like coconut. After this cake bakes, however, you do not taste the coconut. If anything, coconut oil lends the cake a bit more sweetness! Yum!

The last picture of the cake would have looked better but I did not have much success getting the cake out of the tube pan without the cake breaking a bit. Oh well! It still tastes great!

Thanks for reading! Have a great night!


  1. Thanks for the reminder! I need to get back to our bulk food store and pick up my blueberries. I fill a 5qt ice cream bucket and the kids love snacking on frozen berries all winter.

10 Preparedness Items You Should Be Buying Every Month

As crazy as it seems, some people make prepping harder than it has to be. Learning skills can be hard, but the end rewards are so worth it. The work can be hard, but the pay off is that jobs get done and you have accomplished something for the future. However...preppers still need stuff. We can produce a lot of our own things and survive just fine. We still need the items that will make survival easier now and, heaven forbid, if anything bad happens. We need things to keep our lifestyle simpler and easier if something happens. Over the eight years or so that I have been prepping, I have some things that I buy almost every month. Some months when the budget is tight, I might not purchase any of these. Then I appreciate having these things on hand! Below is my list of things I buy every month. I don't make one big trip and buy all these things in one trip. I add them to my cart at the grocery store, department store, online shopping, and whatnot. I spend a little bit every s

New preppers wonder what they should be buying for their preps every month. More experienced preppers wonder what holes they should be plugging in their food storage to be better prepared.
